THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART (USA)
Date: 12th of November 2012
Place: Rosebud Books, Helsinki
One night before our session with indie rock group The Pains of Being Pure at Heart we received a phone call. The band had missed their boat in Stockholm and it wasn’t sure if they would make it to Helsinki in time.
Next morning we got another call: Luckily TPOBPAH had managed to book ferry tickets to city of Turku. During the first hours of that same day they had driven all the way to Helsinki.
Our original plan was to have a session in traditional market café in Kauppatori. Unfortunately it wasn’t our lucky day: freezing November wind was blowing so hard it was basically impossible to play/record live music outdoors. Once again it was time for plan B.
Just few minutes later we were on our way to the next stop: local bookstore Rosebud. Despite of the short notice, lovely Jemina let us in and even served us some fresh cooked coffee and cookies.
It was a fresh start to that day. And eventually it was a good day indeed.
