Amsterdam. Always a great city to hang out in and guess what, Ten Foot Pole was performing with Venerea as their support. The ticket price was only 9 Euros (which is 9.69 US Dollars) so hey, why not? After arriving in Amsterdam by bus we went to McDonalds which was right around the corner of the.

After arriving in Amsterdam by bus we went to McDonalds which was right around the corner of the nice looking venue.
Then after 3 hours of wandering around, finally, the doors of the venue were opening up so we could embrace the sheer delight of warmth. Hoorah.
After waiting for what seemed a ridiculously infinite amount of time, Venerea appeared on stage.
I had downloaded their new cd Out In The Red in advance just so I would know some of their tunes as I had never heard of them before.
While still having pain in my throat I waited for Ten Foot Pole to appear on the stage, which obviously, they did after a short break between the 2 bands.
Now don't get me wrong, I like Ten Foot Pole's stuff on Rev and their later albums such as Plastic but the live show just didn't do it for me.
Concerning their setlist, I can't remember all of it. But, among others, they played Broken Bubble, Old Man, Plastic, The Getaway, Nova Scotia, Armchair Quarterback.
Anyway, it was entertaining to watch and listen to but it's certainly not a band I would go see more than once unless you really, really, really like this band.
