Küçükçiftlik Park (which is probably still reeling from Wednesday's Wailers concert) is hosting Swedish alternative band Mando Diao this weekend. On the off-chance that you're a fan, and haven't bought your tickets yet, hurry up and get them from Biletix ASAP...
Don’t waste your time trying to figure out what “Mando Diao” means. The name of this Swedish foursome is the whimsical invention of founding member Björn Dixgård. The band picked up speed when Dixgård, together with vocalist/guitarist Gustaf Norén, supposedly embarked on a marathon 14-month songwriting session in a beach house in the late 90s. It was only a matter of time before they signed on to the EMI Sweden label and released their first album, 2002’s Bring’Em In. Their latest album, Give me Fire,came out in 2009, and was produced by the Salla Salazar from the hip-hop band The Latin Kings.
There will be a warm-up at 9:00 PM by progressive rock group Helicopria, with Mando Diao coming on stage an hour later.
