  • Live impressions, 2013-12-18. Portorož – Tivoli Klub

    The seaside was a bit warmer than the foggy Ljubljana, but the christmasy streets of Portorož were nonetheless empty. But the more the day gave way to night the fuller the streets became and it looked like we were up for a great show. After a tasty dinner in a great ambient of Figarole we headed towards the Tivoli's backstage and got ready for the show. We were trying to figure out when was it that we actually last played in Portorož and finally came to a conclusion that it was obviously too long ago. Despite the late show the crowd went wild. We enjoyed the two-hours-plus show and it seemed like we could play a little more.

  • Live Impressions, 2013-12-14, Ljubljana – Gospodarsko Razstavišče

    It's been a while since we fully plugged ourselves in and we could barely wait for this evening to come. Rock n Roll at its best with our good friends from Tabu, Dan D and Muff. Great combination! Our hour and a half passed by too quickly and then we just let go. We mingled with our friends in front of the stage and enjoyed the music. It was really great. There should be more evening like this one. Hanging out with your friends  and the energy that followed you everywhere. We're only sorry for those lights being switched on too early. Friends, thank you for a wonderful evening!

  • LIVE IMPREISSIONS, 2013-10-25, MARIBOR – ŠTUK

    Whenever we book a gig in Maribor we get excited. Because we know that things will get wild, crazy and that the whole experience will be unforgettable. It is a simple fact that the ambience in Štuk has no competition. Ramiz and Štuk crew took excellent care of us, so we felt right at home. But you, our dear friends in the audience, you are the main reason why Siddharta loves to return to Maribor. A tidal wave of energy and love is unleashed with the first note of the intro and it doesn't stop until the very last one which resonates well into our trip back home. Štuk, see you in a year!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-09-21, SLOVENJ GRADEC – WILD WEST BEER FEST

    Another day, another gig. This time we headed East, towards Koroška. During the drive there we entertained ourselves with yet another cinematographic masterpiece and as it turned out our driver, Lovro, didn't drive any slower than the drivers who were too fast and too furious. Somewhat cloudy weather threatened to turn to rain which soaked us on both concerts in the recent past, but as it turned out it took nothing more but a sound check to clear those clouds off the sky. We headed to our host, Nikolas, and his restaurant Saloon where they just don't cease to amaze with their abnormal, almost murderous (but very tasty) portions of food. The only one who managed a pancake (1) at the end was Kraški, but as it turns out he would eat an elephant we he was given the chance, so … Well stuffed with various assortments of Mexican cuisine we rolled (rather than walked) back to the bus and headed back to the venue. First tones of our intro and the venue began filling up. The part exploded with full throttle and the stage soon became flaming hot. We premiered (un)acoustic version of Novi Svet (Keaziree) and received and amazing feedback. When we finished we left the stage to Vlado Kreslin and headed to the bus to refresh ourselves with a few beers. On the way back to Ljubljana we were accompanied by "The Dude" Lebowski even though most of us (still culinarily weighed down) sunk into a light sleep.
    Slovenj Gradec – you are always a pleasure! See you soon!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-09-20,KRANJ – LETNO GLEDALIŠČE KHISLSTEIN

    It was around 2PM when we started from Ljubljana and the short drive to Kranj went by in a blink of an eye. We stopped in front of ZAPORNICA that leads to old city center. It was here where we noticed a sign that clearly stated that only vehicles under 3,5 tons are allowed to cross the bridge. As we drove across it, it was Tisa's heart that stopped as she tightly held onto the seat in front of her, looking into the abyss below. We unloaded our equipment and headed to the venue. Summer Theatre Khislstein is a newly build amphitheatric venue which bathed us in the sun throughout the sound check. Shortly before dinner the organizers brought us the good news that the concert was completely sold out. As the doors opened the venue filled up quickly and soon it was time for us to hit the stage. Cold evening soon flared up and the amazing venue with an awesome crowd returned everything we put in; sparks of energy kept igniting till the very end when, shortly before 11 PM, almost in the middle of the night, we finished with Na Soncu.
    This truly amazing evening was over almost too quickly. A few words with friends and extremely kind organizers and then we headed back to Ljubljana.
    Kranj – thank you! You were – awesome!

    For the 10th anniversary of our cooperation with Symphony Orchestra RTV Slovenia we present you with our new song – Novi Svet (Keaziree). The song was recorded with Symphony Orchestra RTV SLO on June 17th and 18th this year on a sold out concert in Cankarjev dom. We both joined forces with Martin Janežič – Buco (percussions), Milko Lazar (arrangement for the orchestra) and Simon Krečič (conductor).

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-08-31, FRANKOLOVO

    The day started with us reminiscing over the previous, phenomenal night in Nova Gorica. But there wasn't much time to dwell on things past. We boarded the bus a few minutes after 2 PM and headed towards Frankolovo. The spirits were high, and the multiple-Oscar-winner Expendables 2 had a lot to do with it (our crew rarely disappoints with their diamond pick of cinematographic over achievements). But the cherry on top was (as it proved during the course of the day, evening and even during the night) the gift that was presented to our Melinda. The gift full of effects, plug-ins and AA batteries soon got its own slogan; let it shake, let it shake!

    At Frankolovo we were greeted by the sun, a huge venue and a little smaller speakers placed on a slightly tilted stage. But this didn't ruin our good mood. After the sound check we went to Turist restaurant where we also got a visit from Magic Aleksander. Looking at the cards and how fast they changed in front of our very eyes, we had no choice but to be deeply impressed by his incredible skills, while Jani kept repeating to himself "ten of hearts, ten of hearts, …"

    Soon the time to hit the stage came. And then it all started. Incredibly warm reception kept ascending to the very last note of Vojna Idej. The evening soon gave way to a damp and cold night and we warmed ourselves with a few cold ones and hung out by the bus with the organizers and friends who dropped by to see us.

    Comfortably tired we arrived to Ljubljana at 4 AM and then slowly dispersed towards our homes.

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-08-24, RUŠE – LETNI ODER

    Despite the weather forecast predicting a ton of rain we set from Ljubljana with positive energy and headed towards Ruše. Letni Oder was ready and we didn't want to disappoint. While on the way, half of our crew were passed out (some of them were literally left without their voices) due to a stag party they had for our Franky the night before. However their work was as professional as always.

    This was the first time we were in Ruše and thus the first time on Letni Oder. This is a phenomenal amphitheater-like venue set at the edge of a forest. The setting inspired us immediately. After the sound check we left for a dinner in Hotel Veter / Hostel Vetrnica, where they spoiled us with an apartment with a terrace and jacuzzi. The organizers at KURS really went out of their way for us and we are deeply thankful to them.

    The venue filled up in the meantime and we could hardly wait to go on stage. We performed an acoustic set and debuted two songs in acoustic form; Neznano and Kloner. The temperature was slowly rising and by the end it got really  hot in front of the stage. The 19 songs went by a bit too quick.

    We enjoyed every second of the show . Thank you, dear friends!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-07-20, MORAVSKE TOPLICE, TERME 3000

    Where to go in this heat? To the pool, of course. We went to Terme 3000. And what's even better? A hefty dose of rock n roll! You don't have to say these two things in the same sentence twice to us. Almost 2 hours of rumbling. Even electricity ran out of power for a short while so all four of us stormed Boke's drum set and beat the shit out of it (maybe one of you recorded this and put it on YT). We noticed a few of our friends from Poland in the front rows who joined into the screaming of an awesome crowd. We had a great time and we'd like to thank all of you for a great evening and also thank Terme 3000 for their hospitality!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-06-29, VRANSKO – VRANSKO SUMMER NIGHT

    We had an honor to be invited as the main band to the traditional Vransko Summer Night. This was the first time we played in Vransko and also the first time we played on this festival. We felt a certain amount of responsibility which is never a bad thing, more the opposite. Aleksander, the head of the festival, really came through for us. A huge stage, excellent catering, kind staff and hanging out with our friends from other performing acts. And especially the crowd … I really don't know what were we thinking by not coming here sooner. The venue was exploding with energy and we enjoyed every minute of the show. Vransko, great festival and you have a great Alex! We'd love to play your town again if only you're up to it!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-06-22, BITNJE PRI KRANJU, NOČ V BITNJAH

    Here we are, back in Bitnje again. This was a 5th show in 8 days and we haven't had that happen in quite a while. Maybe some of us were a bit tired, mostly due to the lack of sleep from the night before, but we managed. As soon as we came to the venue we were delighted to see what an incredible step forward the festival has made in these few years. As far as the organization of the whole went everything was tip-top and on a really high level, the "street" in the backstage was awesome, we could hang out with other bands and listen to the ones currently performing. During our lunch/dinner in Strahinc restaurant we came face to face with the most in-your-face waitress ever (maybe this will develop into some sort of competition now :) ). After Zablujena Generacija our crew set the stage and it approx. 10 PM it was our turn to hit the stage. Tisa let the intro roll. The whole day was inclining that this will turn out to be one hell of a gig and it was exactly just that. We felt great on the stage. The energy between us and the audience was jumping throughout the concert. Hat's off, once again to all involved, for bringing us such a wonderful night!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-06-21, ŠENTVIŠKA GORA – GORA ROCKA

    A few turns outside of Ljubljana (mostly left and right ones, although we couldn't shake this feeling that we invented a few new ones) and we were greeted by a picturesque venue on Šentviška Gora above Tolmin. The cool breeze from the forest and fresh air tried to keep the heat at bay on this longest day in the year. The kind organizers made sure we felt right at home. We met a few friends, drank a few beers and at 11:35 went on stage. The electricity proved not to be a close friend of ours on this day, but we wouldn't give up. And neither would the audience. We ploughed through a 90 minute set and came to a firm conclusion that Gora Rocka deserves a more prominent place on Slovenian map of festivals. We had a really good time!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-06-17 & 18, LJUBLJANA – CANKARJEV DOM

    Creative nervousness, dry mouth, a slightly disoriented eyes, tiptoeing  on a spot and always reassuring and calming closeness of other band members. It is 8 PM and it's time to walk out on stage in front of sold-out Gallus hall in Cankarjev dom. First time here, the third time together with Symphonic orchestra. The orchestra is on stage, in tune. I feel their grandiose-ness. We walk out on stage together with Simon, shake hands with 1st violin and then Siddharta… The show is developing, running more smoothly than on any of the rehearsals. We are doing it … This is insane!!! Just look at all these faces in the audience, all these friends, that are just letting go to the music and energy. Look at this orchestra behind me, Simon, who is glowing and sovereignly leads this convoy, look at all our guests, who are causing all these goose-bumps and look at all my troopers in the first line of battle… infinite love and harmony! AAAaaaAaaaaAAa!!!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-06-14, MARIBOR – PIŠE SE LETO

    What can we actually write? That Piše se Leto concert is one of the main reasons, beside an awesome crowd of fans, why we love coming back to Maribor? That these very same fans push the limits of possible at this exact same concert? That we are treated like kings by the organizer year after year? That it's getting better year after year? That this one differed from the past ones because we missed Smiljan's smile in the backstage and found a new one, that of his son, Luka? Sure, we could write all that, no doubt about it. But even if we would … in extensive detail, we would never come even close to the adrenaline that lifts us here in Maribor. And before we get tangled: Maribor, thank you! From the bottom of our hearts … into your enormous heart, that you open to us every time we visit! We had to write something, but a simple fact is that you left us speechless.

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-05-31, SLOVENJ GRADEC - SALOON

    Let's first clear a few adrenaline fueled twists and turns in this thrilling story: it all began in rain, continued more or less in the same manner and ended pretty much like it, too. Surprisingly little time passed between the first load-in and load-out and no intellectual strain was required to find the culprit; our bus driver, who speeded through corners like his life depended on it. Or as Tomi put it: "It's all straight-forward to him." Before soundcheck two of our crew members got acquainted with Saloon's small pizza. The majority of the people present at the table got well-fed with this "small" but tasty specimen of culinary species. The damned thing measured over 55 cm in diameter and was not exactly the thinnest of its kind. After the soundcheck we ended up (believe it or not) back in the Saloon's restaurant where the dinner was being served. In the meanwhile a local band Can of Bees was warming up the first arrivals. They were followed by somewhat "unusual" dance performance. And then the lights went down, Tisa played our intro and then:

    After the show we freshened ourselves up on the bus while our crew loaded our gear, this was followed by another break-neck-speed drive back home, which provided us with a few interesting anecdotes, but they might be more suitable for another occasion.

    Dear korošice and korošci! We salute each and every one of you who stood there and/or jumped around in the rain for those two hours. This was the second time that you came out to see us in such a dreary weather. But this was also the second time that you clearly showed us that there is no stopping you. And this is why that the next we come back to your part of the woods again it won't be on 31st but on 13th!

    Until then – thank you & see ya! You were incredible!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-05-01, ZELENI GAJ

    Our Studio 13 welcomed us in an early-afternoon sun and before it knew what hit it we emptied it and loaded our gear onto the bus. The mandatory (almost ritualistic) wait for certain someones to appear, who also again and again serve us with creative choice of apologies why it is totally impossible for them to be on time, resulted in an over-all good spirits as we hit the road and headed towards Zeleni Gaj. Up until this day we were fairly certain that zombies only existed in comic books, novels, movies and TV series, but just before we reached our destination we had to admit how horribly wrong we were. It was a solitary specimen who was lucky that Michonne wasn't around. We unloaded the gear, "refreshed" ourselves and did the sound check. The specifics of the venue caused quite some problems to our Tisa, but she overcame them like a hefe. On our way to dinner our main concern wasn't the food, but football. Do they have a TV set? Will we be able to watch the match? Even if the do have the TV set – do they have the right channels? Will we need to dig them? Well, the TV wasn't there, but the kind hosts at Lisjak went out of their way to indulge us. The whole family stepped up and made sure we were taken care of and in the meanwhile the produced the cables, moved some chairs around and - ta–daaa. They prepared as regular open-air cinema with the match being projected on the wall. The game was more or less in a stop-motion technique (the ads ran a smooth as they come, though). But that wasn't everything; an amazing wine and home cooking quite literally anchored most of us down. And the kindness of hosts was just never ending. While Bayern was literally killing Barcelona (who did some of the same killing themselves) the minutes rushed by and we had to head back to the venue. As soon as we hit the stage we knew we didn't come back for nothing after all this time. The energy of the fans literally electrified the stage and returned it with full force. Working on May 1st turned out to be an immense joy. And the promise stays; we will be back sooner than in 10 years! Thank you!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-03-29, ZAGREB - KSET

    When we arrived Zagreb showered us with early April rain, so we headed straight for the club KSET, right after some snacks that we fixed ourselves on the bus. In the club the local crew was kind enough to helped us with the load-in and other technicalities.

    On this day the atmosphere was a bit different than on the rest of the days. On the last day of the tour the whole crew is in a unique mental state; symbiosis of joy over the fact that we are heading home and longing after the fact that we could tour some more, at least for as long as we just did. At the same time the whole day smells of an unforgettable, energy-fueled evening into which we must give our everything. We did so for the last ten days with the greatest of pleasure. Together with diligent Duši and Darjan, who brought – beside their muscles and patience – a whole lot of good will to the table; with Eva, who earned her way back home with an extraordinary sales; with Tisa, who managed to overcome almost everything, from top-notch sound systems to the situations when she wished she could be a speaker herself; with Vido, who managed to light up the venues no matter how difficult the technicalities proved themselves to be (if nothing else he did it with his wits); with Andraž, who yet again proved himself to be an extraordinary coordinator and tour manager and more than sometimes a catalyst for some lonely specimens of implicitly high strung nerves within the group, ensuring its smooth internal functioning. And last but not least; with Christian who, after thousands of kilometers of potholes, peacefully and kindly drove from venue to venue. All this was of course closely monitored from afar by our dear management team; from Melinda, Sašo and Satch to Andrej, who came (with our better halves) to an absolutely unforgettable evening in Zagreb.

    Fully packed and sold out club KSET almost collapsed during the show. This is of course due to the extremely positive energy and the excitement that you channeled straight to us onto the stage. In the meantime it was raining outside.
    Thank you, dear friends from Zagreb, for your devoted and warm support!

    The road to Ljubljana was filled with memories of the last ten days and  full of expectations because at the end of this tour we are finally moving into out new rock n' roll headquarters. At this moment we lack nothing but a fair start of the spring!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-03-28, BUDAPEST - R33

    The temperatures finally got above zero! We arrived with sunshine in front of a relatively new club, which reminded us a bit of our Metlekova. Even the technology required quite a few of our improvisational skills. Sometime one has to imagine a piece of hardware so one can calibrate oneself into a demanding situation. But, at the end of the day; "it's only fuckin' rock n' roll" and everything works just fine. The locals prepared some sort of a stew after the sound check. When we were done with the intaking of the nutritionalities (another one of Tisa's new words), we each assumed horizontal positions on the bus, waiting for the late start of our show. Outside it was still snowing. The female part of the crew managed to finish off  the chocolate candies, that we had since the beginning of the tour. Eva managed to chocolate herself sick. She was extremely diligent on this tour and had to have a new package of merchandise delivered from Ljubljana because she sold all of the rest (if she wouldn't she wouldn't be allowed home anyway).

    The clock struck 11 PM and we hit the stage as loud as we could. And the Hungarian audience was just as loud, screaming their support. Thank you, Budapest, we had a really nice time! We have to move on and soon we'll be home. Ahead of us is the last gig of the tour, Zagreb.

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 203-03-27, BIELSKO-BIALA – RUDEBOY CLUB

    We bid our farewell to Poland in an unforgettable way. The most beautiful gift that we received was and exceptional energy, which we won't forget that easily. The candy will be gone, beer and sour-cherry vodka also, but the memories of this evening will stay with us at least until we come back! Thank you for your throats at Ring and for another sit-down during Samo Edini. Thank you also to both groups who warmed up the audience. With everything going on we were left speechless. We spent the night at the club with some music from the 90ies. And in the meanwhile – outside the snow kept falling.

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-03-26, POZNAN – KLUB U BAZYLA

    The night trip to Bzayla club was nothing short of a battle that didn't end until 11 AM. The bus was skipping and jumping over the pot holes and our backs desperately tried to stay as close to our beds as possible. At the end we were greeted by Ljubljana-cold and beautiful Poznan sun, which made our tour manager Andraž sing;  “Jst ne morem več na busu živet, jst bi hotu na kavo, jst bi hotu met svoj skret…”

    But the battle took its toll; Primož woke up with a broken toe, Tomi's hand was in pain, Tomaž's shoulder is FUBAR as it is and the rest of us would gladly just leave our backs at the massage parlor for the whole day. No, we're not old. We'll just blame it on the roads.

    The locals prepared some strong coffee as we plowed through the sound check and the left the stage to an upbeat group Envia. We proceeded towards a steak house to get some vegetables and proteins. Not necessarily in that order. Outside, believe it or not, it was still snowing. Poznan is a very nice town and we wanted to see it such as it was; moon-lit. The moon's effect was, accruing to Jani, extremely positive and despite the obvious tendencies towards disability throughout the group we gave it all our best as we plowed through the setlist for our Polish fans. They surprised us with more gifts after the show; different kinds of beer and special edition t-shirts.

    Thank you, Poznan, for beautiful energy and an exquisite evening!

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-03-24, KRAKOW – KLUB STUDENCKI KWADRAT

    Luckily the bus somehow managed the bouncy roads to Krakow, right up to the parking lot in front of the club where it dramatically broke down. Before this the toilets froze due to the –20 degrees Celsius. Maybe we're just being too mean to it and now it's holding a grudge. Dear tour bus, from now on we will be kind to you… It's a good thing tomorrow's a day off.

    This time around the backstage greeted us with a fair share of uncooked vegetables. Klub Kwadrat hosted almost an infinite number of interesting names, Gabage being one of them, this fact gave Tomaž a "brilliant" idea that he has the honor of showering in the same showers as their singer. Wow! Just wow! Girls from the opening act group Brain's All Gone, who are known from some Polish music TV show warmed up the stage and the crowd in their own punk-ish way. Outside, believe it or not, it was still snowing. We could hardly wait to unleash the thunder over the waiting audience who are chanting our name even before we step on the stage. And so we went through two hours of amazing energy flowing from us to the grateful audience and right back. Thank you Krakow, you have also been awesomely insatiable!

    Duši and Darjan packed our gear back onto the already repaired bus. We drove across the city, where we plan to spend tomorrow's "day off".

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-03-23, WARSAW – PROXIMA

    Well massaged from a long and not the most comfortable drive we awoke into a beautiful, sunny and cold morning. It took quite a bit of courage for us to go for a walk through the student campus, where the club is situated. No ice skates were used even though the ground was frozen solid.

    In the afternoon we entered a really nice concert venue with a bit of Spinal-tap-is backstage. At that time we had no idea of what we are in for on this beautiful day. The evening crept upon us with a blistering speed and proved itself so amazing that it seems nonsensical to lose words on the dinner and cooked pickled cucumbers.

    The third concert of the tour couldn't possibly end on a higher level or with a better atmosphere. Those who were there, and there were more than a few, know exactly what we are talking about. Together we knitted an evening of immense atmosphere, jumping to the ceiling, picking out the songs (the ones that are missing from the playlist that proves every day to be too short), technical exceptionalititties (Tisa loves to make up new words) and another simultaneous sit-down during our most balladest ballad. This amazing evening needed to be documented even by Boštjan who "helped" our light designer Vido with constant flashing of his phone while playing drums. It's a good thing he has two hands. And it's an even better thing that Vido doesn't lack sense of humor, also.

    Dear fans, we know that we said this yesterday during our show, but we need to do it again: Thank you and our deepest respect! We WILL be back. As long as you are there, so will be we!

    We prolonged this beautiful evening with a party on our night-liner, where we ate too much Smoki, listened to the right amount of good music and didn't drink enough water. The road took us towards Krakow. Outside the snow continues to fall.

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-03-23, WROCLAW – KLUB MADNESS

    After arriving to Wroclaw some of us took up the opportunity of relaxing with an anti-stress therapy in the pools and saunas of a wellness center. And we finally managed to get our hands on some coffee grains for out top-notch expresso machine so we can wake up easily after the bouncy nights on Polish roads. In Madness club, which was almost torn apart by the Polish audience the last October, the soundcheck (BTW – Primož can pull off the entire drum-check) got extensively prolonged due to technical difficulties (not Primož's fault).But it all played out well at the end and the locals served us with much anticipated specialty, Pirogi. Outside it was – still snowing.

    At 9 PM we hit the stage with full force. The audience exploded and later we witnessed the first-ever spontaneous sit-down of everyone in attendance during the first notes of Samo Edini. This time even Tomi had to follow this charismatic stunt of the audience. Great moments, filled with laugh-out-loud rock n' roll silliness, brought a few extra songs in otherwise locked playlist. The audience couldn't get enough.

    After hanging out with fans and loading the equipment in extreme cold we headed off into the night … And towards Warsaw.

  • LIVE IMPRESSIONS, 2013-03-21, DRESDEN – REITHALLE

    We started towards Dresden good spirited and totally knackered from rearranging  our new rehearsal place with a collective goal of getting some rest. Given the suspicious "springy" smell that was present in Ljubljana, we could expect nothing less than cold and snow throughout the entire trip. :) Well, this time around the winter proves to be a bit too long and the tour bus a bit too short. We had to cram ourselves in our little hostel on wheels like potato in Polish Pirogi. We are sure we'll get used to it by the time we get to Zagreb just as we are sure that we won't be as cold as we are at the moment.

    We couldn't go sightseeing in this exceptional German city as much as we did the last time around because we got blown right back on the bus by gushes of cold wind. And we didn't get off until the club opened and we warmed our frozen limbs under warm showers in the biggest backstage ever. Outside it kept snowing. Soundcheck went by and we had some time until dinner so we amused ourselves picturing the same little group of people from the previous gig, each of them placed in their carefully chosen spot.

    The reality was quite different once we hit the stage: amazing turnout by the audience who awarded us with "Zugabe!" and a phenomenal energy.
    Thank you, Dresden!

    Now let's see what Wroclaw will bring, beside the Polish Pirogi, of course. :)

  • 2013-03-09, LIVE IMPRESSIONS, KRANJSKA GORA, Q-MAX PARTY

    The day started in Ljubljana with us leaving the old rehearsal place for the last time. Meanwhile the new one is in its final stages of construction. We headed for Kranjska Gora and arrived there early even though we were late leaving Ljubljana. The organizers made sure that everything ran smoothly the whole time. And as far as their efforts are concerned we can only congratulate them for their professionality and kindness. The weather was slaloming its way between drizzle and rain with a few stops in between. After the soundcheck we went for a walk through Kranjska Gora, stopped for a cup of coffee and then headed for lunch. After lunch some of us hit the beds and couches in the nearby apartment. We didn't even properly close our eyes when they yanked us out and escorted us back to the venue. There Elvis Jackson just finished their set and everyone was getting ready for the draw of start numbers for tomorrow's slalom run. Then it was our turn. Kranjska Gora never let us down. And you kept to that tradition. After an hour and a half long set we handed the stage over to Sausages, while we made sure the party didn't end too soon. Kranjska Gora; you were great!!!

Live impressions, 2013-12-18. Portorož – Tivoli Klub

| 68 pictures

The seaside was a bit warmer than the foggy Ljubljana, but the christmasy streets of Portorož were nonetheless empty. But the more the day gave way to night the fuller the streets became and it looked like we were up for a great show. After a tasty dinner in a great ambient of Figarole we headed towards the Tivoli's backstage and got ready for the show. We were trying to figure out when was it that we actually last played in Portorož and finally came to a conclusion that it was obviously too long ago. Despite the late show the crowd went wild. We enjoyed the two-hours-plus show and it seemed like we could play a little more.
