german music: sportfreunde stiller

There's a big music festival going on in Karlsruhe this weekend called Das Fest. Lots of well-known musicians come and play all weekend and the best part about it is that it's all free!

One of Karl's favorite German bands, Sportfreunde Stiller, was playing last night so he went to watch them (I didn't feel up to all the crowds, so I stayed home watching Friends and quilting).

Sportfreunde Stiller is three guys from Munich...



...who use to play soccer together. Their best known song is actually an annoyingly catchy song about German soccer (which we've been hearing a lot lately with the Euro Championship recently ended). But their other stuff is pretty good. I've always thought of them with a typically cheery German sound.

Wow! Sportfreunde Stiller is one of the greatest modern-day German rock bands ever! Much better than those stupid 15-year-old German/Japanese girls called tokyo hotel (what kind of a stupid name is that anyway?!?!) Your husband is the luckiest guy ever to get to go see them for free! I bet he has the best taste in music, and he's probably not that bad lookin' either. You guys keep rockin'! Good German rock rocks!! Wooo-ooo!

During the World Cup in Berlin I couldn't go two seconds without hearing Sportfreunde Stiller! I'm glad you got to see them in concert - it looks like a lot of fun! Karl obviously had a really great time : )
