Being on tour with good friends is awesome. We managed to do a small round with our old buddies from Razgruha and our new buddies from Indoctrinate. We played 4 cities in Greece and 1 show in Plovdiv.
Here’s a short tour diary + some Lomo shots:
Our first gig took place in the squat in Xanthi w/Chilean bands Anti Tanax & Perro Suicida. Great guys! We played outside and had a great crowd. Thanks to Ef & Kids From the Black Hole for this opportunity! I didn’t take any pictures on film that night, as it was already too dark before I thought about it. Anyway, here’s a picture from that show.
We went to Karditsa next, where we met Indoctrinate from Vienna for the first time. Karditsa has a special place in our hearts after we player Tera Troira last year. It’s amazing to see active DIY music scene in such a small city and we were glad to meet Christos and other cool guys from there. The gig took place right outside the squat and it felt really cozy.
We spent the night in the squat talking shit, snoring and fighting some enormous local bugs.
Next morning we had plenty of time to have some coffee and fool around before heading to Athens.
We arrived in Athens following a nice 3-hour drive. Our venue for the night was Black Box Studio where they have an actual studio, a place for small gigs and an amazing rooftop with a view. The gig turned out great, we had a great sound and lots of friends came by. All in all, it was about time we play an Athens show and we are certain this won’t be our last time there.
Mike from Friend of Gods was our host for the night, thank you for letting 10 weirdos shit in your house, mate! And thank you for the great coffee!
Next gig was in Larissa, but I was kinda tired and pissed off so I don’t think I bothered to get my camera out. We were glad to be back at Antidrastirio Squat and Studio Spirtokouto for the second time this year. The guys from the squat were very kind to us, and it’s great to see their passion for DIY music.
We had a long drive to Plovdiv the next day, and were this close to being too late for the show. Somehow we managed to arrive, set our shit like super fast and play what turned out to be the most crowded gig on this tour. A great atmosphere, amazing crowd and lots of old and new friends. This was a Prix libre show, like all the rest on this tour, but this is still not very popular in Bulgaria, so we were glad to see this as a total success for both the venue & us. Thanks to Nikola & ФОН for making this happen!
We didn’t want this night to end, we didn’t want this tour to end, so we wandered around Plovdiv until late. We slept at a nice hostel, but the staff was dumb as fuck. It was nice to have a proper shower tho.
The coffee at the hostel sucked, but they had a nice terrace where we met some Belgian travelers and a nice guy from Prague.
Packing our stuff and going home.
This was a great experience and we had loads of fun playing these shows. Thanks to all involved – you know who you are. We love you!
We can hardly wait to play Greece again, but now it’s time for our next big thing – our first bigger tour in Europe with Calf.
