Three silhouettes in the night

Original post retrieved from 16.07.2011

We were invited to the eleemosynary (lovely word) Põrguvärk festival (okay, it means „fund-raising“) near Elva, South-Estonia. We got the chance to use an extra high model of Ford Tourneo Connect, which was extremely comfy to drive around with all the equipment. Especially when taking in concideration that we had about a thousand km to run (in terms of Estonia, it’s a lot). Estonia is just beautiful and this story could be based on that alone but I think... where was I... oh yes, the concert. Always getting lost onto the right roads we got there in the morning, met the organizer, Elli (mentionable words of praise and thanks right away) and cought a quick glimpse of the stage and the place. Then drove back to even further south, Suur Munamägi (Haanja), grabbed Madis basically straight from the stage after his performance there and right back to the festival. Then we were called for a soundcheck but were also called off because our dismounting of the local drumset and the very small time limit would have been just too much. So suddenly we weren’t in a rush after all. We chilled out, sat outside with the guitars, Madis had his Cajon and we just jammed. Shortly, a local rapper joined us from nowhere. Wasn’t too bad actually. Then we met another performer for the night, Prägnantne Brigaad. They were just so adorable, two cool guys and from what we had heard from the soundcheck, they were good. Finally with all the delays, we went on stage at about something after 1AM. After the Prägnantne Brigaad had made a deep impression on us and the audience, it was a bit scary to go on stage. But all went well, what appeared to be a quick soundcheck, melted into the first song and we carried on until the end. Big thanks and a bow to the soundman. It was all perfect from the start. Everyone just adored Madis on his unusual percussion and clapped along to a lot of songs which was just amazing. We finished at about 2:30AM and overwhelmingly felt how it was our best performance to this point. Second ever with all three of us. As we couldn’t stop, Kristian got in the back seat with his Julia (the guitar) and with the early morning daylight fading in, we hit the road whilst singing and feeling great. Special thanks to Kadi (who sings great by the way) for being our irreplaceable head of documentation (read: groupie). Thanks to her, you can see the photos and videos of the concert via the links below. Over’n’out.
