Esakallion matka



P.S.

If you happen to be at Wien, Austria you might be interested of the DotDotDot film event. On Thursday 18th of August there will be screening with a film called Tango Finlandia directed by two guys very active in our band (and also acting small parts in the film). One of the directors will be there presenting the film so if you see someone like our merchandise guy there he probably is the same dude, just with different role and different name. Give him some nice humppa greetings!

May update

Hi! See us 360 degrees from our last Helsinki gig!
