7, 5 hours….
I can't believe we've let the Vampire Weekend thread die for so long
but you need to come back with an epic recap of your adventures in VW-land, asap
and I hope (am sure) you had fun
so we need all the juicy details
haha, ok ok, here it goes….
Ahm, the concert was to start at 9 pm, time of entering the club was 8 pm, my lecture at uni was to end at 7.45 pm… guess who ran like a lunatic to the subway station… haha
OK, so the whole day was chaotic, it was my first day at work, after that I had to travel through all of the town to get some stuff, one of the stuff: the brand new and fantastic camera the fiancee of my sister got a few weeks ago. I was so happy to have it, we had some really nice photos and videos taken at the Hoosiers concert so I was thrilled.
After my incredibly boring lecture (I can't quite remember but it had something to do with verbs and past tenses and something …) I hurried to the station, totally thankful for my train already waiting for me, then I had to change onto another sub and then… got on the wrong. … aaaaaaaaaaaaaah, luckily I only lost a few minutes and when I finally got to the club they only just started letting people in, I spotted my friend who was just at the entrance and then… after 10 seconds, was in Now the sad thing, the horrible horrible thing: no cameras allowed….. !!!!!!! I had to leave it, I did have my phone, but usually it's really difficult to take photos with that, as there's too much security…especially if you're right infront of the stage… YES! Aw, perfect perfect places!!
well, then we had to wait, I went to the loo, and guys, if you're ever in Hamburg going to a concert in a smaller venue, let me tell you, backstage rooms are always close to the facilities … I didn't have time to wait and see if they're there somewhere though…
My friend then walked to the guy at the bar asking if the tour poster is still available and he said sure, we should come after the concert and we could get one…or two. (which is great, I mean, I now have so many tour posters I haven't spent ANY money on them and it's just great…, I need more space on my wall though)
Then there were two guys standing close to us, they were just a year younger but.. sooooo immature! haha, and they were so excited that they were there, at a concert and reminded my a bit of 8 year old girls tbh… haha (and the funny thing comes later….)
Then the photographer came… the ugh photographer with the long hair that's always there when we're at a concert so I told him that I knew him from the We Are Scientists concert and I dunno, he kinda felt like I just asked him to be my best buddy or something but he was just …weird-… (at some point he had his hand on my head… ahm, wtf???) anyway, he gave me his card where he would put the photos, so that's ok. (he made them for the Rolling Stone Magazine)
The support act: The Strivers, from Switzerland, I think, they were quite OK, but they're songs were too long so after 2 and a half minute you kinda lost interest… but ok-ish still.
After that the guys started to make everything ready for VW, also: putting the setlist (that looked so short…) on the stage and then those two guys who stood close to us started making jokes "What? They need a LIST to remember their songs?" "Hahaha, how many drugs must they've taken to forget them, hahaha" … and so on. I then turned around and told them that it's absolutely nothing weird to do, that in fact most bands have a setlist and that it's just something usual. They wouldn't believe me and continued making fun of that… weird boys.
When the setlist was attached right infront of me on the stage I gave the guy who did that a smile, as if trying to say "that'll be mine, right?" He smiled back and, well, I do have that setlist here right next to me as I type this
Then they brought out grapes… O.o none of them were eaten and we were rather eager to ask for them after the concert but… well, we didn't
Then, they came out, first Chris T and aaaaaaaaaaaa, I was so happy.
here's the set:
during the first few songs the guy with the setlist made photos and videos and I'm sure I'm on there, but I have no idea where to look for them…
It was great, amazing, fantastic, Ezra's shoes, Chris T, the way they danced and laughed and talked and performed and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, great great.
After the show we waited a bit, got the setlist, got our posters and then went to the merch, I wanted that Beanie but they just had three shirts (and one of those was already sold out when we arrived) and the bag, so I chose the bag, because I wanted something and I've seen on the list that NOBODY has bought one yet and in Cologne, were they played before only three were sold…
After that we got my camera and walked out. So many people! The football (or soccer…) game Manchester – Chelsea was broadcasted in the club and outside and people all around were watching so we chose to wait a bit, see if we meet anyone of the band…
When we wanted to leave we saw Chris T walking back to the venue and we hurried but were to slow and we didn't want to run, I dunno, it seemed too awkward … after that nobody came out again and after 30 mins or so we left as it was already late, we were hungry and I had to prepare loads for uni next day…
But: You can see the photos here: as I was standing right next to the photographer he basically made photos of what I saw, I just hoped there were more… (and he didn't take a photo of Ezras shoes, like I asked him to do…)
But- perfect night, perfect perfect perfect
it was my second last concert so only one more to come, I'm slightly sad…
God, they are so good live <3 <3 <3 <3
We got there late because my friends suck at making plans, so we missed their first couple of songs.
But we still saw most of I Stand Corrected
And a lot of their other songs, including Walcott, which is my second favorite, and Ladies of Cambridge, which is awesome cause it's about Boston
Plus A-Punk and Oxford Comma, which were fun because the crowd was really into them.
Ooh ooh ooh, and they played a new song! they're working on the new album now, and since this was a one-off gig, they played one of the new songs during the encore! It was really good, so now I'm excited for that
We waited outside for a little bit, but my friends had to drive the 2 hours home and it was cold and wet, so we gave up before any of them came out.
But it was still a lot of fun. I missed them. And now I really need to see them live again, soon.
