The Billy Shinbone Show

Neubrandenburg

I've played a few strange venues in my time, but last night's gig in a ranch-themed bicycle shop & bar is one I'm unlikely to forget. I played a short Shinbone opening set without any problems. But when we played the band set the acoustic properties of a ranch-themed bicycle & bar became apparent. We battled with feedback through most of the gig. Nick broke a string mid-song but, rather heroically, managed to change it & tune up again before the song had finished. The after show party was so fabulous & fun that we'd have to rebrand the gig a before-party show. So many lovely people to talk to by the fire outside & a seemingly inexhaustible fridge full of Astra beer. Thank you to Hartmut from the bike shop for throwing such great party & to Jason from Last Orders for his work, help & hospitality here. On to Rostock for a private gig in a house tonight...
