European Tour Blog - Day 11 - I Can’t Believe It’s Not Day 4
Picking up where we left off, the next show was in Bordeaux, France and was the best yet. Until that night I had never seen what 5,000 people look like from a stage (see above). Let me tell you, they look really really really nice. That was our second and final show in France and it was amazing. It was outdoor, the sun was setting, and I don’t know if I mentioned it before but there were five thousand people there, so…
The following day we drove eight hours towards Germany and got a cheap hotel for the night. Our search for dinner was fruitless, as the only place we could find was Le Hangar which turned out to be some sort of locals only salsa club. My French is getting better but I keep forgetting to look up some crucial stuff like “are you open” and “are you still serving food.”
I didn’t sleep much that night. When it became clear that my eyelids wouldn’t stay shut, I watching a French version of I Love The 80’s marathon (it included a lot of Madonna videos).
The next day we made it to Munster, Germany and started setting up for a show at the Kunstakademie Munster, which I learned was an art school full of pretty cool individuals. The show was free and refreshments included waffles and beer. My kind of party. The next morning we had breakfast with Charlotte, who organized the whole show and gave us a place to sleep. I ate my weight in bread, cheese, and strawberry jam. My kind of breakfast.
It’s so crazy that my jam breakfast was just this morning. We’ve already driven to Bonn, Germany and played a whole other show with Lou Reed. It was so nice to join back up with the band again.
Turns out they’re all super fun. Turns out it’s cool to get to be part of such a talented band. Turns out I have a big collective crush on all of them.
Anyway, time for bed. Tomorrow morning we wake up early, eat a hotel breakfast, and head to Dresden. See you there?
