Tour 2014: Ireland, Germany, England

I realized I never posted any photos from the recent tour I filmed with Crowd Deterrent a month ago. We visited Ireland, Germany, and England. The full tour video should be posted later this summer. For now, here are some random photos I took on the trip.

Germany 2013

Downpour went to Germany earlier this year to film Crowd Deterrent’s week long tour. After a lot of editing I finally have the finished project ready to roll. It’s a bit long clocking in at fifty some minutes, but I think it sums the trip up pretty well. I met a lot of great people over there and couldn’t have had a better time.

Punk Rock House Party Volume 2 – GERMANY

So this year has been extremely busy. One reason, a little bit of traveling.

I headed to Germany with Crowd Deterrent for a little over a week. While filming the documentary we also filmed a Punk Rock House Party at a flat in Germany.

The concert might not look like it’s a house but I assure you we were definitely in someone’s house. They were throwing a party for all the Crowd Deterrent dudes. The show was really good, and the after party was… strange. Hallways packed with people hanging out, strange dance parties in bedrooms with glow sticks, and lots of Kabobs. Anyway, you can check out the night below.

One of the most speechless/disturbing/sad moments in my life was visiting a concentration camp. The specific one we visited was for military prisoners. The photo above were the actual ovens used to cremate people after they had been in the gas chambers. 3 to 4 bodies were placed in each oven. Unreal.

Japan – Overall

Here are some pictures from Japan taken with my phone over the whole trip. Some of them might have been posted on my Old Saw Tumblr thing but that’s okay.

Octopus Balls. Bits of octopus put into a dough ball covered with onions and some amazing sauce. One of my favorite meals on the trip.

Chocolate banana pizza and squid ink pizza. Both delicious.

As far as meals were concerned, this was it for me. The best. I think it costed six dollars and was so filling and tasty. Noodle bowl with dumplings and side salad and Japanese Hi-C (yes, it tastes better than American Hi-C, I don’t care if someone told me it was the same, for some reason it just tasted better).

Japanese pastries beat out American pastries as well.
