Seems like when you find some time to write you just can’t seem to stop. While I’m at it, I stumbled across this posting at the wonderful Koukou Yakyuu Blog done by Goro Shigeno who provided briliant live blogging for the Summer Koushien last year. Yotube footage of some of the pitchers in the upcoming spring tournament. Unfortunately no Wakayama Chiben … I actually don’t know if they were invited. I think I’ve become a fan because my Japanese tandempartner is from Wakayama. Plus I like the big “C” the fans display in the stands.

Yet another Hit & Run show, this time in a rather unexpected location.

It only gets slightly problematic when the audience of one show and the crowd of the other one meet in the bar room. Hilarious. Yesterday saw a brilliant mixture of sXe hardcore kids and drunk metalheads in long leather coats.

Sometimes it feels like evenings long ago happened just a few weeks ago and that’s exactly what it was like for me last night. It wasn’t that long ago that I had seen our good friends of The Gaslight Anthem though. They played in Cologne last summer. But seeing them again sure felt like they came back after a 4 week trip.

As for me, there’S shows I remember because of the music and the way the band performed. And then there are shows I simpley remember because of the surroundings, the people I met there, the conversations I had. And maybe because of the headache I had the day after. (more…)
