The Vaselines. Debaser, Stockholm.
Bonnie & Clyde. Opening act for the Vaselines. Debaser, Stockholm.
Saw Okkervil River last night at Debaser. To quote Christopher Eccleston “fantastic!” It made me happy — with the occasional sad spell — and the music… The music! This was…
It made me forget things in the headspace, briefly alas. The pause was needed. But really, I don’t care right now, I can’t care because if I do I’ll be a fucking wreak with bits of gob splattered all over. So this was great and I even think I smiled and laughed and just felt good.
It’s been a week now since I heard CALLmeKAT for the first time as the opening act for Okkervil River. During the week, it has been growing on me. Quite a lot actually. I wish I had bought her new CD. The music is very autumny.
In other news, still tired. 12 days on the road does that to you, but I would have loved to stay away even longer. The cold I got this sunday doesn’t help either. Damn it.
Yes, that is my hair. It gets like that.
I don’t drink that much coffee anymore. The odd cup at home and then lots of tea. Today though, it feels as if I had one cup too many. Of coffee. A stupid idea, but really, I think it might have some foundation in reality.
It’s a bit too warm I think. The snow melts slowly and drips from the branches of the trees. Calatch. Calatch. I managed to avoid getting some in my head. However, as the minutes stacked up like legos and the light crept back to hide under a dark blue blanket, the dripping began to stop. So I guess it’s colder now. Again.
Still, I probably should have gotten out a bit sooner though, but then the lights wouldn’t have been on.
Frida Hyvönen in the mp3-player, terrificv music. So it was rather pleasant and nice and calming anyway.
Unmade bed. Sleeping quarters. Kind of depressing.
So The White Moose, then. I Liked it quite a lot. Four people, guitar, drums, bas and organ and it was at times damn hard to stand still. (But I don’t dance.) Which sometimes interfered with the photography. Had I had a bit more money I would have bought the record on vinyl, but alas, I have to do that later.
Since I’m totally useless at selecting photos and discarding those that just have some small small flaw in a corner, I have a total of 60 uploaded shots from the gig in a set…
(And I must say, I really like the new camera. ISO 3200 on most of these and it’s still far better than the old one at 400.)
Spent a few hours drinking coffee at Gusto with Fredrik. At the beginning, there were quite a few people there but then it became less noisy. Considering the size of the place, this is a good thing. Crowds = very little room to breathe. We talked David Sedaris, photography, movies and things that possibly are illegal in at least five states — if not, they should be if you ask me (I’m not a big fan of the Wachowski Brothers, Bound being the exception).
Oh, and Neutral Milk Hotel’s In the Aeroplane Over the Sea on vinyl! Christmas is saved!
