Happy Birthday, Queen and Bruce.

Queen: I'm about to turn 34 and, gosh, I've never felt so young.

Well, young, ok, but breathless when I have to jump 2-hour-long concert. It's not the age, but the weight... :(

Let's see if I can resist jumping all over the front row tomorrow. I'm going to see the Minds in Razzmatazz (Barcelona). Longing to see AFGM also soon :D

See you, young people!!!

Our very own Snow Queen... Hope you are enjoying the stuff.. Looks like we are ready for some slush here, unless it freezes.. Then we could be in for some serious ice-skating..

Hi, Your Majesty!

No snow in Catalonia, but about 18-20º C at noon.

But if you travel further to the inner country, I think they don't need any more snow.

Me, however, I like to play with snow, but little snow storms fall on this land really.

Kisses :*

www.salarazzmatazz.com (sorry, only in Spanish by now. Maybe info in English can be found on pages as www.bcn.es or www.lanetro.com).

It was an old factory and warehouse in the northern side of the city, not far from the beach, in an old decrepit industrial quarter, now a nice place to go to a disco, pub or venue. It has five rooms, the biggest one, the one where the Minds are going to play, with a capacity of 3,000 people. Nice acoustic. One of the most influent places where shows are programmed, ranging from Pulp to... The Chieftains :)
