Once in Germany we go straight to the frankfurt venue to soundcheck and get ready for the evening performance. (The photo above and to the right were Allison’s must haves: Beer, Tour pass and Tour book with all the times listed of where we needed to be.)

After being settled in we went to the store next to the venue to grab some much needed alcohol. Pictured above are Allison’s choices… mainly based on the illustrations…because her second job besides being a musician is being an illustrator…So she’s a sucker for some packaging.

Before performing in Frankfurt our Papabat Thomas (From L’ame Immortelle) gifted us with some Austrian food! Pork! Yummy cured pork! You can see the pure joy radiating! 🙂

Photos above are from the second venue in Bochum. The first one was taken backstage directly after Allison had woke up from the tour “van” and the second one was when she was exploring the dance floors before soundcheck.

Above is a photo after we pulled an all nighter from the third and last venue. We all look really good considering. 😉

What an honor and awesome experience to have toured with such talented people…which are now family. 🙂

Tour meals consisted of Sushi and Lunchables for Allison…. Brady and Austin tended to eat a more well balanced meal. (Allison doesn’t eat much before shows.) Where did we get our lunches? Well scroll to the photo below…

Wal-mart!

A glorious herd of black clad lovelies hunting the shelves of Wal-Mart for some Noms.

The Nacht-family enjoying some food together at Ihop… We also ate as a nacht-family at two other restaurants…

At one of the two other restaurants Austin decided to play a prank on one of the Ludovico Technique members, Ben T., by telling the waitress it was his birthday when in all realness it wasn’t. If you’re from America you know American restaurants sing Happy Birthday very loud while clapping very loud to you for the whole restaurant to hear and then present you with a dessert of some kind. (pictured above.)

It was priceless to see Ben T.’s face as the waitresses and waiters gathered around the table singing to him.

Below are photos that were taken directly after the event:

The person most entertained by this was our German Gregors from Nachtmahr (pictured below)…

“Why is this happening to Groge?!”

Speaking of Groge; Doge meme’s quickly became the mascot of the Nachtmahr tour… so much so that if you fell asleep while in the tour van you absolutely would have a doge meme made out just for you….

There are more of these but I shall keep some a secret. 😉
