Mart Infanger is a great poster artist, art instructor, musician and world class host. After partying down with all the great artists in Zurich the night before, he sheepishly asked if it would be okay if we took a hike in the mountains, and Lindsey and I were super stoked to say, “Yes!” We crossed beautiful Luzern by the lake by small rail and walking…
Took a gondola up to the mid-point of Mount Pilatus, named after the dragon who is fabled to live there (the mountain was shaped like a crouched dragon with wings folded against the ground) so cool! Mart told us how supposed socerers who came to Luzern in the Middle Ages were called “Venetians,” because the Venetians were just through the pass yonder and brought advanced gadgets and ideas.
We took a good long hike through the woods at the foot of Pilatus. Met the old man of the forest.
Took in the view and went to have lunch in the sun. I had JÃ¤ger, Spatzli, and Red Cabbage, great fall food!
Totally refreshed we descended back down into Luzern to set up our show at The Metzgerhalle, a great rock club in the heart of Luzern.
Here’s some shots from the night. You can see a progression here. Connect the dots. Great night!
