Sunday afternoon and I had time on my hands. Took a scenic drive across the "Schwaebische Alb" down to Balingen (90km). Why not combine two things I like to do: going to a gig and "taking in" the beauty of our countryside here?  :)
(And it added to another "hobby": taking photos.)
After a look around in the town centre I drove up to the mountains in the southwest, a steep climb from a parking lot later I was on top of a rock/mountain with a great view.

When I arrived at the venue (not the "Sonnenkeller" for once, but another pub/bar named "Doppeldecker") Ilona and Wolfgang were already sitting inside, so I sat down too. Nice place, reminded me a little bit of the "Anyway" in Essen.
A while later Sally joined us; TV said a quick hello, before he had to go onstage. No-one seemed bothered about the early start, in fact I think for many this was convenient on a Sunday night!

TV started with the (very apt) "Not A Bad Day". Setlist will come later, TV has it. I'll explain why: as we were seated, I had the great idea of writing it down, but I'd left my pen in the car; nobody around me had one (going back to the car during the show was not an option!), then Sally got out her phone ("is she looking for the pencil-app?" I thought to myself) and opened a text program and wrote it all down (I took over when she left for a short time). She passed it on to TV, who just sent it to me:

Not A Bad Day
No Time To Be 21
No Control
We Stand Alone
Green Zone
What If
I Delete
Lion And The Lamb
Never Again Until The Next Time
Expensive Being Poor
Immortal Rich
No Hope Street
Last Lost Sheep
The Drink
Generation Y
Pushed Again
The Day We Caught The Big Fish
Sunny Side Up
Land Of The Overdose
My String Will Snap
Gary Gilmore's Eyes
Bored Teenagers
One Chord Wonders
Only One Flavour
Keys To The World
Runaway Train Driver

I thought this gig was much better than the one on Saturday (and I was glad those who were there the night before agreed with me)! The audience was much more into it and showed lots of enthusiasm, clapping and singing along at times. They loved the new songs (there was a girl who lip-synched the words to the old and the new songs). During "Pushed Again" someone provided great backing vocals ("in my head...")!  8)
Apparently the new CD was sold out at the end of the evening.

Thanks to Wolfgang for buying me an alc-free beer (back in the day that was a "no-go", but nowadays I like it sometimes)! Thanks TV for a great gig and Sally for taking care of the setlist (& the merch).

My photos of the gig are quite blurry (I'm better at taking pics of landscapes or buildings). Maybe there is one I'll be able to share later...

I'm glad too - had some work to do today, but with the energy of a TV gig behind me, it always goes quite well!  8)
