OOOM TOUR #14 COPENHAGEN!

TALLEST MAN IN THE WORLD, LITTLE SHOW THAT COULD!
the copenhagen show must go on! despite cancellation of the thursday night at Vega, i refuse to come all the way to europe and not play copenhagen after 6 years of NOT. we were very lucky to connect with YOU SAY PARTY! in OSLO earlier in the week and discover they were playing on our day off, and one thing led to another we joined their show, and had a GREAT SHOW! THANK YOU YSP! was a pleasure to finally cross paths and meeting more fellow sweet heart talented Canadians xxxxxxxx loads more snow to make us feel at home too!

ashley, will, matt and i headed into town to see the site. we lost each other, but will & matt found the little mermaid…… while our swan of a fearless leader tour manager had a coffee and held down the fort.

matt took a break from editing, to join the boys in the boiler room for laundry day….

YOU SAY PARTY! PLAYED THEIR BEAUTY HEARTS OUT – we brought some cheap champagne to the stage for their drummer, alan’s b-day bash!

MORE SOOOOOOOON!

p.s. other than striving to make a show happen at all, the best part of copenhagen, is MATT found another city to do jump split in!

OOOM TOUR BLOG #13 – HELSINKI!!!!


anyone visiting this blog, would know by now, that i have a thing for scandinavia. although they say there we no vikings in finland (i say there were vikings everywhere!) i still feel the connection with the finns, which was then emphasized further by the viking volcano incident. in the spring, i was stranded in finland (PLEASE visit VOLCANO BLOG ARCHIVES for proof!) and things got even closer between me and the unique bread of humans that hover in the north. for most of the world, OUT OF OUR MINDS tour is bringing me back for the first time in over 5 years. i’ve played 4 shows in helsinki in the last 2 years x go figure. i feel at home there, and the great people receive me as if i was there own…. and it was SNOWING, but cozy backstage at NOSTURI!

finland’s own MANNA played her final show on our MAdM MANNA scandinavian run together (earlier in the day, we braved the snow together for some soup, heart to heart and a dress, kittos) their show was fantastic. MANNA joined me later for the new ‘BECAUSE THE NIGHT” tradition that Harkin and I established at the top of this tour x

We played a show, where i was challenged with with some technical oddness climaxing with breaking my LOW E string at the top of Followed the Waves. my first string break since 1995 – but thankfully it happened, where i feel most at home x

…. and of course, there was the CLASS OF HOPE 2010 REUNION!!! lovely lovely faces, those that i picture in my inner minds eye, when i play music inside. thank you for being YOU! x REACHING FOR HOPE!

til next time Helsinki, any summer festivals next year interested in having me?!
thank you for your true support finland x

OOOM TOUR BLOG # 12 OSLO / SHINING!


I DISCOVERED NORWAY’S SHINING AT DOUR FESTIVAL THIS SUMMER
a dream of collaboration has been hatching since then…… we arrived in perfect Oslo, to make up for our Lost Volcanic Mono Show, and to summon Blackjazz…….

The MAN and his SAX arrived, we walked through some songs and whipped through a soundcheck to see what came out…

Foggy Notion was the first Munkeby choice, so that came first in the set, BUT we threatened to come back with more. she’s seen it before, and she still wants more…..

MOST OUTRAGEOUS VERSION OF “SKIN RECEIVER” EVER RENDERED X knock my lights out inspiring to have a wind instrument with a Viking at the helm, join the electric dirge – extra musicality brought into the light.
TAK TAK SIR JORGEN X

BE SURE TO WATCH THE AUF dER JORGEN DOCUDRAMA AS SEEN BY TEAM OOOM MATT!

THIS ALL MADE FOR AN OUTRAGEOUSLY AMAZING NIGHT IN OSLO X TAK MONO!

Next up HELSINKI! X

OOOM TOUR BLOG #11 STOCKHOLM!


ANOTHER DAY OF CITY SPLITS FOR MATT!
awoke, on an uber grey, rainy swedish morning, on the water, outside of club DEBASER. very picturesque city that i have not played in since 2004. we walked the streets, found perfect junk shop, had coffee served by a perfect beauty, did photo shoot and interview with perfect swedish metal magazine, played a great great show to a diverse and intelligent music crowd, hung with a chilean metal band living in sweden, bonded with finland woman / band MANNA who joined us for the scandinavian leg of the tour… all around perfect night in stockholm, thank you!


the lovely ladies of MANNA, and lone gentleman below……

MAdM MEETS PABLO, MARIO & DAVID!!!! CHILEAN VIKINGS!

OOOM TOUR BLOG # 10 KOLN!!!!


WE LAND IN LOVELY KOLN, GERMANY AND GREETED BY OUR HOST FOR THE NIGHT!
it was a beautiful church, with an incredible production team setting up the stage, lights and the camera crew that was shooting the show for german tv. definitely a highlight of the tour!



THE SHOW WAS AMAZING! the crowd was passionate, it all looked and felt glorious!








I thanked our host, and the church’s pastor Thomas, for opening his holy building to music. it was a very special night, especially when i sang FATHER’S GRAVE…..
i felt a ray of healing light come through that moment. DANKE!

DON’T FORGET TO CHECK OUT “OOOM” ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE AT A KINDERGARDEN : the german tv show that was filming the show later that night, interviewed me and we played them a quiet song, as seen by MATT!

MORE SOON!!! LOVE!

COPENHAGEN RESCHEDULED!

Due to unforseen circumstances we are sorry to inform that MAdM’s show in Copenhagen @ Vega on Thursday, November 25 is cancelled. However, there is good news – MAdM will instead be appearing Friday, November 26 @ Beta where she will share the bill with fellow Canadian countrymen YOU SAY PARTY!
Tickets for the 25th are valid for the 26th or can be refunded at point of purchase.
PLEASE NOTE! I THINK YOU ARE BETTER OFF GETTING REFUNDED FOR THE VEGA SHOW, AS THIS WILL BE A SHORTER SHOW, AS I HAVE BEEN ADDED TO “YOU SAY PARTY!” EXISTING SHOW, SO WE PLAY SHORTER THAN OUR OWN SHOW. I AM SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE TO ALL WHHO WERE SCHEDULED TO COME TO VEGA X I AM ALSO GRATEFUL TO YSP FOR INVITING US ONTO THEIR BILL, OR ELSE THERE WOULD BE NO COPENHAGEN SHOW! AHHHHHHHHH
