I'm not planning too far ahead as usual.

The Franklys will be touring Germany soon; I laid my eyes on 2 dates: Tübingen on 28th January or maybe Karlsruhe on the 7th of February. (?)

While I missed the Cryssis show in Stuttgart last week, they'll also be in Karlsruhe on February 6th!

The Strange will supposedly be touring in February, but I've not seen any dates so far.  ::)

Hugo Race Fatalists plan more touring for spring, hopefully this time with a date closer to my home.

TV of course I should see in April and (hopefully) in May/June.  8)
Just around the corner and miles away...

The Strange were great last night. Laboratorium in Stuttgart (eastern part of town) is a nice place, it's more of a pub with a stage though, which means it's seated - while that was perfect for the acoustic kind of set Distance Light & Sky played here last September (incl. Chris Eckman, who's also singer of The Strange), it's not ideal for "rock music". Never mind, I arrived shortly before they went on stage and most seats were occupied, so I kept standing (and rocking)… :D
(Later, some ladies got up and danced.)

I enjoyed very much to hear the new songs from the new album I'd listened to for months. The band sounded perfect (8 people on the small stage incl. a "horn section")!!
Audience loved them and asked them back for 2 encores. Glad I got to see them finally.
