i went to see stars tonight, and had a lovely time. they performed at a teeny-tiny club where the audience is always too kool for skool and the stage is barely elevated so if you're up front, you're right in the performers face. so, as usual i was right in the performers' faces, haha.
the lead singer spent most of the time inbetween songs telling us how it took several daaaays to go from canada to stockholm and how all their luggage and equiptment went missing that morning, which explained their problems with the sound. eh, i was close enough not to really notice much was wrong. they played a lovely cover of bruce springsteen's "hungry heart" before my favourite stars' song, what i'm trying to say. when the set finished we managed to get them back on stage to finish off with a gorgeous version of your ex-lover is dead.
the funniest moment of the show for me was when the singer was explaining how upsetting it was to lose all their luggage and how it left them discombobulated. then he whipped out the microphone and pointed it right at my face and said: "quick, what's discombobulated in swedish?"
...heh!i blurted out "förvirrad" (i'm relieved to find now that i'm home that i actually translated it spot on, haha!), which got some laughs, and he went "yeah, we felt "förvirrad." - and then repeated it a few times to laughs. here's the funny thing (to me), he imitated my ridiculous southern swedish accent perfectly, so it sounded extra silly, hahaha. my accent is crazy-hick compared to the stockholm accent. then he tried to get me to translate "bummer," but i could't think of a good word so just shrugged apologetically and said "ehhh.. bummer." :)
yeah, i snapped a few pictures. i think i saw a girl from rockfoto.nu, and definitely a newspaper photographer i've stood next to both at maria mckee last summer and depeche mode last month. he never remembers me, though, haha, so whatever. after the show i bought some buttons. the drummer was helping out doing merch, and i felt so cheap just getting buttons, but whatever.
here we go!:
