What a great night we had yesterday. Stefano, Elena, Vale and I went to see Easy Cure
, THE Italian Cure cover band, and they were brilliant as usual. I've seen them a few times, last night must have been the 7th concert or something, and it's always a pleasure. During "A forest" a little wave of nostalgia hit me, that was the first song I've ever learned to play on the bass after all. *sigh*
After them a Depeche Mode cover band played, a replacement of the band that was supposed to play. They were good too, but it's difficult to live up to Dave Gahan's fantastic voice and stage antics. And gorgeousness.
After the concerts we stayed and danced, the DJ started out with '80s music, then rock, electro and indie. Oh, it had been so long since I'd heard "Du hast" and "Hey girl, hey boy" in a club. At one point, just after the gigs, I turned around... and saw a guy wearing a Rock'n'Roll Realschule T-shirt!
I got all excited and was like "OMGOMGOMG he's wearing an Ärzte T-shirt AAAH!" Elena said I should "socialise", so I grabbed her and walked up to him. I tapped him on the shoulder and asked him if he knew Die Ärzte, but he shook his head and looked at me as if he had no idea what I was talking about. I thought he hadn't heard me - the music was
quite loud - and I repeated "Die Ärzte, the band on your T-shirt." But he just said "No, I bought it years ago, just because." I really didn't know how to carry on the conversation at that point, so I just said "Ah, OK," gave him a thumbs up and walked back to Vale and Ste. Vale of course told me "WHAT? You left? You should have hit on him!" Bah. I don't make passes at people in clubs, last time I did... Uhm. Whatever.
Anyway! I booked the hostel in Hamburg and I'm really happy about it! Yes! I still haven't decided if I'm gonna wait till December and buy the FURT album in Hamburg or if I'm going to buy it online. I may end up buying it together with the DÄ calendar next week.
Also, today I got up around 12:30 (man, I'm not used to going to sleep at 4:30 AM anymore) and had a wonderful brunch that filled me with joy. Freshly made orange juice, cappuccino, a banana and my favourite bread (rye flour + sunflower and sesame seeds) with butter and brown sugar on it. I used to eat bread with butter and sugar on holiday when I was younger, and that contributed greatly to today's good mood.
So, yes, a positive entry. There have been too little of those in my LJ lately.
