This was a special one, a big company in Finland threw a summer party for
their peeps and partners. A whole bunch had gathered in the middle of the forest, next to a creek…a truly beautiful place indeed…other acts on the bill was for example Pandora so the setup was indeed interesting. We left from home in the early afternoon since the place was only around 130km from where we live. I drove there with my car and Tommy & Tapsa (backline tech of the day) joined me. Upon arrival it was raining like hell…luckily it stopped for a bit while we were playing and by the time we left we had sunshine…The show itself was a quick one and after loading the gearvan we headed back home. On the way we got hungry so we stopped for some burgers. Also featured were a couple of hockey players (Niinimaa & Kukkonen) showing off the Finnish Championship Cup, Poika….so all in all it seemed that the organizers tried and succeeded in pleasing everyone…and of course there was an open bar as well. Anyways, this was a really different kinda show but a lot of fun and it’s always nice to be back home around 2 hours after the show ;-) The next stop will be a string of dates in Europe, 4 shows in 5 days….which will be a nice change of pace from the 1 show per weekend summerstyle.
