2010/03/09 The festivals are drawing near
|So the year is 2010 now, and soon the next festival season will start! Of course we're looking forward to playing again, at new places, and armed with new songs.
The "city and country hand in hand" principle applies for keeps this year. The tour will lead us, amongst others, to Vinjerock in Jotunheimen, to the idyllic Tydalsfestivalen, and to more urban environments in Drammen for the Working Class Hero festival.
The last scheduled festival for this summer up to now seems to be the Rått og Råde festival in Stavanger, in case we actually manage to overcome the walker barriers! Of course we look forward to be the soundtrack for the pensioner riots, hopefully with some great vintage molotov.
The concert overview has been updated, and more dates will probably be added in the course of spring.
The atmosphere was great in 2009!
