live pics&vids from Mao, Beijing, 2009.09.06

Post by Syren.S » Mon Sep 07, 2009 5:59 am

I'm trying to be the first one to post the pics. :lol:
it was GREAT. awsome. Nu B. :D

the venue is called Mao live house, not very big, but the equipments are the best among those live houses in Beijing.

I arrived early and heard them trying out the instruments inside, but we were not allowed to go in at that time. about half an hour later I saw Lauri went out, and said Hi. Timo and Matias also went out. the organizer said they went for shopping. 8)

gig started at 8:30 pm. warming up is done by a chinese melodic death metal band. strato guys hit the ground at around 9:30.

i'll post a few photos here. the rest i have uploaded to: http://syren.net76.net/blog/?page_id=304
to save bandwidth i've resized all of them. if anybody wants the original one, feel free to PM me.

now, let's start with the setlist:
Image

a little chinese course :lol: :
Image

next time Timo, don't point to my face directly, my hands will shake as hell... :oops:
Image

this is much better. 8)
Image

Jenssi!
Image

Jorggi!
Image

Lauri!
Image

solo!
Image

we rock the night!

and, don't miss these moments...

"kongfu fighting, position one"
Image

"hello my friends!"
Image

Lauri the Buddhist
Image

the signing session after the gig.
Image

i will probably be known as "the girl with a full bag of CDs" from now on, as i brought their every single album and asked for autograph...
sorry guys, for taking so long time from you.:oops:

VIP gifts include Polaris CD, a poster and a photograph, all signed by them.
Image

I brought a little gift for each of them: small bag tag with pictures and band logo. probably not the best quality. i drew them in two hours and asked a souvenir shop to print them :luv4:
Image

I got videos too, but youtube is slower than ever at the moment, so i will edit my post later. :)

why everybody is counting the list as 16? i heard the guy right behind me did the same thing last night and he was looking at that piece of paper directly. it's not 16! it's 17! :lol: :lol: :lol:
