Two live shows in one night.

This weekend I am playing two live shows in East Germany in the same night. I play at The Sky Club in Leipzig from 2:00AM – 3:00AM and I play an large event called Hard & Smart in an abandoned sugar factory from 4:30AM – 5:30AM. I’ve done this kind of thing before but I always laugh a little thinking how crazy it is (especially considering I am flying from NYC to do it). Everything could go smoothly because the booking agency will be driving me and watching the clock. Howver, I do wonder if I will start my show on time at the Alte Zuckerfabrik (Old Sugar Factory). Reason being I played there before and it get so crowded it’s hard to get to the stage and set up without people stopping you to chat. Here’s a photo from the last time I played there:

I will test out a few new songs and if I am not too sweaty I will break out the iPhone and use sampleToy (iTunes link) live. Before each show I send out a Madmimi promotion. I highly recommend Madmimi for email marketing. You can see the latest one here: http://mim.io/570f2

Madmimi recent also created mini sign up forms you can embed on your websites like this one below the contact form on my record label’s website: thingstocome.com/contact/

If I have internet in my hotel I will surely report in!

    I have to work that night in Laucha. I hope to have the time to see you live.

    Two shows, one night, another country – you’re like the Batman of electronic music!

    Do you get any sympathy when you come in tired to work on Mondays?
