Touring Europe with Berkeley, CA’s STREET EATERS!
Tour report and photos by Megan March and John No.
In the fall of 2014, STREET EATERS went on our second tour of Europe. We released our new album Blood::Muscles::Bones in Europe on Cologne’s Contraszt! Records and in North America on Nervous Intent Records. We booked the tour ourselves, and played shows pretty much every night for almost two months straight in eleven countries from the UK to Germany to Spain to Serbia.
We played with a lot of excellent bands, and we tried to document them for this tour report as much as possible with our limited means to bring back to the bay area and share with our ever-intrepid local punk rag, MRR. We are not professional photographers and a lot of the videos and photos we took were shot with a cheap-ass camera phone in some seriously dark spaces, so sorry if they are a little blurry or blown-out or whatnot. Still, the ones you see here are good enough for the internet and I think they get the point across, and can give you a peek at some excellent bands that you might have heard of but not actually seen.
A lot of these bands can be heard on a new compilation tape called Frequency of the Truewave that you can listen to online and/or mailorder direct at Nervous Intent Records (North America) or Contraszt! Records (Europe).
