A weekend of awesomeness & epic fails

A weekend of awesomeness and epic fails

This is Tamara. Kay threw his drumsticks into the audience last night & she caught ‘em. Problem was, I called it one song too early so he needed them back. She pushed her way to the front of the crowd (not easy at a festival) & saved the day. These guys had been waiting 2 years to see us live & demonstrated some excellent stickering skills too.

So… why did we only have one pair of drumsticks? Here are the bizarre series of fails we had this weekend:

  1. Kay put his cymbal & drumstick bag on top of the car after our Munich show on Friday. We drove off without them. He may or may not have been intoxicated when he did it.
  2. Adil broke a string in the most epic part of his bass solo last night.
  3. We couldn’t start the tour van after last night’s show because we left the lights on.
  4. Using google maps to walk to the hotel is great if you’ve got reception. If not, you end up on a 2 hour scenic tour at 3 in the morning.

You can’t help but laugh. The shows were great & the crowds were rockin’. An awesome & very memorable weekend.

Busking in Berlin – All My Life (Foo Fighters cover)

At the beginning of this year we decided to take a break from non-stop touring to work on a new record. As usual we ended up in Berlin- our home away from home since we began living on the road in 2010. Grungy, cheap and overflowing with artists, it’s an inspiring city and our favourite place to catch our breath.

We’ve been busking a lot to cover our food and rent. It’s been frustrating at times since we’re most at home on stage with amps cranked to 11. But it’s also a lot of fun.

We make more money when we thrown in a few covers- here’s one we played at Mauerpark last Sunday. Complete with crazy local dancing.
