Hard Lessons make mad Euros.

by

The Hard Lessons do Europe this September, hitting cities like Berlin, Hamburg, and Cologne with Motion City Soundtrack - one of the only decent reps of the current pop/punk/emo crop - and crafty viral marketers OK GO.

How will the Germans respond to Augie's Who Came First-era Pete Townshend beard? But more importantly, with these first German shows, massive arena concerts are the inevitable next step for the Hard Lessons. I mean, you can't play a gig in the Scorpions' home country and not let their rock rub off on you. Film the whole thing in watery VHS, and smell the three-quarter sleeve!

I propose that the Hard Lessons learn a Scorps cover for the trip. Even better, they could cover the slinking, classic title track to Accept's 1984 album Balls to the Wall, with a lead vocal by Miss Ko Ko Louise. Korin's always been cooler than Udo Dirkschneider, anyway.

Ich nehme milch und zucker in meinem tee!
