Prison concert

Just got back from playing with Hotel Desperado in Vestre Fængsel (The Western Prison) in Copenhagen. The concert was in the prison chapel where about 50-60 inmates (both male and female) were present. We were kind of nervous before the gig (we had no idea what the audience would be like and what kind of music they wanted to hear) so we started carefully, not playing our most upbeat songs. After the first songs, however, we picked up the pace and were positively surprised at how well the concert went and that the audience appreciated it. The only sour looking people were the prison guards…

Our next concert on May 23 is open to the general public – we are playing at the 25th anniversary of Støberiet (Blågårdsplads).
