This week, the band played shows in Lisbon and Porto–they also seem to have eaten a lot of tapas. More pictures of cheese, guys! I want to see the cheese.
Claudia, Shirley, reflection.
Stephin had some phone interviews.
Sam, hair, lobby.
A local delicacy–baked apple, as eaten by Stephin Merritt.
Seems like a good reason to me.
Stephin’s hotel room happened to be on the very corner of the universe.
Sleepy Eve, with Beatles bear.
I am so into these pigtails, it’s crazy.
Band on the run.
This is the factory where cellists come from. There’s a Sam inside each of these cases.
I think this is Porto, but I KNOW it’s cute.
This is one wild venue.
Maybe we should all have animal-print walls.
Claudia and Shirley had their own dressing room. Fan-cy!
May Day protests. I think they were also protesting the lack of an adorable merch team.
Portugal seems like a hard place to be a vegan.
But so lovely!
Now that would be quite a double bill.
Banned from playing anything off of Distortion and/or Realism. Ah well.
Next stop, Spain! More tapas! More photographs of food, por favor.
P.S. This is how we’re doing here at home.
