    All right! Last night in Cologne was great. We – that is: me, my dad, Samwise (who you might know from the board), and a good friend of us – left for Germany at about half past two. We had a bit of trouble finding Gebaüde 9, but when we got there shortly after seven, it turned out we’d arrived exactly at the right time. [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img] When we parked our car, we saw a taxi arrive, and out came J and – I assume – his girlfriend. I’d seen him in concert before, but I never had a chance to talk to him, so I was pretty excited. We entered the building just after him, and then I said hi, and explained that we were big fans and had come from Holland to see him tonight. He seemed somewhat shy and quiet, but he was really nice. He asked if this was my first time here, and I said that I’d been to Germany before but never to Cologne. Then I said something about how I’d seen him with the band in Chicago and Kansas last year – I went to school there – and how much I was looking forward to hear him play an acoustic set, and then I had to stop babbling, so we said “see you.â€

    Jasper,
    Thanks for posting your review. The details in your post really convey the atmosphere, and the specialness that is going well out of your way to do something you really enjoy. I am ecstatic to hear J. and his GF perhaps "understood" that as well. Thanks again for the review and your presence here.

    thanks for the review, jasper! [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    glad you finally made it to Cologne and that you had such a great evening. bit jealous ’bout "What Else Is New", am wondering how it may have sounded like, did J make use of his amazing guitar effects in that song? [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    Hey Jasper,

    Great review, no surprise though, you always seem to capture & express the Mascis experience in such a cool way [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Talk about perfect timing [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] , must have been a thrill to meet him as well as his g’friend [img]images/smiles/icon_cool.gif[/img] Glad to hear his back is working itself out, gotta love the free tshirt deal!!!

    Have you and Samwise been using some conversion techniques on your father or is he just a cool guy who appreciates the greatness of J?

    Yeah she was really cute. Couldn’t stop smiling.
    About our dad, we were just in the middle of finding out how we would get to Cologne and back when he offered to come with us and drive us there. Only condition was jasper would drive us back, so that wasn’t a problem.
    I think he really liked the show, he’s been to an electric one with the Fog, too. He thought that one was too loud, but figured an acoustic one would be cool. He even wanted to borrow one of my Dino cd’s.

    I still can’t believe I got to sit ON stage while J was playing, it was amazing. [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    Both. [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img] I think the trick is just to keep playing J’s music around the house. Eventually, nobody will be able to resist the power of J’s talent. [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
