A few weeks ago, Ju and I got a rush of blood to the head and impulse-booked tickets for the VNV Nation compendium gig (celebrating 20 years of the band) in Munich at a converted warehouse – Kesselhaus, along with flights and a couple of days in a hotel so we could have a bit of an explore of the area while we were there.
The gig was brilliant, as expected, and we had a great time. They played for over 3 hours and we found ourselves in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere wondering how we were going to make the 7 or 8 miles back to the hotel, but then we found a nice taxi driver who got us back with aplomb.
We then went and found a late night place to eat, and my rather rusty German turned out to be good enough to negotiate the sale of a bottle of red wine from the owner of the establishment in addition (even though he didn’t sell wine as part of the shop offerings) 🙂
The pictures in this gallery were taken with my phone, as I didn’t feel like taking a proper camera along (in cast it got damaged or lost) but I think they came out pretty well considering. There is some video in addition, which I’ll convert and upload after we get back (I’m writing this in the hotel in Munich).
