This is a complete but surprisingly (or not) short performance of Luxembourgish neofolk,
etc. act. Rome were one of the headliners at the traditional open air celebration of the
last days of Summer. Mėnuo Juodaragis (Black-Horned Moon or MJR for short) is an
independent festival of contemporary Baltic culture and alternative music representing the
heritage of pagan tradition, post-folk currents and the vanguard of postmodern music. MJR
XVI took place on Great Island of Zarasas Lake, Northern Lithuania.
The beginning of the show evolved from soundchecking, so it fades in. At the middle of the
first song the sound improves, because I moved at the center position to the stage.
Overall the sound quality is good enough (8/10).
Rome played 3 unreleased songs, 2 of them Jérôme Reuter played solo as encore. I managed
to find only "Still Well" title. Btw, according to what Jérôme said in June 2013, these
songs could be the final songs of Rome: "In (…) upcoming album, I believe I have found the
perfect subject matter and sound for a goodbye. We’ll see."
