Leaving home, From Thy Ashes live in Sulzheim

First of all let me say that I arrived safely here in Constance. I spend the last ten days furnishing my new room, playing a gig with From Thy Ashes in Sulzheim (in the middle of nowhere) and meeting my fellow students on a three day excursion to the Black Forest.

The From Thy Ashes-concert was really funny, although the audience was somewhere in between lethargic and apparently dead. We played lots of new songs from the upcoming Amberland-album and they worked pretty good, even though we left out a complete chorus during “A Million Eyes” due to Daniel’s failing memory. For those who care, here are the songs we played:

  1. Placebo
  2. Harbinger
  3. Amberland
  4. Back in the Womb
  5. Locust Swarm
  6. Synchronicle
  7. Second Sight
  8. The Cocoon People
  9. Dancing Green Lizards
  10. The Mask You Wear
  11. A Million Eyes
  12. Eye-Con

The three days with about 80 aspiring psychologists was fun, too. It was neither boring nor chaotic. There were even some people who liked Roxette and one guy who had heard of From Thy Ashes before. And there was Nils who is the first person I know who upset sheep. You see, some folks were pretty crazy, but hey, we’re studying psychology!

Roxette live in Stuttgart, me live at home

Last night I saw Roxette live in Stuttgart. It was a great concert. On Sunday I played my first solo-gig! It was swell. Some people insisted on Monoton’s “Intelligenzkapazit√ɬ§t”. I had intended to play only English songs. Fortunately I remembered the lyrics even though I hadn’t rehearsed the song.
