It was summer 2017 when Moderat last played Athens in June. A few months later, they announced their "end of an era" hiatus period, during which both Modeselektor and Apparat (put their names together and you spell Moderat) released their own solo albums. Well, the end of that era has... ended and Moderat are back with their fourth LP, aptly titled MORE D4TA, followed by a world tour with a stop in Athens. But not just any stop. A stop at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, in the foothills of the Acropolis (catching an outdoor concert at this 2000-year-old Roman marvel is one of Athens' most unmissable experiences). Ticket prices are spicy, but there you have it.
