The War On Drugs

The Loppen club in Christiania is already filling with people when we head out with The War On Drugs to do a little offstage recording. A location inside the anarchist freetown is tempting, but they’re not too happy about cameras there, and it’s also – in the absence of any street lights – completely dark. So we cross the street and walk into the backyard of Christianshavn School, where the gate is still open and a decently lit wooden bike shed allures us. The “highly-praised”: Philadelphia band sets up their gear and singer Adam enjoys playing with the feedback from our tiny Marshall amp („Can I use this for the show?“, he asks, and indeed we see him experimenting with the 1-watt amp later on stage). They start off the session with a great semi-acoustic rendition of „Brothers“ and continue with „Best Night“, the opener of their 2011 album „Slave Ambient“. The longer they play the more they get into it, but unfortunately we cannot extend the bike-shed show any longer because an already packed venue is waiting for them to hit the stage.
