Writing from Praha - a free day looms, but tomorrow I perform in Bratislava, and on the 26th I wrap up the mini-tour with another show here.

In Prague for KontrA2Punkt

Hello Again,

Just arrived in Prague for five days of performances and general mayhem. Playing tomorrow night at Café V lese on the final night of the KontrA2Punkt Festival. Balazs Pandi will join me at the end of the gig for a full-freak micro-set! Blood will separate from plasma and both will flow uphill!



More later, OK droogs?

Best,

TS

KontrA2Punkt Festival +: September 21-26

Hi Again,

I'll be doing solo vocal and collaborative performances later in the month in the Czech Republic and Slovenia, and running around Hungary with Balazs Pandi and Feri Kovacs, my co-conspirators in the group Rope Cosmetology.

You can find me in Prague on the 22nd at the KontrA2Punkt Festival. So psyched by the line-up that I'm arriving a day early to catch all the artists in action.


After laying waste to Budapest on the 23rd and 24th, I'll be traveling to Bratislava on the 25th to perform another solo vocal set at A4/Zero. On the 26th, I return to Praha to play at collaborative set with Ruinu at Final Club. On the 27th, I limp back to Hannover.

If you're in the neighborhood, you'd be a goddamned fool not to attend.

Best,

Tomem

Hannover Nov 16 Sturmglocke (with Bremen's excellent Doombruder in support)
Berlin       Nov 17 NK
Prague      Nov 23 Secretion

Check back for updates. Visit the official site.
