Heady daze in Avilies, the story continues..

By September 29, 2016Dirtette

We head to the venue which is incredible and is a space age fortress. Entering the complex it’s crazy like going under a stadium, I feel like we are real rockstars.


The room we play in is the biggest stage so far and the guys on the desk do not disappoint.. The gig is going to be a cracker!

Here’s just a lil of the sound check frivolity. Casey you crack me up 🙂

My lil safe travel totem gratis bawa is even here..

Pork rib (Aka Maxy our TM) has the merch desk ready for action.


We head outside so Juan Tome an extraordinary local photographer is happy to tour guide for us. We check out the outside of the ‘Futuro Centro Cultural Niemeyer’ it is like nothing I’ve ever seen before.

A quick tapas snack and a squizz of the main town..


We even spied a wedding which was in the town centre.


Then off to the gig which was epic!! Both Tony Ramone and Juan Tome were such generous hosts and it is clear they are proud of their beautiful city and we were all so humbled by the way they lavishly looked after us.


After the show it was onto a late dinner with Tony & his beautiful girl Mirian for a meat feast like nothing else…


Ants even tried blood sausage which had most of us squirming a lil but he said it was delicious.. Even I couldn’t do it (might have more to do with the fact I felt like I had already eaten an entire pig and a fair wack of a cow).

We toasted with a local herbal liquor which was refreshing and a great way to end the night..
