6/23/01 Southside Festival
...we cruised out from Stuttgart for about 2 hours into the countryside, finally arriving at the Southside festival site. Like a lot of festivals, this one took place out in the middle of seemed to be an arbitrarily picked large field. Everywhere there were tents and trucks and port-a-potties. The crowd, which slowly swelled ever larger as the guys played, went totally ballistic. These fans really get into their shows out here! The warm southern Germany sun beat down on everything, inspiring what appeared to be a lot of beer consumption.
After the show there were a series of interviews, including a TV interview by Viva 2's Nils Ruff with Pat and Rivers (see photo).
