Grand opening of Sam’s new venture (with improved facilities since the Crack show) and somehow i managed to perform a vasovagal collaps, so the show ended in a coitus interruptus. Thanks (i owe you some drinks) to some around i was lifted, got a glass of water and then hailed a taxi to take a quick checkup in the hospital around the corner from home. No issues, „you have the blood data of an 18 year old“ the doctor told me – i guess a blatant lie!
I did see most of the Big Banders, Hamburgs rather large Ska 9 piece. The stage sure was too small for them, they where packed way too tight to be able to groove.
Due to my blackout i missed Hamburgs other Ramones cover band, the Melones. Thanks to Luke here is a pic:
What’s the net result: Great place with more great shows lined up, i guess i will need to split my time between Hafenklang and Monkeys now (and throw in the odd other place). Bonus for the Monkeys: Guinness from the tap! Else the evening was 2nd hand, damn. People told me it was a great evening – i tend to believe them!
