I Am Three

Adam Irving, avid KUR reader and member of I Am Three needs your help:

In October me and my friend, performing under the name I Am Three are driving round Europe gigging. We intend to drop by Belgium, Netherlands, Holland, Germany, France and Italy. The tour isn’t for the purpose of making money its simply because we love music and playing in new places. […] after hundreds of emails to venues such as cafes/bars/clubs etc we only have the Italy gigs sorted. In all these cafe bar filled countries, NOBODY seems to want to invite a double bass & acoustic guitar duo loose on their stage, even for free.

They’re good though; just give their myspace page a listen. So: any European club-owning music lovers reading this willing to book them? Go on then!

Where Are We?

Okay, you (we?) think you’re a “community”, right? But do we know where WE are at all? Here’s a quiz for you, a game with which you can “develop a mental map of Europe“. You think you know this continent, right? Now try to find Estonia (or the faraway country of Belgium – ever heard of that one?), or tell the name of the capital of Montenegro! Hah! The upper levels are really tough!

Okay, if you have some more time, you can go on with the 50 states of the USA  (me: 60%, average error: 252 miles…) – or play Statetris Europe!
