A Rock Night in Uster at Rockcity, the only club in Switzerland that also welcomes newcomer from near and far, and the good reputation of this venue sounds very promising for this evening with the Finns Private Line and their Glamrock- Punk Support Sister. The club, located in Easter Switzerland, opens with a delay as the bands were 2 hours late. Soaking wet from rain we enter and find out that the venue is smaller than expected, there is only one small room for stage, bar, several small tables and chairs, WC and merchandise table. 100 people max can squeeze in here, so it´s going to be tight.
Check the photo gallery here! Sister Those young Swedes, all around 20, please the 90 % female audience. Their Glam-Punkrock gets the party going. The stage is very small, though, four people have just enough room, but how should 6-8 people manage here? Only if the singer doesn´t mind to collide with a bass or guitar neck from time to time... . so a bit less stage action, and better to have the audience jump around. Finally the guys pull a hardcore fan, featuring identical hair do and outfit, on stage to have him sing a song with them, but you could hardly hear him, so the Swiss major Punk Glamrock talent remains still undiscovered.

Private Line Many seem to have been anxiously waiting for those guys, as you could not see them outside Finland before, and had to be content with listening to the record. The band opens with „Evil Knievel Factor“. kicking it off from 0 - 100 in 0,1 seconds. The approximately 50 people get a party going, and it´s getting hotter inside, turning the room into a Sauna. But when the music is great you just don´t mind. Singer Sammy has a nice solution and gets to the edge to the stage, really close to the crowd. They play „Uniform“ and „Prozac Nation“, and when it´s heating up too much, slow ballads like „Billon“, „Star Hotel“ and „Alive“ take people back to the ground again. A great song choice, and if you go to th back of the club, you can hear the high quality vocals, in the front you can hardly hear them. By the way: Guest guitarist on this tour is J.V from the Finnish band Machine Men.
A great evening, the band leaves after 4 encores, and people keep on partying until 3.00 h when Rock City is closing down.
