Currently at the norva in norfolk, virginia making our way up the east coast, from hot weather to cold weather is how i'm looking at it. the trajectory is the west coast and then off to japen to lust over technology and play with rise gainst and nofx . right now we are sharing the tour with the expendables and the flatliners both sets of dudes are great and bands to match. The florida shows went off with full houses, smokey rooms, and some set lists that had a bunch of my fellow twitters going crazy, i've been posting nightly setlists on my twiiter account, along with some not so lon winded quips and some normal daily routines like trying to find a clean bathroom and how life on tour either smells like piss or pot smoke.
the florida shows always have alot of family and friends, lots of "how are you"'s and " great to see you" 's, it is all rather mundane and sweaty handshakes but peppered with seeing some great people and solid freiends. it never ceases to amaze me when i get on stage of places that i used to see shows at when i was young. standing on the stage of jannus landing, remembering social distortion, or youth of today, or agnostic front or seeing the ramones there.. just the walk down memory lane is inspiring and mind blowing.
i have been finding out more details on south america and in some fun facts i found out is that one in ten white men get kidnapped in columbia, and we are travelling with ten people, does that mean one of us will be held for money while the other 9 are frolicing free getting offered pure rock cocaine and drinking mas mojitos? if it does- i hope i'm in the 9.
the show last night was good, hot club mixed with old and new friends, just like things ought to be. we dusted off some gems, brought out a few new ones off GNV/FLA, a few covers and an hour and 25 minutes later it was all afterglow.
