Noiserv - David Santos

Teatro Tivoli BBVA, Lisbon, April 8th 2018

I first heard Noiserv just over 4 years ago, and have been waiting / hoping for him to come and play in London since then, but then decided that the only solution was to just go to Portugal instead. The gig ended up being as great as I hoped from watching his live dvd and videos online - just an amazing build-up of sounds and tunes from one guy, with tv screens showing the various parts of his instruments at all times. It was a shame to not understand Portuguese and understand everything he was saying in between all of his songs, but lovely to meet and chat with him afterwards. Hopefully will see him play again one day!
