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!

Saturday Fever In Las Palmas

OK, so it´s still just Thursday , but thank god the weekend is getting closer.

Doesn´t really make any difference, since that means WORK TIME !!! But , anyhow….it is all about the felling you get really 😉 Weekend I do LOVE you !!!

If you are on GranCan and have no plans for Saturday, do follow my advice!

From 17.30 ( ish) every Saturday in Las Palmas on The Las Canteras Beach (playa no puta 😉 ) there is a place called LA GUARIDA with LIVE MUSIC. Different band every time. Excellent place !!!

 After that gig is finished  they all go off along the ocean to another place called NYC (after the New York Taxi )  where another gig is played right in the middle of the street. Crazy, Weird but definitely KICK ASS COOL !!! And what surprised me the most…when you think it´s all over and the party is finished…they then start walking again to the “final destination ” a place called Alfredo the Kreus, for the last gig of the evening.

AMAZING!!!!!!

Different music, loads of people and a whole lot of fun !! Please do try it. it is absolutely a blast 🙂
