NEW NOISY MAMA WEBSITE with the new pics from our photoshoot (AFTER coffee!! www.noisymama.de
Today we had to get up at 4:30 a.m. !!!! @∆ √ç≈∂‚€®†Ω¨Grrrrpfzzzz !!!! Arghhhhhh !!!! to be in Mylapoore at 6:00.
Reason being: a) light b) the only time where you have a slight chance to get a clean shot without at least a million people walking through the picture…. after the third coffee, I finally stopped looking so grumpy that the pictures would have probably only scared everybody away, and we actually got a few really nice ones.
Afterwards we had breakfast at the coolest place ever RAYARS MESS (not very promising name but actually a 80 year old tiny place where all the great classical musicans like Palakkad Raghu, Mani Iyer and many others used to come (and except some tiles I don’t think they had changed the interior ever !
What a day !! We were supposed to catch a relaxed 7 o’clock flight from Bangalore to get to Chennai in time for the soundcheck of our concert.
5:30 a.m. flight got cancelled…. bummer … rearranging everything to get things done in time ….. oh well happens.
7:45 a.m. The band standing outside the hotel to go to the airport to the next flight – no cars….
8:30 a.m. big confusion solved after many phone calls…. they were waiting at the wrong hotel…dhaaaaaaaa !!
9:10 a.m. Heavy traffic in Bangalore…. we start to get a BIT nervous..
9:30 a.m. Call from the second car ….. THE DRIVER GOT LOST GOING TO THE AIRPORT !!!!!!! HOW CAN A PROFESSIONAL DRIVER MISS THE AIRPORT IN HIS OWN CITY !!!!!?????????????
9:45 a.m. Checkin counter closes – John and Carola get held up by uptight security at entrance who thinks a guitar is the typical weapon for international terrorists or something.
9:49 a.m. Counter staff yelling at them for being late – after much discussion at least the two made it into the plane
doing our best to soundcheck for the whole band..thank god biju came by car….waiting…. waiting…waiting
7:00 p.m. Doors open for show….. Sreeram and Naveen walking into the venue after an exhausting day of hanging out in bangalore….plug in and play……. Yeah !!!!!!! No idea where the energy came from but maybe we from the relieve to have everybody on stage
