On April 24 Lviv’s celebrated Picasso nightlife venue hosted famous Ukrainian group Tartak for what turned out to be one of the liveliest concerts of the year so far. Tartak are currently on a promotional tour connected to the release of their new album, but the group will rarely have been on the receiving end of a crowd as enthusiastic as the Picasso masses, who literally packed the venue out to such an extent that there was no place for an apple to fall! Tartak frontman and well-known Ukrainian patriot Sashko Polozhinskyi said that the reaction of the Lviv crowd was exactly what his band were hoping for and commented of the event: “for the past few years Tartak has been known for a number of sad and serious songs but the new album will change such perceptions, as it is full of the trademark Tartak energy and positivity.” He then went on to prove his point by leaping head first into the crowd and surfing over their heads whilst singing!
