Default Erick's TBM Shatz, Showz & Tid-Bitz

Might as well, eh?

So fellow board member, David, and I saw TBM last night. He was in Europe and decided to spend some extra tim touring Italy and seeing TBM in Milan and Ravenna. Actually, it wasn't even in Ravenna. The second show was a in a tiny beach town SOUTH of Ravenna called Cervia. And we screwed the pooch on Ravenna! If we could have found a hotel in Cervia, there were more restaurants open, a carnival, beaches and mini golf! ARGH!

So, the venue was "Rock Planet," a tiny whole-in-the-wall rock club. There were about 35 people in the venue! David and I were the only Americans. There was a couple from Slovenia who drove because he loved the videos on YouTube and the rest were Italian goth and rock kids.





David:



The opening act was Ragedy Angry. So-so in studio, very fun live. They covered "This Is Halloween" and "Gansta's Paradise", haha! The bassist liked me because I was yelling my usual heckles at the band. I had them sign their CD I bought.

The Birthday Massacre played a pretty packed set, most of their norms, too. My favorite songs were played, though! Blue, To Die For, Video Kid and I Think We're Alone Now.

Onto photos...



(Dude, I LOVE Chibi's tat on here right arm!)

I started talking to Ragedy Angry and then members of TBM. Each and every last person was so cool. Great conversation, lots of curiosity on both ends and excitement all around. Also, everybody loved my Tub Ring shirt. ;D :P







And I got to tag Chibi, so she remembers my name from now on.





Now, a week until Riga!

I just moved to Italy for work. XD I AM going to Riga spur-of-the-moment, though. David was on vacation, already.

Kizztronice: Thanks! I'm glada FEW came out alright. The crowd got a smidge larger, but that's it. Me, being a 230-lb American with a love of Oi!, Crust, hXc, metal and industrial, my jumping and such was NOT a fan-favorite, haha.

Nice pictures. I'll unload mine and post them when I get a chance and I'm not sweating so much.

We really should have gotten a hotel in Cervia.

No shit, bro. Like I said, if I had my car, it would have been easier all around.

I'll e-mail you a few from today, as well.

Also, I showered and am sitting in A/C. God, I love A/C.

Haha, we got lucky. I thought Riga was going to be like that, but it looks like all the Riga folk are going to the Tallinn show since the Riga venue canned TBM for the night.

Everybody rather enjoys it, but I feel as though it's too soft of a focus.

Default Tallinn, Estonia

So, the show in Latvia was canceled because the owners ran off to Russia. Yeah, you read that right.

TBM came out and the crowd went WILD, WILD, WILD! Latvians who missed the Riga show and Estonians were going crazy, nobody there had seem them play live before! Aside from me.

Sadly, Falcore's rental gear had no loaded pre-sets and kept screwing up on him. I actually felt bad for the dude.



Aside from that, TBM SLAYED the crowd.
and crowd was going APESHIT fir TBM! Chibi saw me and waved with a silly grin, too. I felt loved and remembered, haha!



My favorite shot of the night.



Sweaty Chibi...



O-en:





O-en and me:



Sharing a drink with O.E.:



Post show, O-en shared his friend's hitch=hiking horror story and I talked a bit with O.E., Rainbow and Chibi. She and I actually chatted it up about a lot in a few minutes. Also, I gave them a back-pack with sour gummy worms, Starbursts, gum, socks and Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk, since I had just finished it. We talked about his other books and Poppy Z. Brite, but she had to take off to pack and get to the hotel. I was a sad Erick, I wanted to keep talking, haha!

Then Kadi, a local who tends bar in Tallinn at Levist Väljas, offered TBM to go to her bar. And me. So I met her friends, we ate dumplings at the bar (a friend, Emily Scissorhands came to mind at that point) and O-en came out and asked me, "Was that YOU who gave us the bag with the tiny bottle of Riga Black Balsams in it?! IT WAS TERRIBLE!" And we started cracking up.

That drink is 45 proof Latvian hooch that tastes like Jägermeister and iodine mixed. One cracked it open and said, "UGH! This is horrible, you need to try it!" And both bands did. XD

Dear Die-Ary,

I'm planning which shows I'm seeing in the United Kingdom this October to see The Birthday Massacre and Raggedy Angry. It looks like the last seven shows are what's on my plate.

I'm wondering who will be at what shows so I can plan things such as travel time and arrangements, lodging, food, drinks and the lot.
