I thought that one of the disappointing things about going to Scotland this summer was that it would be the only place I visited without any live music (due to Covid restrictions, which are generally less in Europe than in the USA unless you are in the UK). However, during a tour I was on to the Isle of Skye, my tour guide played a great band from his hometown called “Mad Ferret”. He sort of DJed the songs he played on the bus and mentioned that Mad Ferret was playing the following night in Edinburgh. I went online and quickly grabbed up tickets for us before it sold out. The show ended up being the first allowed live music in Edinburgh in almost 18 months, and virtually everyone there was seeing live music for the first time in ages and freaking out. An amazing evening!

Today’s photo is from a week ago. I saw Alien Force again last night at Metal Magic, but haven’t had a chance to look at those photos yet.

Alien Force is one of many old-school (mostly) Danish metal bands that have been resurrected or at least revived in recent years. From The Vaults is not only releasing old material from these bands; they are also funding the creation of new albums by these bands that haven’t released anything in decades. For instance, Alien Force has a new album coming out. Their first since I graduated from high school, and I am no spring chicken. I missed my 30-year high school reunion many years ago.

Only four teams remain in the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship (UEFA Euro 2020 held in 2021). Denmark is the biggest underdog and Cinderella story. Beating England at Wembley Stadium is going to require another miracle.
