Week 4






Viikko 4

Viikko alkoi mukavasti vapaa-päivällä Albanyssa. Hotellista löytyi ihka oikea Sauna Metos-kiukaalla. Sähkövastukselle ei saa täällä Ameriikassa kataa vettä (suomeksi: heittää löylyä..) Siinä voi henki mennä...mutta: uhmasimme kohtaloa viskomalla vettä kiville. Lauteita ei oltu korotettu, joten löylyt tahtoivat mennä yläpuolelta ohi,.mutta: mepä otimme seisovat löylyt....

Tiistaina soitimme legendaarisella The Fillmore-klubilla New York Cityssä. Paikka oli niin legendaarinen, että siellä ei ollut edes suihkua meille. Mitä legendaarisempi rokkari, sitä paskaisempi...NY-Citystä jatkoimme matkaamme Baltimoren Ram´s Head Liveen. Oikein mukava paikka kaikkine fasiliteetteineen. Torstain vapää-päivän vietimme, yllätys yllätys New York Cityssä. Shoppailimme hieman Manhattanilla. Kolee mesta..

Viikonlopun keikkaputki käsitti Worcesterin "The Balladiumin", Poughkeepsien "The Chancen" ja Philadelphian "Theatre Of The Living Artsin". Philadelphian keikka oli viimeinen Dragonforcen kanssa tälle kiertueelle. Seuraavan viikon soitamme vielä omia headline-keikkoja. Ohessa vielä muutama kuva: mm. Amerikkalainen kansanperinneruoka sekä mm. Henrikin ja Dragonforcen Vadimin soittama kosketinsoitin-duel.

Week 4

The week started off nicely with a day off in Albany. We got a real Sauna in the hotel. Really good steams. In Finland we got one sauna per five persons. That´s something like over 1 million saunas. Americans don´t know hot build a proper sauna. "Don´t poor water on the stones" ?????? In Finland, sauna rule number 1: poor water to the stones and enjoy!! I like sauna so much so I´m sorry if I got a bit carried away.

On Tuesday we played at the legendary Fillmore-club in NYC. It was so legendary that they didn´t have any showers for us. You know, the more legendary the rocker is, the shittier (smellier) he/she is. From New York City we continued our road trip to Baltimore´s Ram´s Head Live. It´s a really cool place with all the facilities. On Thursday we had a day off , surprise surprise, in NYC.We did some shopping in Manhattan.

Weekend´s shows were at "The Balladium" in Worcester, on Saturday at "The Chance" in Poughkeepsie and "Theatre Of Living Arts" in Philadelphia. Sunday´s show in Philly was the last show with Dragonforce for this tour for us. Next week we are still doing six headline shows here in the states before we leave.

Gah, I so wish I could've been at the Worcester show >.< Unfortunately, finding transportation back home would've been a problem.

Come back soon, alright? ^.^
