Notes from das Boot 141
Tiring few days. After the Hamburg show which was good, there was an after show party DJ’d by Bobo our tour manager whose DJ name is “DJ Enemy of Comfort”. Our day off was a 17 hour drive from Hamburg to Vienna. Good show at the Arena there, usually the Arena is one of those places where the saying “if you smell weed, you will not succeed.” is an apt description but this show was great, everyone at the club was really on their game. After the show we had another long drive to the middle of nowhere. Cervia, Italy. Cervia is a summer resort town on the Adriatic sea. Cervia in the winter is kind of like a cross between Seaside Heights and Union Beach (this reference means nothing to anybody not familiar with the New Jersey, sorry. Just think “shitty beach town.”). We played the Rock Planet, it was pretty brutal but the people at the club were nice and the people who showed up dug it. We are now back in Germany which is kind of like home away from home, in some ways it’s better. We usually get well taken care of, the production is solid and the house crews are very good. Seven shows left.
