Seein’Red, Timex, Bullies + 1 @ Kasa Praça Espanha, Lisboa POR 26 December 1999
After a good breakfast and lotsa strong coffee, it’s off to Lisboa, about 650 km’s to the far west. Pepino’s coming with us. He has to play his last concert with Sin Dios tomorrow. It’s good to have some time with him and talk about what happened the last couple months. We arrive late but see it hasn’t started yet. The building has been squatted for 2 years and is really beautiful. It has changed quite a lot since we were here in October 1999. They have some problems with municipality and now they try to do their best to get the support of the neighbourhood. Consequently we see it has been nicely painted and cleaned!! Also the concertvisitors are kept off the street to avoid any noise pollution. It’s crowded inside the squat. The concert takes place in some kind of tiny shed next to the building. When the first band starts (forgot the name but it’s sounds like good crossover) we get some food and meet people we met on our last visit here. I pick up Timex, a young straight-edge youthcrew band that plays very enthusiast with a lot of infectious pleasure. There’s close crowd-participation coz there’s almost no stage and the place is packed. Seein’Red’s propagations come across very well. It helps there’s no present language barrier. The very mixed crowd are having a good time.
