It is hard for me to justify heading out to a show on a weekend night. Coming from Austin, Texas, I thought I had heard it all. I had become incredibly jaded, I didn’t think there was anything new out there for me, and I felt dated in a sea of young twenty somethings when heading out.
Little did I know I would giggle like a 15 year old fangirl when I got to see my friend’s band – Diving For Sunken Treasure – at Kaffee Burger in Berlin. The spark ignited again.
We walked in a bit early and I could tell this place had character. The vibe was fantastic. With cheap German beer in hand, I could tell it was going to be a great night. Before we knew it it was PACKED with people shoulder to shoulder – and all sorts of people at that! Punk rock kids, hipsters, hippies, general populace… (don’t ask me where we fit in there)
And with the first chord the crowd went nuts. Screams, cheers, and whistles were heard while everyone broke into dance. A huge smile came across my face.
This… THIS is what I’ve been waiting for.
My trigger finger went crazy and I took a bazillion photos. They had charisma. They had talent. It was really REALLY good.
I wish I could take them back with me to Austin and showcase them at SXSW.
I wanted the world to hear them.
So I’m doing what I can do and sharing the love.
I found my heart in Berlin. I hope you can see why.
Enjoy some pics from the show and play the following YouTube video to get some moody awesomeness flowin’. 😀
…and while the bottom video is not normally what they sound like, I’m kinda obsessed.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BASTI! xoxo Thanks for inviting us to your show it was AWESOME!
