Going east with Das Boot

I recently got back from the Das Boot cruise, which went from Stockholm to Tallinn, Estonia. The main event onboard was of course the live gigs by Infected Mushroom, VNV Nation, Spetsnaz, Project Rotten, Autodafeh, Aesthetic Perfection, Spark, SPOCK, Kopfer Kat and more bands.

Except for Infected Mushroom, the rest of the bands were EBM, synth and other lovely genres.

Project Rotten Project Rotten is less rotten than you think.

By standing a bit away from the stage for a change, I managed to get a non-shaky video of my favorite song by Infected Mushroom. Have a look at the excerpt in HD:

We also had some time in Tallinn, so we walked the plank and sniffed out the location of the infamous Depeche Mode Baar. I guess the poor bartender never knew what hit him as dozens of Swedes in black came looking for beer in broad daylight.

I also enjoyed walking along narrow alleys in the old town and looking at the medieval buildings. It felt like a mix between Riga and Visby.
