It is always great fun when Joke come to town (and this ain't no joke), so as they are currently touring the region, you better chuck in the towel, grab a beer (which I couldn't as I was still on antibiotics), go to their concert, have fun and worry about tomorrow and all the serious stuff when the time comes for it (it is summer after all).

Trnfest - 1st day of the edition that never happened

Supposedly this year's Trnfest is never going to happen. Last year was the last one ever. So roughly a week after it would have started if it would have happened (but which it is not, might I remind you)  we all miraculously gathered at KUD to convince ourselves that it is truly not happening. So what we did not see was the new director of KUD (above) recite a poem and share a few words with us...
 ...we certainly didn't see Brane (iz Ljubljane) perform his antics on stage (nor did we hear him recite his deep and meaningful poetry)...

...nor did we see Katjuša the cat wondering across stage...
    However we did see bat(wo)man sleeping in the cave
 while listening to the soothing sound of the accordion
   and the slightly rougher sounds of the guitar.

 (And this is some of us later on in the evening... not bad for a non-event, eh?)

Joss Stone

When one Stone comes to town, the rest seem to follow shortly. So when there was a small Stone reunion in Ljubljana (hi everyone, it was really lovely to see all of you) Joss (and yes, I know she is not really a Stone, but the story would be totally ruined if I took that into account - blast, I've done it again) acted like any true Stone would and traveled hundreds of miles just to join in the small family celebration.
Joss, now that I know you have leant two Slovene words, I better use them both to sign off: hvala for the great concert and oprosti for dragging you into this mess of a blog entry (but hey, the picture ain't half bad, what do you say?).
