Gig in Nürnberg (26.Nov) ist ausverkauft!  :o

I'm told that the gig in Nuremberg (Wilderer, must be a small place) is sold out.  :o
Thankfully I've been planning my trip today already, so I should be able to get in. Phew.  :)

Yes, I did get in.  :)
Arrival in Nuremberg around 4pm, Pamp informs me that I should meet TV when he comes from the train station at 6.30. I stroll around the town a bit, end up at the "Christkindlesmarkt" (Xmas market), there's thousands of people, so I leave soon. When the time is closer I walk in the general direction of the pub "Wilderer", then head up the street towards the station, where indeed TV is walking towards me with his guitar and suit case. I take the guitar and pretend to be his roadie to get in.  ;)
It's a nice but small bar/pub with a punky theme (the owner later tells me it used to be heavy metal before he took over). The walls are decorated with all sorts of "kitsch" incl. religious pictures, crosses and other stuff (e.g. a pic of Keith Richards with a JD bottle and stickers from punk bands). As a veggie, TV isn't much pleased about the antlers on display, I guess it's because the name "Wilderer" means someone who's illegally hunting animals. There's also a huge Elk head (with Xmas glitter stuff on it).
Apparently the club sold 60+ tickets, there's fear of 90 people being crammed in here at the end - but as it turns out, it won't be too badly crowded. After soundcheck I'm a little bored, so I decide to sample the beers they have on offer (Grüner Helle, Zirndorfer naturtrüb, Schlösser dunkel). Later the 2 merch girls (Franzi + Nancy?) entertain me with some hilarious stories about their profs at Uni. Then I chat with the owner and also with Garden Gang guitarist Chick.
Pamp plays first, a good acoustic show with many of the songs from the new Garden Gang album ("Target group wellness & wine" is one of my faves, plus "Licence to live", "Masterplan" etc.). Then the local band "Hitchhikers" are on, nice guys, playing some kind of hardcore punk, which isn't bad live. Finally TV is on with a good set of songs as usual. Due to the beer testing, I can't give you a detailed set list, but many new songs were played, incl. (my wish) "Probably", "Complaints Dept" & "Worn Once" plus the hits like "Xmas Bloody Xmas" and "Runaway Train Driver".   8)
Later I hang around backstage with TV, Pamp and some people from the band and from the pub team. It must be around 3am when I go back to my hotel.

Only complaints: the floor is quite sticky and my shoes were becoming "heavy" to lift. Also a smaller fight broke out during the gig, which apparently was carried on outside (I was told about police coming but never saw them).  :(

Found this photo; you can see some of those "religious" pics behind TV and a Maiden poster - told you it used be a metal pub  ;)

Enjoy the gig Slaughterboy, would love to have gone to that one- too far away for me from Lancs though. Sure I`ll meet up with you some day and have a chat at a TV gig in the future.
