Thanks to the Egg’s touring violinist, Ken Matsuda, here’s a sweet overview of our adventures around Germany last July. The song, “I Turn Automatic,” comes from the first few minutes of our first show, at the Station in Püttlingen, before a crowd of 450 Saarlanders. It’s not perfect. But there’s something about that moment, when we were nervous and just starting out, that’s harder to replicate than playing it perfectly anyway. Two-plus hours and something like 30 songs later, we got the standing O. What a beautiful night it was.
