A change must come

When I started this blog I had a plan for it. I haven't followed that plan at all. And now I want to rethink what I really want to do here. I've had some thoughts on the subject, but I haven't settled on anything yet. I will certainly make some changes, continuing this way makes absolutely no sense.

One of the ideas that I got from a blogger on the community over at x3m would be a hard rock blog. That would certainly narrow things down a bit. Anyway, I have to think it through before I do anything. I'll get back to you when I've decided what to do. Until then, take care of each other.

Wasa Band Jam coming up

It's been a while since I posted here. I've been very busy, and I also had a cold. But I'm back in business now. Starting next week we'll try to practice a little more with Hilastherion again. And about three weeks from now, our Foo Fighters cover band will be performing the second time in just a few weeks. Our first gig went really well, even though I had a fever the day before the gig. But the show must go on, and it did. At Wasa Band Jam you can hear us if you missed it the first time, or if you want to see/hear us again. WBJ is on the 16th of March, so come and rock out with us and loads of other bands.

See you there!

Mission accomplished

After three days with a fever (39 C) I was finally well enough to get up on my feet and play the gig last night. S couldn't make it, she had a terrible headache. But my parents were there. It actually meant quite a lot to me that they got to see me do what I do best musically. And they liked it, so what could be better than that?

Our singer had put up a camera and filmed the gig, and some time after the gig while I was sound asleep, he texted me and wrote: "I just watched the gig...Thank you for coping, if you die now, that was one hell of a finale!!".Well, I'm not planning to die just yet, this morning I got up before nine and took a shower. But sure, it was hard work last night.

The Pretender was the worst part. None of the other guys could hit those high notes, and the song is really kind of weak without them. So I did it anyway, even though my voice wasn't in shape at all. Sure, I made it through, but it couldn't have been pretty. Well...apparently you couldn't tell that my voice almost cracked several times, so it's all good.

Anyway, my point is that I would like to promote the main event, Wasa Battery Band Jam on March 16th. It's definitely worth a visit. After all, you get to see my pretty face in action...hopefully with a voice in much better shape than yesterday ;-D

Pre band jam

It's possible that this event description has been available for some time already, but here's a link to the Pre band jam where we will be performing songs by the Foo Fighters. Unfortunately it's available only in Finnish, but here's a rough (but not very good) translation:

We are still deep in the depths of winter, and that is always a good sign that the legendary Wasa Band Jam is coming!

Before the main event, we must warm up from the cold into jamming shape, and you can do this, of course, at the Pre Band Jam! During the event, three performers will give you a taste of what treats are in store for the Band jam sessions in 2013...

Put your hair into shape, throw your coat in the cloakroom and surrender to the Band Jam-atmosphere in good company!


Wasa Band Jam 16.3. More info to come in due time. Stay tuned!


Spring is approaching, join us, warm up for the main event and melt away the snow.
