The Road to France Mark your calendars for our triumphant return to KC at Davey’s Uptown next Wednesday, Nov. 14th. We’re sharing the bill with our good friends Paleface and new KC fave Folkicide. It’s gonna be a good one.

Week #2,3: Mannheim, Regensburg, Gunzenhausen, Tobel, Zurich, Wetzler, Darmstadt, Cologne, Bremen

Wow! Blau in Mannheim was really great. Nice little crowd. Great vegan restaurant accross the street. What more could you ask. Cool pic here by our pal Tommy who put us on there last time.
Some interesting graffiti/public art in Mannheim.
IMG_2648Next stop Regensburg where we get to play the first of two shows in a row with the great Jenny Lund. Wonderful to share the stage with these guys and see Driver Klaus in action on the bass. Stay tuned for the new Nan and Drummer Lud Dub side project with the first single Fleisch For Fantasy. The next night we also played with Jenny Lund in the beautiful town of Gunzenhausen. We were hosted by Markus of the great band Sutcliff at his bar Caymen. We had some very special cocktails (or as they call them in Germany “Long Drinks.”) So tasty, wish we could have drank them longer.IMG_2659Next stop, the beautiful and mysterious city of Tobel, Switzeland. We played at the Komteuri (an old prison, now converted into an arts space and Pilgram guesthouse.) Stay tuned for a possible summer festival in 2012. Here we also had the best stage design ever thanks to our freinds Tom and Ursina.IMG_2672After Tobel it was off to Zurich where I had so much fun I forgot to take a picture. So, here’s a picture of the shy cat of Tobel.IMG_2678Then it was back to Germany, where we were reunited with our great friends Sigmar and Michaela. We also got to meet their very happy turtle: Charlene.IMG_2709Darmstadt, was next where it was wonderful to see our good friends Woog Riots and Alex and Torsten of Mine. We were back at the Oetinger Villa. The backstage ceiling there was very trippy so I had to take photo. It kind of reminded me, a little, of an Arshile Gorky painting. IMG_2721Our old friend Thomas in Cologne now owns a bar called the Hanging Garden. We played a free show there that was really great. Here’s a pic of Thomas, Matt and Andy (driver) sporting their special sexy looks.IMG_2723And last night it was back in Bremen at the wonderful Spedition.Here’s our morning after shot.  IMG_2726And on that note we’ll leave you with this pic of Nan about to attack a large block of Gouda cheese. IMG_2730Thanks to everyone who has come out to see us. It’s been great. Looking forward to see you Oldenburg, Hannover, Hamburg, Nantes, Paris and UK!!!
XO, Nan and Matt.
