I agree wholeheartedly about the camera flashes, so annoying and so pointless! We were at the front of the balcony so weren't disturbed by comings and goings though.

I like your parallel with Neubauten. I couldn't help compare the gigs with them being so close together, which as a huge EN fan isn't really fair to DCD, but I could see certain similarities. I missed the enormous charisma that EN have though - DCD's music has a great presence but I didn't feel there was enough of a connection with the audience. Perhaps that was just the result of being so far back though, they were tiny figures from where we were sitting.

I was front-right - second row back. The people I noticed coming and going were in the first two or three rows of the centre - just in my peripheral vision where the movement distracted me.

I'm in a similar situation to you with the EN/DCD comparison and "relative fan levels". Good point about charisma/engagement - as you point out - EN brought me "in" - grabbed me, shook me and didn't let go. DCD had moments where I was pulled out of my seat into the music, but you're right the connection wasn't really there.

Indeed I think the last track, where Lisa probably made the most effort to connect directly with the audience, was one of the weaker ones.

On a different tack - one of your old posts mentions an EN tattoo... what do you have? I've had one on my mind for years.

I've got the eagle from Richterskala on my right shoulder. (I took that in a mirror, that is my right shoulder!) I got it done on my 21st birthday so it means a lot to me but it was never very well done and it could do with retouching/tidying up or maybe even covering up with something better.

Are you specifically thinking of getting an EN related tattoo or looking for general inspiration?

Nice shoulder :-)

I suppose like many people I've been thinking "Hmmm a tattoo might be nice. I wonder if I'll ever settle on anything I like" for years (like many other people no doubt!), and the Mensch logo keeps coming as close as anything else.

I decided against the Mensch logo because I'd already seen it on other people but I sometimes think I should have just gone with it.

I've heard of great variations on the Mensch, like a chain of them dancing round someone's ankle!

I know what you mean - the good ideas have already been taken. Bah :-)
