"Hanging out in Mitte" J mumbled between 2 of his amazing interpretations of dinosaur jr classics and recent releases. that was kinda tribute to the district in the heart of Berlin where the show took place. it was the Oranienburger Straße where hundreds of people were strolling this evening as everyday as it is on of the most attractive places to spend your nighttime. we arrived there at about a quater to 8. I was totally shocked first when I saw the huge queue in front of the Tacheles. my steady dropped me out of the car and I jumped into the fray. but my pulse calmed down soon as I figured out that most of the folks were attending an art event that occured right next to the Tacheles Café. I quickly grabbed two "tix" (stamped blank notes with no. 15 & 16 handwritten on it [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] ) and picked up my girl again after she was looking for a parking spot for about an hour. [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] as we entered the venue only a few tens of fans were around but it soon changed, and finally when J appeard at 10pm as scheduled the café was packed out with people. as we were standing quite far back it was hard to jostle towards the stage. but I had a good few in the end to take some photos. hope they’ll be fine. J seemed to be in well conditions. he was in a good mood, stable on his feet and quite chatty.

I was absolutely amazed by the show like all the other fans around. the crowd was really loud and a big bunch was singing along to J’s songs. I was completely overwhelmed how many fans have made it to come as it was not much promotion done for the show.

J was giving autographs?! Aaargghh, I could bite myself into the arse! but we had to leave the building quickly as my steady wasn’t feeling well. [img]images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

Flying Cloud, glad you enjoyed the show and I hope you spent a good time in Berlin. [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img] I checked my albums to complete the setlist, not much to add but worth to mention:

Keep The Glove
Throw Down

as there are so many newbies registering at freakscene.net every month, I bumped up the "has everyone seen…" topic in the news/stories forum again. there is an acoustic concert available which comes very close to J’s acoustic shows this autumn.
