it’s now the day after the day after the gig at afaneis. it was fabulous. what can i say ? the velvoids are not only a great band, they are great people too. thank you vice, sid and dora for being a pleasure to work (play) with. you have restored my faith in the live scene and are living proof that bands don’t have to behave like as*oles.
the sound at afaneis was really good. the sound engineer grigoris did a very professional job. the equipment was set up on time. both bands were on time. apart from at ston aera,, this is something that rarely happens. thank you.
after a blazing set by the velvoids the house was jumping. there is nothing like playing a set to a receptive audience. there was none of the usual standing in corners acting all moody and cool. people danced and cheered us on. it really was enormous fun.
thank you to everyone that turned up. i do wish (a slight moan) that the venue had put some effort into publicity, but we proved that unknown bands can get a decent audience by themselves. well done to both bands for that.
and we did get paid. sweet.
thank you to alexi of the workaholics for getting up on stage and jamming at the end. a great time was had by all…
