At the end of January Andy V announced via BandsinTown that he is coming to Berlin for a single show in April. The next day I saw that also Mr. Woodnote is playing on the same day and the same show. Wow - two of my favorite artists I would like to see - together at one show.
After a hard working day with a short stop at home to freshen up and leave all unnecessary things at home, I reached Revalerstraße around 9:00 pm by bike - a beautiful sunny day - T-shirt weather - many partygoers. For me it was the first time on the RAW grounds where the Urban Spree is located.
When I entered the Urban Spree Club, I was already listening to music. When asked if it would still cost the full entrance fee, I was told at the box office that Mr Woodnote had just started and clearly - full price. After I payed 18 € I saw that Mr Woodnote together with a Rapper (sorry, don’t know his name) was already full in his Elemet. First of all, I ordered a beer at the bar and placed me on the side to warm up and recorded the first video.
A short time later I saw Andy V standing at the entrance. I went right away and greeted him and told him that I saw him together with Dub FX 2014 at SO36/Nordbahnhof and two years later at Huxley’s Neue Welt. When he asked me what I thought of his performance, I had to admit that I hadn’t seen it because I had to work so long and had just arrived at the club.
After Mr Woodnote had finished his program, several more songs were played. Andy V and a certain Elias, as I learned later, also came on stage and joined in. Andy V on keyboard and saxophone, Elias as singer and equipped with harmonica. After I had taken 2 - 3 more videos, I put away my smartphone and danced until the end of the show. It was fun.
Afterwards I went out where I met Andy V again. Elias also joined us together with a woman who introduced herself as Melissa. Melissa took a picture of Andy V and me. Afterwards I talked with Elias and Melissa for a relatively long time. A member of Mr Woodnote’s staff came by and asked if I wanted to buy a CD. But since I had spent all my money on beer, Melissa finally arranged for me to get a CD like this.
Then I made my way home. Around midnight I was back, listened to the CD and did some internet until I finally went to bed at 03:00 o'clock.
