It was a bit of a strange month... The Dir En Grey-concert was pure awesome! I started to wait in line at noon (and there were some 15 people waiting ahead of me), got picked out of the queue and was named "visitor of the month" by the venue, which got me a spot on their Facebook and two free concert tickets of a concert of my own choice.
I went with an Eindhoven-based heavy metal parody group that play mash-ups of metal classics with horrible Dutch schlager.
The concert was so exhillarating! Standing so close to the band, finally seeing them live after watching them daily on Youtube... hearing Kyo scream, feeling his pain... I'd been trying to pay attention to Toshiya's bass techniques but after Tousei Kyo was all I could look at.
Barely three weeks after Diru, there was a Primus-concert! Got me a nice place at the front so I could watch the bass player. During the first set with all their audience favourites, that was yum, particularly American Life. Nothing prepared me for the decor change of the Wonka set though... whoa...
Four days after Primus was the freebie concert. I'd met up with a guy I only knew from the WWW who turned out to be very nice, we had a great time together and the concert was so much fun! Since it was Patatje Metal's final concert, they were generous enough to give all audience members a free T-shirt and CD.
Inbetween I went to Leeuwarden on another trip with the contact group for visually impaired youngsters. Which was a weekend of contrasts, but that's another story for another time.
