The Uglysuit - 11/21/08 - Hague, Netherlands (Crossing Borders Festival)
Ah, Holland. Snow? Below 78 degrees? Blizzard? Great times? That’s right, all of the above!
show time, we unloaded our equipment in a moveable 1920s-esque tent
thing. Having a for-sure Carnival vibe added to the surreal realization that we were playing in
Just before we started to
play we took a gander upon some people taking seats and it brought a smile to
our faces. After the first song a second
gander proved that more people had shown up. Surprised and excited we continued the set, even after hearing the
splashing tube sounds that made for a nice background noise. By the end of the set we were informed that
the Quatto Tent was at capacity and they
had to close the door and turn people away. WHAT!? That makes no sense! Ha
Ha!!!!! Insane. All I have to say.
Afterwards, Crosby and myself set
on a quest to find the interview were suppose to be attending. Little did we know that the interview was a
live radio broadcast in front of a bunch of people walking around this lobby in
front of the place where the Black Keys were playing. Eyes were widened and
nerves did not stop us from doing what we do: creating awkwardness.
It also helps that the universe plays this
game with us, for the first answer given by myself was a series of mouth
movement and no sound. My mic was not
even close to being on. Happentopat, it
was off. Now also hearing our voices
booming over the system in the lobby, Crosby proceeded to give a visual
demonstration to a radio audience. All
in all, we soon asked to leave for the next person to sit down and off to bed
did the dos of oos (us).
Now after that,
Cros and I headed to bed, but apparently at the after party the guys and the
Jans got to hang with some good company and get more GREAT food.
Oh! The food
that was served to us was in fact so delicious it took my breath to the other
.the other side, whew! Steak,
potatoes, some kind of pasta, oranges and my favorite, strawberries. Ah. So. Good. Ness. Oh man. And woman.
Children and aminals universally transmitting. The sound. Of a yummy tummy.
think that concludes this segment of Holland and the events that took
place. Signing off, this is Larry
Chin. Have a great night, day, sleep and wake.
Peace, love and understanding,
