Saturday was reserved for Ljubno ob Savinji's Flosfest 2014. Still a bit tired from the previous night we hit the road just as this enormous storm hit Ljubljana. If we managed to avoid rain on Friday it was very clear that this will not be the case on Saturday. We were all relieved when we heard that the venue was covered with a tent roof. Although the venue still required some skill from our driver, Dušan, to get our gear as close to the stage as possible. The sound check was effective ans super quick due to excellent system and crew that managed it. After the sound check we were taken by the organizers, Klub zgornjesavskih študnetov (hat's off to this year's execution of the festival!) to dinner in hotel Planinka. There, their boss Helena made sure that we got almost "offed" by all the culinary goods. :) Then we (almost) rolled back to the stage. Well, the desert came in the shape of the concert. Two hours of rock n roll and really loud audience proved to me more than just the cherry on top of the cake. Great job, Flosfest, great job!
A few weeks have passed since our last gig, which only added to the anticipation for this weekend's double bill. On Friday we headed to Moškanjci near Ptuj and Top Rock festival. We arrived in the afternoon and did the sound check. Jani to a ride with a wicked cruiser while above our heads the airplanes did their own tricks. Great atmosphere and devoted organizers. This was followed by dinner and hanging out with some friends of ours. At 11 PM our intro filled the venue and rock n' roll trip began. The great atmosphere from the afternoon reappeared and we enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. Adter the concert we hung out with our fans, gave a few autographs, drank a few beers with the organizers and then slowly headed back home.
Upon our arrival at the venue in early afternoon the clouds covered the skies and tried to threaten with rain but they couldn't match the positive energy among us. The organizer, Alex, took care of us with a great care. Right after the sound check he tried to "off" us with exceptional late lunch and that's why we took off in a hurry to the nearest pub to "up" ourselves with some coffee and a mandatory football match. When we returned to the venue other bands were already warming up the crowd. The concert flew by too quickly and we could easily drop another half an hour worth of songs. We ended this great evening with some friends, other bands and Alex, watch a couple of other performances and the headed to Ljubljana. Thank you Vransko! Thank you Alex! Undoubtedly another unforgettable "Summer night"!
After the acoustic concert in Maribor we switched our instruments and plugged them in for a gig in Murska Sobota. It's been six years since our last concert, damn it. Idyllic park near a castle and the kindness of hosts … How could we not be happy? After the sound check we hung out with out friends Orlek, watched the mandatory football match and then headed to Hotel Diana for lunch. At 10 PM we hit the stage and shook Murska Sobota. We enjoyed the gig so much it was over in a blink of an eye. After the concert we took some photos with our fans and then slowly headed back home.
Lent, main stage and acoustic … This combination was on our to-do list for quite some time. On Saturday this wish came true and Maribor delivered a magical evening. A feast at Leon's, moon-lit Drava river and full auditorium indulged us through out the concert and we were more than glad to return the warmth. Girls from Pandora – Art of Pole dance group graciously provided the proverbial cherry on top with their soft and gracious interpretation of two of our songs. A concert to remember!
