Around The World in 80 Decibels: A European Tour Diary from Otto von Schirach
Otto von Schirach & Nastie - Budapest, 2008
to all my friends in the Bermuda Triangle, this is your boy, The
Notorious Nastie. I am very excited to announce that this special New
Times blog has been established to document the Otto von Schirach
Speakermelt Tour. We will be spreading the power of Bass to many
countries in Europe, on this planet Earth.
Otto and I arrive at our first city on the tour at 8 a.m., which
works out perfectly because Belgium really does have the best waffles. The
second stop on Bass Train Express is Paris. Otto keeps talking
about going down into the catacombs with DJ Urine and it scares me.
Last time Otto was in Paris, we played an old underground bunker and
the show was ridiculous. This time, along with Paris, we are playing
Strasbourg, which Otto describes as a "black, metal, medieval city with
rivers running through it and water traveling direct from the Bermuda
triangle." I asked him how are we getting to the first show and he
said unicorns bro, unicorns.
Fantasy transportation aside, Otto von Schirach and
I invite you to share in our musical inquisition
on this, the closest planet to the sun. Voyage with us to cities like
Berlin and Budapest, as we introduce the spirit of the triangle and the
audible power of the Ocho Ojos. We invite you to read about all the
amazing adventures, watch videos capturing the spirit of the fans, and
photos that encapsulate the essence of the tour. I implore you my
honeys and hoods, to pack a bag in your mind and travel far, far from
the Bermuda Triangle to alien lands, as we go on tour with Otto Von
The Notorious Nastie
