Swedish Dreams

I never properly talked about our Scandinavian hosts! Pether & Sebastian (and the lovely Johanna) were the people behind us coming all the way over here to do these shows. Part of Music Doc, a kind of extension of our old friends Rooftop Films, their organization sets out to screen films from all over the world in unique settings trying to bridge the gap of film and music to create a true experience in film going, a thing that seems to be more and more important with the increase in people holed up in their rooms watching films, alone on a phone!

Film screenings in alternative spaces are extra fitting for Scandinavia and Europe as well where the government supported arts funding seeks to foster the cultural growth of it's people and culture in general is accessible and welcome- if not craved (I mean we did play in a government sanctioned abandoned warehouse and to a rooftop of the most varied audience ever...!). Sebastian was insanely nice (pointing out interesting Swedish sights as he drove us between cities) as was his girlfriend the beautiful, funny, bright and awesome Johanna. I don't know how to begin to thank Pether for all of his hospitality, organization, friendliness and smiling that really made the trip an indelible experience that ranks among the best moments of my life! Thanks to everyone at Music Doc! Who knows, maybe they will show up on a roof near you!
