Notes From Das Boot 30

Mister Lady

Mister Lady

6/22/09 Krefeld, Germany
Whenever I thought of progressive european countries I would think of Sweden or Denmark, not so much Germany. Until now, as far as I know Mister Lady is the first trans-gender clothing store chain. Today we’re playing an old slaughterhouse, which is next to the new slaughterhouse in Krefeld’s extensive slaughterhouse district. In fact the city’s slogan is “If it can be slaughtered, bring it to Krefeld”, I’m sure in it’s original german it sounds much more poetic. The house lighting guy speaks little or no english, just as good as my german (which consists of “nein” “einsturzende Neubauten” and “Himmler”). So tonight’s lights might be flashlights on stage or a garbage can fire.
