Das Leben Es Und Cabaret

So we played our first show with Yo La Tengo last night, in Bielefeld. I thought we went over well! It was great playing on a big stage with proper lights, sound, monitor man, everything. People seemed to like it.

Still sweating, I rushed over to where we’d set up our merchandise next to the bar, hoping to sell some stuff. A guy came up to me right away.

“Zwei rotwein, und ein tasse der tee,” he said cheerily.

Wow, a compliment. I wished I could understand. He saw the incomprehension in my eyes and launched in again, speaking louder. “Zwie rotwein, und ein tasse der tee!”

Shaking my head, I smiled. “I’m sorry, I don’t speak German?” In other words, please tell me how wonderful you thought we were, so I can understand.

“I’d like two red wines please, and a cup of tea.”
