Our Tour has been running for more then a week now.
Last Saturday I took the early morning train up to Leipzig to meet up with Rykka there. The same night we had a show at FraKu in Leipzig. It was nice to have a big stage for our first show together and we enjoyed it and got a cute apartment for the night in a trendy part of the town.
The next day we drove to Berlin to stay with our friend Peter Ray. We did an interview and a couple of songs at Fritz radio with Christoph Schrag who has a great radio show called Fritz Unsigned. On Tuesday we played at White Trash in Berlin. It's a great venue. Dark and quirky with a rockstar attitude and the best burgers ever. We were happy to see some good friends that came out. We didn't get very much sleep that night because of crazy loud construction workers right above our heads. The next day we just hang out in Berlin taking it chill and discovering some thrift stores in town.
At noon the next day we hit the road towards Poland. Arriving in Poznan we did a video clip for the Poznan Balcony TV at the Hill Hostel. We made friends right away with the balcony TV crew there. They where really cool people. Later we played our show at Scena Pod Minoga. The audience was incredible! Cheering and dancing like crazies! We played the last few songs offstage in the audience. Later that night we hung out with a bunch of people that invited us to an after party to drink Vodka and listen to Michael Jackson and get barked at from a crazy dog called Jazz who also loved to eat potato chips.The next day we where invited to breakfast and did another thrift store tour in Poznan. Driving back to Germany we got lost a couple of times due to the Navigation that kept sending us to some random snowy backyards instead of highways. We drove back through cold landscapes, scattered with modern windmills and arrived in Greifswald just to have the best show ever.
The venue, "Kulturbar", was crowded, cozy, warm and decorated with candles. Christian the booker gave us the best drinks called flaming tiger and russian coke shots to help us fight the tiredness!
We were starting to feel really tired, especially Rykka because she has been driving all the way up to now! Also we really need to shower. Haha. The next day we hit the road again towards Lübeck to the island Fehrman up on the north sea.
We were happy to be welcomed by a really nice venue called "Cafe Liebevoll" where we had a nice show with a really appreciative audience. They loved our music and we sold lots of CD's and Vinyl. We were also so happy to have a long sleeping night ahead of us in a lonely deserted hostel. It was so nice for us that we decided to stay one day longer in Fehrman. We drove to the ocean and made a visit to the lighthouse. Hoping to find the Jimi Hendrix monument that was built there after he apparently played a festival shortly before his death so we where told.
Tomorrow we are taking a Ferry to Denmark and driving to Copenhagen.
