groningen x1

 

smooth train rides north from cologne to utrecht, and then almost to groningen, but then an accident on the tracks forced us out at assen and onto a greyhound bus for half an hour.
Laurens from wishfulmusic met us at the station and walked us to the place where he and Wouter had organized a house concert. We had originally had this day off, but Sarah, a very nice local, who had seen us perform in Groningen last year, was not going to be able to attend our performance at the museum on Saturday, and had asked wishfulmusic if they could organize another concert for us at her house. we said of course! and another band from Canada, Slow Down Molasses, was touring through town too and had agreed to come play a set too.
It was in a big student-like apartment, 6 young folk sharing a six-bedroom house. aliza and i got our own room because one of the flatmates was travelling. 
after some great homemade beer in the backyard courtesy of Paul, and a huge stir-fry by Sarah, the concert started. Originally we were supposed to play first, but since the other band was electric, they decided to play first for noise-level reasons.
Slow Down Molasses played a great, dreamy, stripped-down set. And they are all super nice people too.
We were up next, a full living room of eager listeners - wishfulmusic brings out a great audience of really nice people. it was a fun show!! and afterwards there was bonfire lit in the fire pit in the backyard, and we got to meet everyone.
