okay

I know I’ve been off for a while, but school took over my life for the past week.
Also pissed because the free internet access at the hostel didn’t like this account so I couldn’t blog from Germany…

Anyway, like I said, Berlin was grrreat.
Thursday consisted of walking.. and walking… and walking. 17km Did my feet hurt? Yes. Did my WHOLE body hurt? YEEES. That night we went to a rock club called Sage. According to Me and Michan it would take 20min to walk there… we walked for about an hour, haha, and we’re still trying to blame Therése for that 😛
Great club though… lounge, dancefloor downstairs, good livebands, metal/hard rock dancefloor.. good looking guys, haha.. what a disappointment to come back to sweden 😉

At Sage

Friday… woke up pretty early, had some breakfast and went to the venue. Really scruffy area, kind like a back yard, with lots of cool graffiti! Still haven’t gotten the pics from Therése and Michan though… *evil eye*
Anyway, there was almost no qeue outside and since we’d probably go with Therése to meet up someone from EMI later we didn’t really bother to keep a spot. Having wandered around looking at the building, meeting some jamaican guy and wondered why it said lounge on a brick wall, we went to the store to buy some lunch and just chill.

Later we met up with the guy from EMI, Bollnäs-Martin and someone (Mari) from Bandit Gothenburg, and the two winners of the contest to come and see the band in Germany. They were eating out, but since we’d already eaten we only had some drinks. Really nice 🙂

At the restaurant

After that, it was time for the gig.. Pics will come in a separate post later 🙂
Hung back for the opening act which wasn’t very interesting… good sound, but not for warming up the crowd. The me and Michan managed to get some really good places about 15-20m from the stage. They began with A Beautiful Lie and you stand there and can’t help but to wonder why you do this. Why spend that much money and time on a showcase gig?  The Attack kicks in and you realise 😀 The playes for about an hour and the songs from the new album were really good live!

After the gig Therése went to the meet & greet while we went around looking for where the signing was supposed to be.. Turned out that the qeue for that was outside and it seemed like everyone at the gig was going to line up. So instead, when Therése was done, we went to the supermarket for bread, garlic cream cheese, vodka and orange juice. That is, almost the exact same thing as breakfast. Went back to the venue and had a little picnic then stood last in line for the signing.. (or almost last) being a bit tipsy, I got the most awesome idea!…and here it is 😀

Most awesome bread.

Also got my ticket signed, to have something that wouldn’t mould away, haha. Then we started to make our way home.. A VERY roundabout way home.. Including walking in the wrong direction to find a drum & bass club that turned out to be the day after, posing with a graffitti chicken, singing Plan Three and My Passion songs (links further down) Failing miserably at singing, knocking down Therése with my chin, lying on the sidewalk for about an hour… posing on BMWs.. and finally.. actually getting home!
Michan fell asleep almost directly while me and Therése giggled… and giggled.. and giggled… feeling how everyone just got more and more mad… and then giggling because of that. But it was fun!

On the other hand, we were so tired saturday that we didn’t really do anything except get to the airport.. and the get home.. Haha we were woken up half an hours after check-out time at the hostel.. Pretty awkward..

Going home...

We will definately be back someday!

Berlin!

I’m on my way off to Berlin to see 30 Seconds to Mars (friday) in… 45 MINUTES! O_O
Downing a cup of soup right, now, packing meanwhile and being overall hysterical… (4 hours of sleep, a can of tuna for breakfast and a huuuge cup of coffee is not good for you)

Won’t be writing for four days or so, so long suckers! 😀

Listening to…

HURT

Going to study now.. that is, just write some shit down and send in and hopefully I’ll at least not fail the course. Found a test yesterday that I had no idea we were supposed to do, so did that without any studying before at all. But hopefully it went okay.

Trying not to think about all the fucking stuff I have to do. Three english assignments, find some articles for social sciences tomorrow, wash up and pack a bag for germany… E-mail my teacher… argh
But at least, I’m listening to good music. Doesn’t make me happy, but it’s beautiful.

Let me add…

That the best part of the Kings & Queens video is from 6:22min and forward…. ooooh yes, if anything of the album sounds like that I will be a very happy person indeed.
Time to watch it again…
Finally beginning to really look forward to Berlin.. It will be amazing!

Currently listening to: Kyokushin – Venetian Snares
😀

Done

Everything is booked!
Concert ticket, flights, hostel.. Berlin, here we come! 😀

Planning

These last few days (especially monday) I’ve been very busy planning some roadtrips for this fall. Ryanair nearly gave me nervous breakdown yesterday, haha. Booked tickets for about seven different people to three different places and the website insisted on giving me error messages. But in the end, everything worked out.

It’s unbelievable how focused and full of energy I get when I get to plan trips. I Love It! 😀
So now it’s decided, Michaela, Therése and I are going to Berlin in november (18th-21st) to see 30 Seconds to Mars at Astra (1.700 capacity), got tickets this morning. Everything’s booked except hostel, but we’ve found a really good one. Finally some luck regarding 30stm.

1st-5th december myself, Molly, Sanna and hopefully Elin will be heading town to Germany to see Black Stone Cherry opening for Motörhead. Flight tickets are booked, nothing else though haha. Thing is, none of us (I think) can afford both train tickets from town to town AND concert tickets… So we either need to get in for free, or a lift. But what the heck, we’ll worry about that later! Flight tickets were very cheap anyway 🙂

30 stm

So, last time I wrote I was waiting for a pre-sale of 30 Seconds to Mars tickets. It never happened. No pre-sale and the regular tickets sold out in 6minutes. I wasn’t one of the lucky ones. We (Me, Michaela, Therése aka Team Awesome) have now mostly decided not to go to London this time. Especially since we can get a refund for the flight tickets.

And THEN, the incredible thing happened. I was looking through my e-mail (today, oct 12) saw the Mars triangle and scrolled on thinking it was the news letter. The, scrolling back up I notice it’s sent from MLK (Mark Lieberberg Konzertagentur), announcing two concert dates in Germany!! Tickets have not gone on sale yet, and the flights are only 5€ for a return ticket 😀 So, hopefully better luck this time and we’ll get to see them in November! In quite a small venue as well, 1700 people. Awesome.

I seem to be doomed when it comes to seeing Fibes, Oh Fibes! though, since I’ll be in Germany that date. Clearly worth missing out on them though..
