Review by lattenjoe

lattenjoe For those wondering, the pause/cut in Divided sky was potentially due to tech issues from the brilliant sunshower raining down on us in this partially outdoor beer garden. (Imagine old brick walls covered in Ivy, and amphitheater like canopy covering most of the stage and audience with segments open to the sky.) It was one of the most beautiful Divided Sky's I've ever seen through the droplets. Since there were only a couple hundred in attendance, we could all hear through the stage amps even when the PA cut out briefly. Train Song here was likely in reference to the debut the Summer before in Nurnberg, dedicated to the phans following the tour on the Eurail trains. The Germans had such a friendly demeanor and the promoter and his team seemed to practically be giving beer away throughout the show. At this show and the Hamburg, Germany show in particular, few of the Americans knew that if you brought your glass back to the bar, you'd get a 1 Mark deposit back. Some buddies and I figured this out early on and were gladly collecting everyone's cups and trading them for full beers in the back throughout the show!

More of a review of the scene than the music, but take it from someone who was there, this was a fun time!
