Boogie nights and garden parties
In the end, it was Bill Callahan at the Orange House, a grungy youth clubby venue we both love, it is so very un-München. He was preceded by a surprise guest, Scottish singer Alasdair Roberts, who turned out to be brilliant. Bill C. was inscrutable but his voice cuts to the quick (wherever that may be). The only information he shared with the audience was "We had a big night in Vienna last night". Aha.
We boldly took a taxi to the lovely birthday party at 11.30, with a German driver who used to fly helicopters in Cambodia for the US army and said he doesn't want his sons to become soldiers.
And on Saturday, a gourmet date at Bine's where everybody brought some food and we sat in the garden, defying the odd rain drop.
