...well, just around this time I should have been in plane bound to Cologne, but some kind of fever forced me to skip this plan. But since it would be such a sin to skip the event itself, I rescheduled my travel plans for tomorrow. So that if everything goes well (still not sure, but optimistic), hope to see you tomorrow since 4pm somewhere around THE venue.... :notworthy:

Sound on the venue so far is *horrible*. Camouflage just went off the stage, far too much bass.

This is exciting! I wonder if they could play 1959 in a Von-Isabelle dialogue arrangement. Or maybe that would be too tasteless.
