First time in Madrid! We played at the new Caixa-Forum, a museum on the Paseo de Prado, right in the middle of town. This time again with David Apfel, doing speech on "Impossible", dancing on "Muy chungo/Jabon Jabon" and giving a presentation on perspectives for a longer life by biotechnology and drugs. The audience was astonished. We made lots of fans apparently, more than sixty people signed up for our newsletter after the show!
We stayed in Madrid for the weekend, and have seen futuristic lifeforms by Theo Janssen and more incredible stuff at a digital arts exhibition at the Reina Sophia-museum, ate some broken eggs, had some tinto de verano, got to know the city etc.
Hope we will come back soon!

A huge stage in front of the museum Caixaforum, a beautiful summer night. We had one of our biggest and probably best concerts this year. This time again with Marti Sanchez who did some great visuals. This was the first time we played with a setlist and knew which songs we will play in which order. And it worked out fine. The audience was very nice, very mixed, as some originally came for a Flamenco concert in the Auditorium, but then stayed for our show as well.
