Dada Life North American Tour Blog #1

Apr 2 2010

So we went to Miami dressed up as Super Mario Bros all hyped up to rock Laidback Luke’s party at Liv. The fake moustaches fell off after the first track and we were constantly bumping into each others inflatable tummys in the crowded dj-booth. The day after we woke up with bruises on our knees. It’s dangerous being a super-hero jumping for coins.

Laidback Luke’s Super You & Me-party was easily the best night of the weekend. Tiesto also dropped by the dj-booth and had a drink. So now we’re on good terms again. Since he stole a track from our cd-case (the only copy of an unreleased tune) we’ve had a little Tom and Jerry-fight going on. Our best move was when we finished our opening-set with that tune just before he went on in Liverpool. That was evil. And so much fun.

All that is history now. Forget and move on. After all the mad shit that spells Miami we went to NYC for some nice days of doing nothing, and then up to Canada for gigs.

Sorry. Time for a late introduction…this is the Dada Life-tour blog! We’re in North America for two weeks of gigs. Calgary done. We played a great little club that almost felt like someone’s living room but with a really good sound system (and no tv!).

Vancouver done. That was one crazy party.  The crowd almost pulled down the dj-booth from stage. And yes, we mean literally. Not as in “let’s rip this place up”. The guards had to push people away to save the equipment from falling over. Sound of Stereo also played a banging set. Nice guys too!

Other than that this tour has been like a well planned food holiday. First we had Grimaldi’s famous pizza under Brooklyn Bridge, and then a juicy rib eye steak in Calgary. Vancouver? Sushi of course. We even had dinner twice.

Later today we’re taking the ferry over to Victoria (hey guys, what do you have planned for dinner!?) and tomorrow we’re flying down to San Diego to eat some mexican food. Oh, and to play the great club Voyeur…

We’ll be back soon with more recipes and rants.
