I'm in for this one. Loved the venue when I saw Calexico there in ancient times. Ticket came to 48 Euros, but best to order before my s**t thick country's currency collapses.

A proper belter. This and Amsterdam were massively enjoyable. Hamburg and Dublin a bit more reserved crowd wise. Loved the city and will certainly be back for bands and jollity as soon as I can.

Oddly, what Eldo and Mr. Marx seem to consider the production mistakes: The hollow sound, that clinical coldness, and the thwappyness tend to be exactly the elements dodgy crimpers'n'lacy-cuffs beggars spent years trying to ape.

I think nearly every Sisters gig that i've seen over the last 20 years has had a sizeable moshing/bouncing etc. I always used to stay well away but once you get to know everybody it's fine.
