Berkeley

So much fun! The beautiful Greek Theatre was shining, the California weather…not so much. Night 2 of the homecoming, even more old friends than Stockton. Party on.

Stockton Homecoming!

The return of Gary Young, Revisiting favourite Mexican haunts, an introduction from the Mayor and reconnecting with old friends…this is Stockton.

The beautiful ‘Fox’ theater was the venue. The whole Kannberg clan was there and all in all it was a great night.

Toronto Island

Great times in Toronto with our good friends Broken Social Scene. The festival was heaps of fun and one of my favourite Pavement shows of 2010.

Sasquatch

Back in the USA….and you can tell. Different crowd, vibes and everything else really. Apart from the stunning scenery from the gorge, it was a frustrating day. Heavy handed security, playing after LCD (who tore the place apart), the schedule running an hour behind time and coolish, windy weather made it a not so memorable day. The positives? Well, it was SM’s birthday and his family joined, also West’s family were there, the dressing room was ace, plus Scott and I got to catch up with our Seattle posse. Steve West’s daughter Lulu also played on “We Dance”. She’s awesome.

Barcelona! Ole

I arrived in Barcelona a few days before the band to catch up with friends and eats lots of tapas. What a great city. We were there for the awesome Primavera Sound Festival. It was a great lineup and a short walk from our hotel making it super easy to hang out. I finally got to see Monotonix, who were completely insane…in a good way and of course good friends Broken Social Scene. Wilco and the Pixies weren’t bad either. Ibold took us to an amazing tapas place on our last night…Inopia..check it out.

European Shows

We started the tour in Dublin, then off to Glasgow, Paris, Amsterdam and London. I left to tour for 2 weeks as I had to go home to attend a wedding so there’s no photos of most of the continental European shows or ATP. Sorry. From what I hear, all the shows were fun despite most of the band getting a cold thanks to the fresh weather and travelling in a bus all day and night.

I am baaack!

Apologies for my slackness but I’ve been busy. Carrying on from Coachella, we headed to Ireland. Scott and I decided to go over a week early and travel around the west coast. We visited Galway, Killarney, Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs, plus every golf course so that Scott knew which ones to play when he returns! Here’s some pics.

Back in the U.S.S.A - Pamona and Coachella

Well there were a bunch of nerves leading up to these shows but according to all reports, the band did just fine. There’s nothing like getting back to the US and feeding on In-and-Out burger to help ease nerves. 

We bumped into many a star (or wanna be) at Coachella and tried to keep an eye on straying bimbo’s coming into the trailer to steal booze. what a nerve. Anyway, good times had by all. My fave day was heading to Joshua Tree NP and meeting up with Ibold and his lovely lady for a feast of steaks and smoked chicken at Pappy and Harrietts in Pioneertown.

Nagoya

Possibly the smallest show of 2010…venue size that is. Club Quattro is located in a shopping mall which was great as I was able to shop when the guys were soundchecking. The crowd was wild. We had amazing fried chicken in Nagoya and partied hard at Karaoke. Its a modern city, home to about 8million but it feels a lot smaller. We were all sad to leave Japan, but we’ll be back for Summersonic in August.
