After a four hour bus ride north...
Tonight, we played in Riga. Today, citizens of Riga got a heads up about our show in the local paper!
Miks, our gracious host, set the show up in the Eduard Smilga Theatre and Museum. This is place run by very politely stern elderly ladies- one of whom scolded me in Latvian for something, but I'm not sure what. Anyway, I rarely post stage shots because they're usually grimy and unbecoming; also, pictures of bars and clubs and the realization by my parents that that is where I spend a good percentage of my time probably doesn't sit well with them, so I give Mom and Pop this:
We, and locals Tesa packed this beautiful little room with tons of people and a whole heck of a lotta racket.
As I mentioned in the previous post, I built Riga up to be pretty great. Thus far, I haven't seen much but, we've scheduled time on Monday before our flight back to take in the city a little bit.
