Let's Tampere

Yesterday we played our first "concert", and it was surprisingly ok. Tonight it's Tampere-talo. Early show and shitloads of friends coming, lets see how this will end. Judging by the guys attending I'd say we'll get hammered after the show :)

Kemi once and again and once more

Arrived last night. The show in Kerava was shitloads of fun. Wasn't really expecting that, but it's nice to have positive surprises every once in a while. We drove to Tampere after the show, I checked into the hotel around 04:30am, slept until 13:00 and at 15:00 I took the train to Kemi.

This morning I went to do a radio interview with one of the representatives from my school, talking about the studies and songwriting and stuff. After that it was 6 hours of studying and now I've been working on some home assignments. Tomorrow I have to be there again at 09:00, should really try and get some decent shuteye tonight, I've been sleeping way too little lately and am starting to feel it.

It also seems like the Autumn has finally arrived, it's been running late for a while now...

Got to stay at home all of 3 days

Today it's again time to hit the road. Tonight we shall rock in Kerava and tomorrow I'll head up north again, have to be a nice little schoolboy on Monday. Next week we will play our first concert hall shows with Mr.T, kinda nervous about that. Maybe we'll even have an extra rehearsals for that shit :) We've already rehearsed some new material for those, but dedicating a few extra hours to getting ours shit together is never a bad idea :)

I'm back

Had a blast during our mini "Lapland-tour", all three shows were shitloads of fun. A Big thanks to all the people who attended, there were a lot of you, and a gigantic thanks to the phenomenal staff at Bar Ihku Levi, Amarillo Rovaniemi and Ramona Kemi. Slight sleep deprivation ensued, but hey, one can rest when one is dead... On Saturday we actually went first playing disc golf with Timo, and later picked up Risto and went playing actual golf.

Pictures really don't do justice to how it looked

Can't go to Lapland without seeing some reindeers, obligatory pic.

In search of the perfect swing

Off to work

Time to hit the road, gonna be a looong week, but whatevs, I like what I do. Lets beer great!

BTW, I found a song that could, and probably should, be the theme song for this blog. The lyrics are a bit juvenile and "teen angst", aside from "I hate you - That's an understatement" , which is a great line :), but then again, this blog is juvenile and angsty as well, so it's only fitting. So here's a great sendoff to your weekend, sincerely from me to you:

Lets get busy

So, today I've gone to buy some (guitar) strings, picks etc. Changed strings and played through the Railio set just to remind myself how the songs go, after all it has been over 2 months since I played with the guys the last time. Also learned to play Mr. Railio's upcoming single, we are after all shooting a video for it on Sunday, so it might be a good idea to be able to at least fake playing it :) After that I went jogging, which might've not been that great of an idea considering that last week I had quite a lot of issues with my left foot. Just felt like going, so...

Tomorrow I'll head to Seinäjoki and after that it's pretty hectic for a week or so:

  6.9   Railio rehearsals @ Seinäjoki
  7.9   Show w/Railio @ Vaasa
  8.9   Railio video shoot @ Seinäjoki, travel to Kemi by night
  9.9   School @ Tornio
10.9   School @ Tornio
11.9   Travel to Levi with Timo
12.9   Show w/Timo @ Levi
13.9   Show w/Timo @ Rovaniemi
14.9   Show w/Timo @ Kemi
15.9   Travel day...

Well, at least I'm not going to be bored...

Careful what you wish for

Back @ home

Spent the last week @ Lappajärvi with Mr.T, in the end we played 2 shows, rehearsed 4 new songs for the acoustic set and wrote 2 new songs. Not bad for a bunch of hippies like us :) Now some school-stuff and on Friday I'll go to Seinäjoki to rehearse with the Railio band before our show in Vaasa on Saturday.
