Leave hotel in Montreux at 6am, everyone heads to their bunks. Arrive at Interlaken around 9am, show is on a small airstrip in a valley surrounded by the Alps. Beautiful, maybe Heidi will come to the show :) Have breakfast, load-in, work for about an hour and I'm done. We don't go on till 10pm, lots of waiting around today.

After lunch, spend a few hours helping our carpenter build something for the set, beats being bored. Catch a couple of songs from Fantomas, a supergroup lead by Mike Patton of Faith No More, with Terry Bozzio (Zappa, Missing Persons) and Buzz Osbourne of the Melvins. Pretty cool, but arty and out there. Check out this pic of Terry's drumkit. Insane!! After that its time for a power nap and then catch most of The Hellacopters set (awesome Swedish band) before heading to dinner. It's been raining off and on all day, the storm I saw in Montreux last night apparently caused NIN and others to cancel here last night. Hope it clears up for our show.

Work through Jimmy Eat World's set, as it clears up. Then we're on and the guys play a great show, for just having 5 days off. Load-out and back to Barcelona tonight for an arena show on Monday.
