Tour Diary 1/6 | Friday Feb 16

The Winter Tour started at Bar Kuka. A great bar in the Turku city center. This event was the original booking that finally expanded to this 6 day trip. I arrived at the bar right at the same time as Jansolo lifted his amps through the front door.

We set up the PA and Jan played first. Really nice atmosphere and nice people show up. A prefect start. Everything worked as it was supposed to and I got to test my new video projection synth. I realized using it might be too much of a hassle so I decided to leave it home. Already my gear is getting a bit too much to carry around without any help. :-/

The gig was one of the best I’ve had in Turku. Kuka’s stage is perfect for two guitar acts and Jan is a great guy to play on the same night with. He uses more pre-made loops and I make them on the fly (sort of custom hand-made artisan loops) – We’re both loopy, so we go well together.

Got to talk to my friends, but also had to leave too soon, because next morning I had to wake up at 4:40.
