Shikari, Ação Direta @ Papirna, Praha CZE 22 September 2001
Michael: This one was supposed to take place in the famous Klub 007 but was canceled last minute because of a fire. So it was moved to this place. A squat in the basement of a flat. A really strange concertlocation with tons of people living right above it. Since there was no poster/flyer, there was almost no people. After the concert, the Shikari guys drove back home and we met Jocke from Wolfpack and spent the nite talking about the ins and outs of our scenes.
From the bacteria.nl website: We’re doing some dates with ACAO DIRETA in Eastern Europe. I’m with AD in the Cavia Express I, the rest of SHIKARI is travelling by car. Near the squat they get stopped by the cops and forced to pay a fine. The price seems to be negotiable. After paying, the money disappears in the backpocket of the pig. This show was originally organised in the 007 Club but had to be moved at the last minute to the Papirna squat because 007 had a fire and was not ready for shows yet. Consequence is not many people show up (very bitter for AD coz they payed big cash for VISAS for this one and only Czech gig), and the sound is so fucked that we get totally confused while playing. Also the police shows up a couple times with some angry looking dogs. This squat is situated in the basement and backyard of a flat so neightbours always turn up and pass the squatted area to get to their apartment. While the rest of SHIKARI decide to drive back home, we hang out the entire night with Jocke/WOLFPACK and his friend. Nice finish nevertheless.
