We saw 17 Hippies at the Lindenpark, Babelsberg last night. They (13 on this occasion) were on fine form and both they and the audience enjoyed themselves. I'd not been to the venue before even though it is only a 20 minute walk from our apartment. It is a nice size and had good acoustics and I'm sure we'll go to other events there.
The 17 Hippies are touring and promoting their latest album, "Kirschenzeit" and have a number of dates to play still in Germany and France before ending the tour on New Year's Eve in Berlin. I picked up a CD and an LP of their new album after the concert (a couple of band members joined the staff selling the album and I chatted for a short while with the bass player) and I am playing a ripped version at the moment.
The last week has been a busy one for live music for me, as Mischa and I were helping out with the photography for the Lancaster Music Festival. Between the launch party last Wednesday and late Sunday night, I think we covered about 22 performances and a few buskers and street performers. There were 40 or so venues, ranging from tiny corners in pubs and cafes to big stages and we didn't get to as many as half of them. Great fun but r-e-a-l-l-y tiring!

Me (and the boy) had a great time at Jinjer. Good vibe at the gig, cool venue - Heaven nightclub. Very heavy, but some good moments of light and shade too ... Pretty intense lighting FX at times as well which was kind of fun.
