MARGARET’s feeling a lot better this morning…phew! And we can have a bit of a lie in as Eduard isn’t coming to take us to the bus station until 12.20.
I get some online stuff done and we drink coffee as we get packed to leave Rakvere and Eduard arrives bang on time. He has us at the bus station in five minutes and we get all the gear ready.
The bus arrives at 1pm and we get everything on, find our seats….and sleep all the way to Tallinn.
Tonight’s promoter has booked us into a hostel right beside the bus station so we check in and try and get some rest…we figure we won’t come back here after the show as I’m not playing ’til midnight. That means I’ll finish sometime after 1am, we’ll hang out for an hour or so selling merch and chatting to folks then go straight to the airport. We’re on a 6.40am flight to Frankfurt which means a 4.40am check in. No point farting about going back to the hostel for an hour or so…
We get a taxi to the venue, load in and soundcheck then go and find an Italian restaurant. Our first proper meal since Monday!!!! Fuck sake!
Back at the venue, doors are at 9pm Mad Harley 0n at 10pm, our pal Andres at 11pm and yours truly at midnight. Jeez….gonna be a long one.
As it is, the time flies by. Great music and we chat to loads of folks we know from previous shows in Tallinn. The place is pretty rammed and going crazy by the time I hit the stage.
I have a blistering time and do my best to kick the ass out it…this is a heavy rock crowd and they’re out for some fun 🙂
We hang out for a while and by the time we pack up, load out and get some weird-ass taxi – think Wacky Races –ride to the ariport it’s after 3am…rock’n’fuckin’roll…
