USA Flag

So we’re off to the U.S.A for a holiday in August, heading up from downunder. I’ve never been to the U.S.A before. Main reason for the holiday is to see Depeche Mode live in New York. One of my all time fave bands and I’ve never seen them play live before. We’re going to both their Madison Square Garden concerts, excitement!

Depeche Mode - Tour Of The Universe 2009

I’m looking forward to having a holiday too, I’ve not had a decent break since our Europe trip in 2007. We’re spending the most time in New York, visiting Philadelphia for a day, and spending an extended w/end in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

It’s pure luck that we’re also getting to see our fave German minimal DJ/producer from Berlin, Steve Bug play in San Francisco and Los Angeles on the w/ends we’re there. We also get to see probably our most fave producer, Los Angeles based John Tejada play as well, in Chicago and with Steve Bug in San Francisco, woot!

No shortage of other minimal/tech-house/techno things happening to get out to whilst we’re in the New York, if we still have the energy after sight-seeing all day, below is what we’re planning to get out to.
