Bang Bang Berlin

There was traffic even before we got to the practice space to load the van. Then half the people in the band were not there. Rest were either flying, driving other ways or going to be picked up at home because there were other things that needed doing. Oh well. En route to Berlin. Drive. Stop. Pee. Coffee. Repeat a few times. The drive scenery was great though. Bright sunshine and it’s fall as you all know so lot’s of colour and tree’s to look at. Loved it. Arrived exactly on time at the Bang Bang Club. Set up and everybody arrived. We did a sound check then did a few interviews, one of which was held in the toilets. All headed off for something to eat while the band Mega! Mega! did their soundcheck. Was a very late show. I don’t think we played until 12.30 or so. Was fun to be back in Berlin again. Good show. Afterwards we hung around for a bit then headed off to our hostel where we grabbed a few beers.

Barely slept because of the beds in the hostel and the fact that I forgot to put in some earplugs to drown out the snoring. I think everyone else is also just as tired. Our rental van is taking some getting used too. The seating is so totally different from the White Pearl. It’s sucking all our last bits of energy – there’s no comfortable position to be found. Back in Amsterdam by 8pm after having left Berlin at 11am. Traffic as always as soon as we cross the border back into Holland. Two days in a van. Over and out.voicst0931oct9

Very strange show. Got to Berlin a day in advance so we would be in PLENTY of time. When we got to the Postbahnhof in PLENTY of time we heard that FATM’s bacline had burned in a fire the day before so things would be a little delayed today. Well, we waited until an hour after the doors should have opened. It almost looked like we would not get to play. 9pm and the doors opened. At 9pm we put our gear on stage in 2 minutes flat. Then we waited around for the stage guys from the venue (who were a little stressed…) to plug in and patch the cables. This took 45 minutes. All the time we stood on the stage in front of a full venue, no music from a DJ or anything. Interesting. So got to play but various vocals and sax could not be heard. Anyway. Had fun.

Due to us being able to support Florence and the Machine this month we had to reschedule an earlier planned Berlin date. So, we’ll be in Berlin not only with Florence and the Machine on the 12th of October (Frannz Club), but also for Halloween on October 31st at Club Bang Bang for their Indie Pop Circus Party. Check our show list for all our shows!
