Notes From Das Boot, 179

August 12, 2013 / Lucerne, Switzerland

We are playing the Schuur it’s a good mid sized club. The thing that sticks in my head here was the front of house sound and lighting desk are housed in what looks like a flying saucer. Although I remembered it as being much more “I’m doing lights from a goddamned FLYING SAUCER!”, it actually looks like a prop from a high school play.
A final note on our day off. I’ve complained about the heat over before, one of the things that would make it more bearable would be wire/mesh screens for the windows. For our european friends, a window screen lets in air but not flies. Anytime you open a window over here to get a little breeze it’s an open invite for hordes of flies. This is where a screen in the window would work wonders. But nothing, I haven’t seen one screen all tour, I can’t even remember if I’ve ever seen screens over here. The only reason I can think of is that flies are a powerful voting contingent over here in Europe and they’re keeping window screens out of the EU.
