Sparks

I saw a fantastic concert last night – Sparks at Metropol Berlin. What an inspiring band! If you have an opportunity to check them out, don’t miss it! Scroll through for a few photos from the gig.

A huge thank you goes to Dyan Valdés for taking me to the show and snapping this pic.

What’s your favorite Sparks song? Mine’s “Mickey Mouse” from Angst in My Pants.

Glasgow 2006

Here I am, at the center of The Blood Arm storm in 2006. Glasgow was always a favorite stop of ours, and this concert at King Tut’s was a scorcher. I love checking out the indie kids of sixteen years ago.

It’s wonderful to look at this photo now, because pulling a stunt like this seems impossible at the moment. I hope to get back to it one day. It’s so much fun.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

Die Sterne at SO36

What a joy to see live music again! The name of the band is Die Sterne, they are absolute legends, and last night at SO36, they knocked my socks off. Scroll through for some wonderful live shots and backstage antics.

A big thank you goes out to Frank Spilker and Dyan Valdes for arranging the guest list. I’m still wearing my Die Sterne t-shirt and I’m not planning on taking it off anytime soon. Ich muss gar nix.

Have you ever seen the light at dawn
Inside the apartment of
A hopeless homewrecker?”

U8 Concert


In 2012, The Blood Arm held a concert on Berlin’s U8 subway line and played a different song at every stop. This was to promote our album Infinite Nights. Admission was the cost of a ticket. Eventually, the BVG stopped the concert and a small riot ensued. Watch video of it here.

‘Oh Baby!’ Video

We were opening for Allah-Las at Columbia Theater Berlin. During our soundcheck we made the ‘Oh Baby!’ video. It took about 15 minutes. We were so rushed, I didn’t have time to take the “hearing protection” (aka toilet paper) out of my ears. I think it perfectly captures that excited-soundcheck feeling. Watch it below.
