It’s been a while since we reported on Bonn’s best all-girl band MiaoMio, and things have certainly changed since I last caught them playing opposite Bonn Main Station in 2010. For one thing they are now 50% male. Drummer Sarah is raising a daughter born last October and bassist Eva Marxen is studying hard.
With a new drummer (Jan) and bassman Stephan Kater the ‘new’ Band played a short set at the Rheinau on Friday, with Sarah Brasack on keys and of course vocals and guitar from Anika Auweiler. Dogged by technical problems from the moment that ‘Lauf’ began their set, they still made for an enjoyable evening with a sound that seemed to my ears at least to be rather rockier than previously.
No technical problems though on the video below, where the Band contribute music to Cologne Director Kim Anderson’s film ‘Warum Glühwürmchen Leuchten’:
