OOOM TOUR BLOG #27! TREVISO / RONCADE!!!


DAY 2 OF 3 DAY ITALIAN WEEKEND X HEAVEN!
this time it involves the anniversary of NEW AGE rock club we are playing (meaning big party after show!) and a beautiful castle in the near by small city center of RONCADE. castle winery, with a 250+ old tree that was love at first sight for me… i guess i really miss isis and witchlet when i squeak at every passing dog, and hug a tree…. almost home, but first, fall in love with ITALIA AGAIN! gelato, red wine, espresso, people etc…

meanwhile, back at our castle on wheels, we are counting the end days of the OOOM TOUR…. sad to see it come to an end. it was been perfect, thanks to all of you who’ve come to listen and feel the sounds. matt has done his best to shoot as much as possible and jump as high as he can, but was at a loss for words back at the bus when i received an amazing hand sketched portrait from a magic pink lady…. incredible and thank you!!! it will be framed and hung in my home x

a great show was played, lively people met and a hand carved silver MAdM monogram pick received! gratzie! then came the outrageous after show dance party… when matt’s got his bowtie on and ashley wears a dress, you know we are up for a big night!
new age club, we danced our asses off at your birthday party… you must’ve dropped some magic potion into our drinks… when i am dancing to limp biscuit, nickelback AND celebrity skin… you know something has gotten into me. OH!!!! i know what it is! it’s the joy of the OOOM TOUR~ that’s what did it! IT’S MY LIFE, IT’S NOW OR NEVER, I AIN’T GONNA LIVE FOREVER…. SO DANCE DANCE DANCE!
thanks treviso!

OOOM TOUR BLOG #23 SCHWYZ DAY OFF!


MY ROOTS, THE ANCESTORS I NEVER MET WHOM I DEDICATED MY FIRST ALBUM TOO…. this is our land, and we had the pleasure to have a day off here!!! MATT made the most picturesque split jump of the tour in these here mountains. join us on the journey of the town that made Switzerland what it is today. the place where my Auf der WALL remains, lay in their crumbled glory, marking the bravery and courage of the independent minded people of my family name, that stood up against the Austro-Hungarian Empire and in 1291 became their own independent canton. the brave farmers and fighters of my family line are still living in these glorious alpine mountains. general consensus from team OOOM is it’s the most beautiful place we’ve visited yet! we jumped the mountain train to mount RIG, and had our eyes and mind blown!!!
MYTHEN MOUNTAIN YOU ARE A GLORIOUS ONE!!!!
