The Dandy Warhols (American alternative rock band), Düsseldorf, April 2012
Attended with group (12 people). Pre-drinks at local bar, and beers on the tram to venue. Standing room only. 300 in attendance (estimate).
There are a lot of white people wearing t-shirts of bands I’ve never heard of. They seem relaxed, not drunk, as everyone holds a plastic cup of beer. We are in the bar room attached to Zakk concert hall. Many wear new jeans that cover the tops of unscuffed boots. The only signs of diversity seem to be in our group. Fernando and Alfonso and the four girls they brought with them are all from Spain. Collectively, we are the loudest people here. We receive the occasional stare from members of the music crowd, but so what?
