International Woman’s Day!

So yep, today I gigged my white girl booty of at Kulturhuset Skövde, of course in honor of march 8th, including Wasps and Black Bride in my playlist. Walking onto set for preps, I was a little worried. “Wow, this room is empty. Is it gonna change?” Turns out, it was because the peoples of Skövde where out on the 15:52 demonstration, and the whole thing actually ended in Kulturhuset. So … You can call the room NOT empty the second the demonstration was over! 😉

What felt extra awesome was that I was performing for likeminded people, which OK, I do a lot of the time, but this was really like a whole day and a whole crowd expressing themselves like I do! Which is why I said yes in the first place, I figured Ung Vänster and March 8th was bound to be good. And I sold albums and even a few packages! (Both of the albums together). Some of my new fb-fans I haven’t met before came to watch as well, always nice to see those faces in real life.

And while I’ve had stressful weeks, not been 100% the whole time, it was like getting new energy. Performing and being out playing always does that to me! I worked out extra hard for this one, sitting on my exercise bike for an hour, high resistance while singing, just to get those lungs to top notch stamina. Music is hard work, it is!

Anyways, putting together a live video, filmed from backstage so def. an interesting angle. Will link to it here as soon as I’m finished.
