Day 65 - Kolsch Concert

June 12th, 2015

Today is a brief one. I slept until 5:30pm, with a brief break of wakefulness in the middle for a couple hours. Get up, Shower, eat, then walk to the grocery store to get some ingredients. Little bonus they have here in Aus: Most* of the main grocery chains appear to have an associated liquor store. This means that pretty near every receipt has some sort of promotion on it for their liquor. I use two receipts to get two 6-packs of heineken for $10 each. Not the best deal, but I’ll probably drink one pack tonight, and tomorrow is French Alexandre’s birthday.

Get home, make food, and write while drinking beer. Laurens worked until 10, then invited me to his place to hang out before the show. I bring my last beer of the 6 pack with me and drink it with them out behind his place, underneath the lemon tree as the brisk air gently blows.

The DJ is a guy named Kolsch, and he’s pretty good. I’ve never been to a show like this, and I haven’t been to Geisha either, but it’s super tiny. Thor said it was 1/4 of the size of Mustang and he wasn’t joking. I think the style was Electro, which is a lot more laid back than the electronic music that I’m familiar with (house, trance, dubstep, etc.) so the mood was different than I expected.

The show started at 11, we showed up at 12, and danced in the dark room with smoke, lasers, and cool backdrop displays. Like I said, this is my first of this sort of show. I wasn’t sure how long I would last - it ends at 5. I dance for a bit, drink a bit, but I don’t think it’s entirely my sort of thing. I took a couple breaks after getting bored and chatted with people from home on my phone. I danced more, but eventually called it quits at 4am, walking home through the crowded, drunk streets.

*: and by most, I mean Coles and Woolworths. Not IGA, I don't think.

Bonus: creepy wall art in Geisha bar:
