OK folks, here’s what happened when we went over to the foreign lands…
We began our 1st of 10 shows in 10 nights in Manchester…….
July 1st: Manchester, UK. : The Roadhouse
This was our boat for the journey…
Dave, our journey master….
Our tour books….
July 2nd London, UK. : The 100 Club
The 100 Club has hosted many rock bashes through the years and we were honored to play there. The walls wore photos of previous rock evenings and these are just a few of the jams that occurred in the 350 capacity room …
July 3rd: Oxford, UK. – Zodiac
July 4th: London, UK. – 02 Wireless Festival
July 5th: Werchter, Belgium – ROCK WERCHTER FESTIVAL
For the record, this was probably one of most fun days of my brief existence.
Oh my god playing on the massive stage was fun. We were so pumped that we got a little too excited and bloodied ourselves… HERE is Julian’s hand…
Needless to say, the festival lineup was top notch. We went out to see rock while Dave found a comfortable stop for some much needed slumber.
MGMT bringing pain
Band of Horses bringing pain
Kings of Leon bringing pain
Sigur Ros bringing one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Mesmerizing and the first time I got the privilege of hearing songs off their new album which is equally fantastic. Truly effortlessly enchanting.
Radiohead bringing pain…
Radiohead live = an operation better than most.
Somehow no one kicked me out of side stage and I was able to learn a few things observing the masters in their habitat.
July 6th: Nijimegen, Holland:
If there is a place to recuperate after a long day / night of fun. It is NOT Holland. Holland is way too much fun. Nijimegen, we will come back to you as soon as we possibly can.
HA!!!! The festival gave us some old merch boxes for our stuff. We got Iggy’s leftovers!
July 7th: Milan, Italy: Rolling Stone
Needless to say, we were pretty dead at this point of the trip. All we needed to officially enter delirium was an all night drive
from Nijimegen to Milan.
Drum jam w/ James and Matt of MGMT…
Whigs rock in Italy Land.
MGMT rock in Italy Land.
