MMC - Moka Metal Crew #9. A reunion concert night with our friends and peers that we all started this Latvian heavy rock thing with some years earlier. With bands: Pūķa Gars, The Blackout (dudes actually reunited specially for that night after they had quited some years ago), The Factor, Crow Mother and Art Of Keeping Secrets. Special thanks to Kaspars Petersons (our first, now ex-bass man) for joining us on stage for an Anthrax tune. Our whole set actually consisted only with covers of our favourites from AC DC, Kiss, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Trouble, Guns N Roses, Skid Row, Pantera (an exception for that night only).
November 11 - on the night when Latvians commemorate freedom fighters of the Latvian War of Independence (1919) - we had a colossal opportunity to open for German heavy metal legends - ACCEPT with them having a first time show in Latvia. Not to mention the chance to meet with one of our favourite metal bands. Thanks for the photos to Līga Kažemaka, Kristaps Ēberliņš.

Saturday night after a show in Šiauliai (LT) we went to Vilnius\' club Route 66. Rocked out with local bands Rubber Bullets and Roadkill. Celebrated Roadkill guitarist\'s Daniel\'s birthday and had a great time what so ever. Thanks to Roadkill bass guy Kipras for having us over at his place!
Our local Latvian open-air festival during August 26-27. On the second day after a nice swim in the nearby lake we took the stage in daylight, which doesn\'t happen that often. This year Latvian festcore people had also the chance to see one of the biggest Latvian heavy metal acts - Skyforger.
Liepaja (Lv). This year the fetival supported 6 stages. August 13 - we had the chance to play on one of the main stages - Gypsy Camp, which is open-air at the hotel\'s back yard. As usual the line-up for the festival held a lot of bands from around the world, like Torture Squad (Brasil), Phonomik (Denmark), Moses Hazy (Finland), Tor Peders Kapell (Sweden), Mr Fontaine himself with his band Starlight Searchers and others.
