The day after their acclaimed Vienna show the Belgian band Triggerfinger drop by at Supersense. Singer Ruben Block, bass player Paul Van Bruystegem and drummer Mario Goossens obviously enjoy the little break from the touring routine and immerse into a world of polaroid cameras, analogue recording gear and great coffee. However, they came to perform and record a short acoustic set in the back of the store. And what a treat that is! Triggerfinger play a couple of songs from their current album “By Absence Of The Sun” and as an encore start into their charts hit “I Follow Rivers”, mixing in some Falco lyrics (from the song “Jeanny”) for an intense finish.
The café and conceptstore Supersense is situated in a Venetian style palazzo with golden stucco. Vienna’s most beautiful store is a paradise for lovers of analogue cameras, vinyl collectors or people who are looking for a fashionable gift. It’s no surprise that analogue instant photography is big here – it’s the only place in the world that offers chocolate-coloured polaroids as big as 20x24inch (50x60cm) – as the owner of Supersense has also co-founded “The Impossible Project” that produces instant film for classic Polaroid cameras. Also in terms of vinyl recording the shop is a cabinet of wonder. In a wooden record elevator you can produce your own vinyl-single and get your album cover pressed by hand on an old printing machine. And because trying out fancy gimmicks can be exhausting too, you might end up lounging in the entry area with some hand-roasted coffee or craft beer.
