That was it, last night was my 50th TV Smith gig! And it was a good one!  8)
 
I arrive to find Tim and Ilona on the staircase leading upwards to the "Club Thing" (a youth club placed in some kind of electric transformer station on the outskirts of the town of Metzingen). It is nice to arrive to familiar faces!  :) Soon Wolfgang arrives too (who'd parked the car - parking space nearby is a bit of a problem) and also we meet Meike & Co. inside!

The club is pretty full (and smokey too - strange thing with the anti-smoking law that it seems to be no problem in a youth club, eh?) and there is a nice stage, Tim says the sound is very good.

Then he's about to start to a good-numbered audience (there are a few faces I think I've seen before at his gigs) and it seems like he's on fire!! Very energetic show and crowd asks him back for 2 encores!

Here's some kind of a setlist (I wrote it down at home, thus the order isn't correct apart from the first few and last few songs - also when I woke up this morning I added a few I'd forgotten!):

Only One Flavour
Clone Town
No Time To Be 21
The Future Used To Be Better
We Who Wait
Coming In To Land
Expensive Being Poor
Useless
Happy Homeland
Immortal Rich
Lion & the lamb
Keys to the world
Big Fish
Replay
Generation Y
Great British Mistake
Good Times Are Back
I Delete
Xmas Bloody Xmas
Pushed Again
Lords Prayer
Festival Of Fools
Gary Gilmore's Eyes
Bored Teenagers
One Chord Wonders

In The Arms Of My Enemy

Runaway Train Driver

Well, it seems like I chose a very good one for the # 50!  :)
Highlights for me were: Clone Town (very apt in the town of Metzingen, where there IS a clone town of "factory outlets"!), Coming In To Land (giving me goose bumps, always loved this song), Festival Of Fools (good to hear this one) plus the new song Keys to the world!

Afterwards the merch desk seems pretty crowded (TV brought a small choice of stuff with him). Rummelsnuff are starting their show then and it's pretty clear to me that it won't be my thing tonight after a great TV gig... altough it seems to be a fun show.

I chat to Tim ab bit at the merch desk and outside (where refugees from a nearby container accomodation have made a bonfire - yes "Happy Homeland" was an apt choice too). I thank him for 50 good live shows and say good night...

Happy 50th (gig) Uli - glad you had a good one!

That's a lot of gigs. Not as many as TV of course, but not even he's been at all of his!

Thanks, Fred. Here's a pic I stole from FB:

Well he told me he's been at many more. I think it's very good if he turns up, especially at solo gigs.  ;D

Yep, TV told me on Saturday he hadn't gotten round to update it, but would like to do so soon(ish).
