    Hey there, new listener from Sweden here.
    Literally minutes after i hung up the phone after having to cancel my bands gig on my nephews wedding party this show pops up in my pod-flow.
    Reasons for the cancellation: members being unable to make it because life happens. There was (obviously) no money involved and I feel bad for them having to re-think their evening. (We’re just an amateur band playing for fun, all members have full-time jobs, commutes and families)
    Thanks for a brilliant podcast about live performances and that kind of life. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while.
    Will listen through your whole back catalog, really like your vibe.
