Sandkerwa pictures – Part 2

Saturday, October 27. 2007

Guess, since I already titled a post about Sandkerwa picures as “Part 1” I should come up with the second part. In fact, those pictures are already online in my image gallery for quite some while, but I didn’t find the time to reflect on them. I want to use this post to show you life on the Sandkerwa besides the one you already could see in my previous post.

ThursdayThursday before I threw myself into the “big action” at the Haas Säle, I had the chance to meet my friend Michael and his fiancé Christina at the Stilbruch pub. Somehow I didn't manage to get a picture of Christina, though :-(.

FridayFriday I met DJ Funboy at his venue and afterwards had a nice stroll throughout the festical area. we had a great Netzwerk e.V. get together at the Sodabar, afterwards all of us were partying at the Haas Säle.

SaturdaySaturday I first chilled having a few bears sitting at a window at the Sodabar and later spent quite some time at the Katzenberg with my friends Thomas, Sabine and Fabian. Following Fabian's initiative I had a look at the new opened club "U" but later on ended up at the cm-club.

City Cafe BeachMy Sunday afternoon was spoiled by an endless presentation and I couldn't make it to the blogger meeting in time. But since Jan was playing his lounge music up into the evening I still had the chance to enjoy his music for a few hours at the Sodabar. After taking concert pictures of the Los Chicolores at the Haas Säle I met Katrin and Martin in the streets, and had some drinks outside. Our evening ended at the City cafe.

On Monday I planned to take it easy, but a few friends took me to the "U" club after I finished my picture session at the Haas Säle, and chatting with old friends I stayed there for quite a while.

Sandkerwa - Day 6 – The big after party

Sunday, September 24. 2006

girlsSince I’m already writing about some past incident, I thought I’d also complete the coverage of the Sandkerwa. Although I was home relatively early on Monday I didn’t manage to catch to much restful sleep, so I was not really up for too much party. But since I had been helping the Haas Säle doing their pictures I felt obliged to join the after party for at least a beer. Easily (don’t quite remember how that worked) a few blogger friends could be mobilized to join the party! paule, Scotti, Maddin, Jan and myself joined (some at least to have a beer together). The party was planned to be very small, so Wredo hadn’t bothered to get a DJ – but his old notebook computer containing only weird music. I asked whether we could have some more party tunes, and was immediately recruited being the DJ… Since it was just the job to fill the play list with some suitable tracks it was not too big a burden. Usually there had been several special priced beverages at this after party, but this year Wredo treated us to several rounds of some redcurrant liquor. Although there were just very few people there we had a real good time – even dancing on the tables! At the end it was far later than planned, when we left the Haas Säle being the last guests.

Sandkerwa – Day 5 – @the Glubb / the bike incident

Monday, September 4. 2006

pauleI’ll rather not write too many details on the Sandkerwa-Monday since my vision got slightly blurred on that day ;-) I started slowly and late into the kerwa day meeting paule at the Markushaus around 9pm. Our blogger-friends were already about to finish their first beer when we met them beneath the Markus-bridge. We then headed for the Live-Club since they had the usual Monday’s deal there: all drinks half price!

Strolling through the streets we didn’t meet too many people – no wonder since the weather was quite cold and rainy. Entering the Live-Club we were the first guests there.. Luckily the music of DJ Hannes could entertain us very well. I took the chance and bought the promised liquors for my friends.

Fireworks in BambergDuring the evening I visited the Haas-Säle twice and also managed to see the fireworks from the street. Certainly after the fireworks, the first empty Live-Club got filled by a stream of people and we had a great time celebrating with a lot of friends from

After leaving the Live-Club our next target was the Morph-Club – but lost our Wikinger on the way there. Discussing in front of the Morph-Club whether paule would join us I met a passing acquaintance who was desperately seeking for a bike. Obviously he needed the bike to meet a friend (female) at the “city beach”, which is quite a distance from the Morph-Club. I could be convinced to lend him the bike in exchange for a car key as deposit. When I got back to my friends paule had already headed home. Suddenly I didn’t feel like paying an huge amount of money to enter the Morph-Club and decided to follow paule.

I didn't regret to go home early and the next morning I collected my bike in front of the Morph-Club - like agreed upon - now I only have to arrange a key-axchange with this fella.

Sandkerwa – Day 4 – Los Chicolores / An evening with two remarkable girls

Friday, September 1. 2006

Los Chicolores Haas SäleFor Sunday the Haas-Säle offered something special in contrary to the usual DJ-Parties – one of the most favoured local Bands was playing live there! I arrived quite late at the Kerwa, but you can’t just be there 24/7 (that’s also the reason why I missed the Fischerstechen at the afternoon – I just needed a break!). The performance was really good, and I enjoyed there music. I then went to meet Kerstin and Katrin, with whom I did spent most of the remaining evening. First we toured through the Sandstraße – stopping at the Nelson for some of the tasty liquors there – and later we ended up at the Haas-Säle (of course I had to take some pictures there once more).

girlsSince my girls met some “sweet” swiss guys we went different ways afterwards. Instead of joining to party at the overcrowded Cali, I went for a beer to the cm. This time I didn’t have any trouble to be let in – but I was disappointed when I got down into the club – only two handful of people there – no one at the dance floor. So I left after one beer wanting to have a short glimpse at the discotheque Hörsaal, there I met the manager and had a discussion about this issue.

Header picture sandkerwa P.S. The dynasty of the wyrd sisters, who occupied my blog header for over a month, is over. Currently there is a very recent picture taken at the Sandkerwa there.

Sandkerwa – Day 3 – The Funk Bunnys and the sausage story pt. 2

Sunday, August 27. 2006

Bee and PauleUnluckily I can’t yet give you a detailed report on yesterdays events.. This will have to wait until tomorrow. But feel free to have a look at the pictures of the Haas-Säle and on my personal picture until tomorrow!

Edit 29.08. here are the announced stories: One of your fellow bloggers out of Bamberg’s blogosphere was performing being a DJ with the “Funk Bunnies. So we called up for a blogger meeting at the Soda Bar. Many bloggers and friends took the DJ Dr. Jan Schmidtchance to appear there and enjoy the excellent electro funk music there. Unluckily I missed quite a part of the evening since I was on tour at the Haas-Säle to take pictures there. Having an appointment with my “sausage crew” at 1am, I left my blogger friends at this time. Meeting up with Tim, Tanja, Robert, Anna, To, S. and Karsten - and we had our snack consisting of “Krakauer” sausages in front of the Live-Club. It had very well worked – although Robert did almost forget about the bread (but luckily there was a bakery at the Sandstraße..). Guess we won’t forget this picnic that fast.

Searching for a party location we made a short tour through “Schranne 7” passed by the City Café, were annoyed by the music at the Il Centro and ended up drinking some beers and dancing at the Sternla. When the party was almost over there Karsten managed to draw me into the Green Goose to have a good night beer there.. ok.. Green Goose.. no further comment about this..
