Goodbye China!

Beijing seems like a wet, cool, calm oasis after the hot chaos of Wuhan. This city – with its wide lonely streets, large embassy buildings, clusters of narrow trees, and abundance of white people – feels very different from the last few days. Not better, by any means, just different. And that is what has been so great about this tour: the chance to experience some of the diversity of China. Tonight we played our last show of the tour – another strange, but interesting venue and another wonderful, enthusiastic crowd. 2 Kolegas, a small club that shares a beautiful garden space with a drive-in movie theatre, had a great beer selection, a foosball table and lots of lively cartoons of naked people dancing. When we took the stage with excitement for our last show, unfortunately and ironically it became clear that this last show wouldn’t be our best (we had some technical problems, sound issues, and Adam hit Jocelyn in the face with his guitar while dancing around on the small stage!). But the crowd was lovely and we had a chance to meet many of them afterwards – people from China and all over the world. And that has been the most important element of this whole adventure: connecting with people from different countries and cultures. Music is a common language through which we can all share the joy, fear, and wonder of being alive and being human. Thank you for having us, China! We can’t wait to see you again! –Antonia
