We’re in Hamburg today, just finished the Rock am Ring and Rock im Park festivals. Words can’t describe how exciting it was to be on that stage. The crowd was amazing! We didn’t want to end the show. The first night acoustically was tough cause we played in a massive tent, with high ceiling, not ideal for the live show sound. Plus, it was hard to hear ourselves on stage, so you have to focus harder on your playing and singing, etc. It’s the best when you can forget about what your doing and just feel the music. I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s true, there’s something about letting go that really puts you in the moment. As a foreign band to Germany, we were so happy to get such a warm response and have so many people watch us play. There are lots of bands on the festival, lots of competition, so you never know how the turn out will be. The room was packed and everyone was working with us. I have some footage from the stage, which we’re planning on using in our tour DVD. Yes, that’s right, we’re making a tour DVD, better believe it girl. Now we have 4 days off before the next festival in Sweden. I’ve never been to Sweden and can’t wait, all of us can’t wait. We have this time off to enjoy Europe, our European vacation. Hamburg is a great city and we’re lucky to have this time off here. I can see the city from the hotel window, I should probably get out of this room and off the internet to explore. Talk to you all later.
