CASPIAN TO LAS PALMAS

It’s funny really. It doesn’t matter where you live, there are always some people that will complain that nothing happens. That all the days are the same. And they wished that they lived somewhere exiting.
I have been there and I guess still am. More so now I think, well I have actually gone from being in the city to living on an Island…
Oh, that made sense didn’t it.. oh well.

But on the bright side, every time something exiting DOES happen, I get to experience the feeling of  REAL JOY !
My heart starts pumping. I feel like a kid on christmas eve. Now that IS pure joy!!!

This time it is a visit from Amerika that is making me exited!! The instrumental postrock band from Massachusetts , CASPIAN , is having a concert on FRIDAY 13.JUNE  in Las Palmas , PAPER CLUB !!!

Wow,WoW,Wow !!!!

If you haven’t heard of them ,  check ’em out ! If you are on the Island that day, check ’em out !

It is sooooo worth it!

Midsummer Festival Up In The Mountains

Very often people come down to the south of Gran Canaria and they are so disappointed that it´s so dry and more like a desert. Once a year when it might rain, people are then disappointed that it´s actually raining. NEWSFLASH : Sometimes, not very often  yet sometimes it does actually rain in the south. It happens around november or/and january/february. In other words not very often, so no wonder it is dry in the south ey ? 😉 However if you drive up to the mountains (north where it is raining more ) it IS actually GREEN and beautiful !!!! True story !!!!

In just 1 week it is Midsummer and up in the mountains of Fataga in a place called

FINCO MOLINO DE AQUA there will be a Midsummer Music Festival !

Oh well, then we recommend that you have a listen to it now 🙂

This Canada based band ( yeas , Canada has more than just bears ) started in 2001.  We saw them during their Neon Bible Tour in 2007 that was sooooo amazing!!!  They are about 8 people in the band ,but brought with them and orchestra with about 10 ish people. Can you imaging the sound and the buzzing feeling?

Now the good news is , they are back in studio !!! And if everything goes after the plan , they will hopefully go on tour next year !!!

NOW THIS IS BEACH MUSIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
