Alligator and I rocked the houses. Our set list:
1. Quiz (new song)
2. If You are What You Eat
4. Love was a River
5. In Us We Trust
For all of you who bought the cd: none of these songs are yet released! So–you bought “Blasted!” my most recent release! Stay tuned for the new one–it’s pretty much DONE, just looking for it’s way out of the birth canal!
Back to the tour:
Amsterdam was first—(Alligator wants to move there)
Then— Frankfurt! The venue was hot as a summer in hell and the company (the audience, Jay, the sound dude) made it totally worth sweating through. We met up with our tour manager, Lisa, and the German adventure began!
Here’s the dressing room:
This was us playing in Koln:
Jay sang so beautifully. I backed him up on “Goddamned” and “Everywhere there’s Statues” and some nights “Half Boyfriend”
Hamburg was super fun. We met up with the agency that booked the tour— http://www.x-why-z.eu/home had some Schnizel, had some Spazl—is this the right word? The doughy goodness fried with onions and cheese?
Berlin was also kinda mind-blowing! Really great crowd, and one of my Mom’s old friends, Gesine showed up and we had some biere in the biergarten. She has watched me grow up, and was proud to see the Bitch show. She thought she might stay for a couple of Jay’s songs—then of course stayed all night!
The next day, Alligator and I rented bikes and rode all over the city. It was wild–our hotel was built right on an old prison site. We had very intense dreams. The history, similarly, was intense. We rode along where the wall was. We went through the huge city parks. We picnicked and drank lots of coffee. The bike paths were so user friendly and it felt like I could fly.
Munchen was last night. The last night of the tour! We stayed up til 2 am chatting with Jay–we will miss him! He is off to Tel-Aviv, and we are off to Paris!
Here is a shot of Billie, Jay, Lisa and Bitch in the dressing room before our last show! Safe travels and see you soon!
now we are heading back to the Hauptbanhopf to take an overnight to Paris. TTYL!
