Hello from Munich!

This is day 1 of 3 here, where we get a little R&R before we move on to our main event, the STRP Festival in Eindhoven (The Netherlands).  We arrived last night from London, on a Lufthansa flight which I was sure was going to totally ream us on overage fees for our hefty baggage.  Seriously, we were like 80 pounds over.  And yet, here we are, flown and fee-free, having somehow slipped by through some combination of sweet talk, charm, rock-star attitude, and being so late for the flight that were almost locked out of it.

Our show in London was intimate (that's "small", diplomatically put) -- the venue was the basement of the Betsey Trotwood (apparently named after a Dickens character, as Charles Dickens lived in the area).  Space in the basement was tight, but headlining band a.P.A.t.T. was fantastic, and as a fve-piece band they practically filled the rest of the available space there (but nearly doubled the audience).  Owner Richard was very generous with us; we enjoyed many tales of area history as the free drinks kept pouring.  Thanks to Nigel of Pickled Egg Records for arranging this.
