And 100% agree with Mr 6!
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:50am fred:

It took me years to learn about Richard Pinhas. The way I did is I heard about a Merzbow/Pinhas gig and told a friend "wow, you're playing with Merzbow!" and he answered "no, it's my dad who's playing"
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:51am Paulo AD:

Have I ever shared with you my band?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55am CarolCrow:

Hello Destroit!
Avatar 🗒 4:55am Don in Tampere:

Thanks for the wishes. I think the riskiest part of the trip is the train from Tampere to Helsinki, since almost no one wears masks here. Germany has a nominally higher infection rate but I think that's because they test more, plus they are still requiring FFP2 masks on public transit and at the trade fair. As for the other danger on everyone's mind, I don't think anything is likely to happen along the flight path. What would happen in Finland joins NATO is another question, but If Russia can't manage to progress in Ukraine, I think dealing with a 1300 km border would be tough. Support for NATO is over 60% here, but I fear it could be a devil's bargain, especially since the Orange Turd could end up being President again.
Avatar 4:57am Destroit:

Hi Carol! Nice to hear you.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09am Brian D:

@Don, almost no one had a mask on during my train ride to the station. People are getting too lax. And NATO... depends on US stability.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10am Brian D:

Been meaning to listen @Paulo, and will do so. Promise.

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:16am fred:

No masks at shows anymore here. But as a severe introvert, I tend to stay as much away from people as I can, especially in crowded settings
Avatar 🗒 5:18am Don in Tampere:

Thanks Paolo! I'll copy the link and check out later, since right now I'm listening to currents! In case you or anyone else is interested, here's my current band: darkbottle.bandcamp.com...

Cheers Don, just bought the album :)

Thanks Paolo!
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:31am fred:

@Paulo: That should be epic! On a related note a friend of mine is about to release a record with his brother, and they picked old family pictures of them for the cover. Some people are going to get the record for the pics alone, even if they don't care about the music, brilliant marketing move!

We went to see Melvins and Ministry (we missed COC) I only saw one person with a mask and it was double. No one went close to him. He was in the general admission floor area.

Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 5:46am fred:

I most often stand in the back at shows. Even before the pandemic, I would often spot the two closest people, draw a mental line between them, a perpendicular from the middle point to the wall and go there. I guess I "have issues"
