mile me deaf played a great show at the Sub in Graz yesterday. there were 2 other bands as well, the painted beehive and the decibelles from lyon. both played great shows, the decibelles had a cute french accent, but i didnt shoot any photos because of.. well, lets just blame some foreigners. yes, its becaus of them, they stole my motivation, my camera, my ability to focus properly and what not. so please enjoy those blurry, noisy, out of focus shots of that great show.

having a knee problem sucks. having a knee problem when the first warm and sunny days of spring are coming up pretty much compares to being kidnapped and forced to sleep with your mom while your dad is watching. think about that for a while, then go on reading this blog update.
done? done thinking about your mom? okay.
talking about your mom, here is herwig. herwig is old and grumpy, but beautiful on the inside (see, like mommy.) here he is sliding a 100km/h bs lipslide. yes!

shortly after the first spot, it started to rain. so we went and got some wonderful Estrella and wandered the streets of Badalona, looking for spots. and food. we did find spots, but goddamn it, spanish people dont like to work on rainy days. after what felt like walking all the way to great britain on foot, we decided to just buy noodles at a supermarket and cook them at the hostel.
where we decided to order pizza.
have you tried ordering pizza without speaking Catalan? its fun. you yell some english words at your phone, some old guy yells something in catalan, and after 30 minutes of wondering if our order actually came through the pizza arrived. yay.

shot this amazing show yesterday, check out my gallery at Noisey!
more shots will follow on here soon.
yesterday was a good day. the amazing Ants! opened for the even more amazing RVIVR, one of the top 3 bands on this planet right now. listen to them here, or keep on blowing it. the show was amazing, as expected, the MusicHouse was packed, as expected. But hey, for once, i would like to add a little bit of criticism here: i am somewhat confused as to the reaction of people to crowdsurfing and dancing. yes, i do not like that too, especially since half of the time i am around it with a months salary of camera equipment, but goddamn, if you want everybody standing around and mindlessly staring into the void just go to a Helene Fischer concert. its amazing that there are people who preach tolerance and acceptance yet throw fuck you fingers and start being aggressive if somebody doesnt exactly behave the way they want it to. this of course also goes out to the people that somehow think that everybody would want their sweaty ass in their face. dance, have fun, but if you are a 2m guy try not to fall on that girl half your size. congrats to RVIVR for being mediators in this scenario.
now, enjoy the pictures, listen to the bands, buy their stuff. they deserve it.

after a lazy sunday, theres nothing better to start off the week than being tired because you went to a concert. luckily, this time it was only 2 bands and 45 minutes delay, so yeah, theres that. first off were “A Frame of a Life” with an acoustic set. didnt get to catch a picture, sorry you two. they used a guitar as a drum sometimes, which for me is the equivalent of people dancing to Helene Fischer: its highly confusing. but the show was nice, good voices, maybe a little too slow for me but hey, i am not exactly a music critic anyway.
next up were some guys that i have hoped to see live for some time now: Arliss Nancy! all those fancy beards, tattoos and beanies gave me high expectations, looking good is crucial for sounding good. i think. the show was great, they smoked cigarettes, drank beer, i shot some photos, they suck, (i mean i suck, these guys rule). if you get the chance, go see them live and buy some of their stuff.
thanks to everyone organizing this, it was a great evening. now enough with the mindless rambling, photo-time.

every now and then it happens that incredibly good bands get sucked into the hole known as “Music-House Graz“. and when that happens, its best to show up there.
the latest victims were the superheroes of The Fleshtones (they have their own wikipedia entry, by the way.)
if you knew them before, you knew what was coming up. if you didnt, you fell in love with them. this is how rocknroll stars should grow old – with power, passion and sheer neverending love for music.
the supporting band, Lory Lee and the Flashback Boys, were amazing as well, but i failed to take pictures. yep, i am that good.
anyway, no more boring words, heres the pictures. the show was incredible, if you have the chance to see them, SEE THEM.

found a oldish pic of Herwig. re-edited it. now i like it.
so, this is in fact a rather long post actually. but about the new miniramp at the skatehall. see what i did there? i made a joke with mini, but it wasn´t what you thought it would be. i am smart like a fox.
anyway, the pictures are kinda random, so please take everything about it seriously and hate me if you dont like that. also, i didnt care about flashes being in the pics, so suck it again. and its all fisheye with boring angles, so suck it even more.
Luki Kro, handplant grab transfer on the spine thingy, no idea how to call it. goddamn kids and their weird tricks.
