DB ASIA PACIFIC TOUR 2013 FEB!!





Wow, I'd never thought this would be possible.  Not just becauase I've never been to Australia, but I can finally get to see the homeland of my friend Conor (fixture records), kangaroos, koala bears(!), deep fried mars bars, Blundstone boots, and Rowland S Howard.  This is gonna be cool.  I've heard so many amazing good things already from my friends Wet Hair, who toured there this past year.   Can someone take us to go fishing and BBQ somewhere? Man I'm so excited to go to Oz.

But wait, theres more.  This is gonna be the dangerous part of the tour for me cuz I'm definitely gonna eat myself to death and become a sloth in: HONG KONG!!!!! SOUTH KOREA!!!!!!! AND JAPAN!!!!! This will be my first time to Korea as well so I can't wait to eat some real Bulgogi and Kalbi and sundubu jjigae.  I'm gonna for sure gain like 20 lbs on this tour....expect a lot of food pictures on this tour.

below are the dates:

Feb 8th - Perth International Arts Festival - Perth, WAU
Feb 10th - The Tote - Melbourne
Feb 11th - FBI Social - Sydney
Feb 13th - Back Stage Live - Hong Kong
Feb 15th - Almost Famous - Busan

舊夢難找



舊夢難找  .

電影"第二春"插曲 .

作曲:王福齡 . 作詞:綠琴 。

黯淡的燈光, 冷落的街道, 你在這裡徬徨, 尋找失去的舊夢。

深深的憂傷, 充滿了心房, 你看流水小橋, 不知人在何方。

郊外風光依舊, 往事不堪回首, 她的音訊, 她的芳踪, 哪裡還能尋求。

往日的溫馨, 如今無踪影, 喝完這杯苦酒, 留下無限的哀愁。

舊情難忘, 舊夢難找, 滿懷淒悵, 離開這傷心的地方。

DB Eastern Europe tour 2012

































































































Thank you to Birgit, all the promoters for believing in DB and brought us over to Eastern Europe.  We had an amazing time, thank you to all the amazing kind hearted people who housed us, took care of us, showed us a great time, fed us, and drank us half to death (in a happy way) I will never forget this trip.  Its one of my most cherished travel memories.

Highlights: Crowd surfing at a folk festival in Netherlands, Balkan BBQ MEATS, drunk and confused dancing to Ska at a skin head party in Zagreb not knowing if they were neo nazis or the good skin heads, drinking myself to death in Reykjavik, drinking myself to death in Belgrade and watch the sun rise at the danube river, listening to Alexander's beautiful opera that he composed, Clapping my hands traditional greek men style one knee on the ground showing appreciation for the women dancing for me, afterhours kebab stand bro down with the 2 coolest cooks from Turkey in Vienna, Drinking 6 different kinds of vodka and puked out the borscht and pirogi I had just eaten 4 hrs ago in Krakow, playing Anton's mellotron in Berlin for 2 nights straight, sunday park sun bathing in paris, and all and all it just seemed like a dream that was over too soon.

Thank you.  To new friends, no sleep, friendship, and the never ending road that leads to god knows where.

Yours truly,

Alex
