But really, it doesn’t seem to end! Set sail for Indianapolis, Indiana for a show at the General Public Collective, which is a sweet art/clothing/book/performance space founded by some cool folks. We forget that there is a time change BUT apparently our show is an hour later than we initially thought anyway.. so it all works out!
Jesus, Denny’s, and box buildings.
Have a wonderful show for the General Public Collective crowd. Our inner-wizards, Paisley and Robert, made their debut. There were even some very awesome minors in the crowd - gotta teach the kids about herpes! After our show, had a performance by the badass ladies of HEN.
This is from Chicago, but is too good not to be in the blog.
Stayed with Lisa of Hen, and her cat Debbie. Spend all of the next day trying to get through PR. Blergh. So close to being done
forever until next tour.
Debbie Da Cat
After an R&R evening of reading (we forgot what that was), we head east (once again) to Columbus, and our good friend Denis. Sommer Sterud made us laugh, and then Slam Up did an intimate performance for friends.
The next day was a (P)Repeat of our work day in Indy. Have a drink with our new B&B friend connection Kamal and James. Pass. Out.
HOMEWARD bound. Kinda. Have a show in Rochester. Friends Jenna and Eric come out! And a few people who found us in the paper! The staff at the Park Ave. Boulder Coffee Co. location are wonderful! Could see them dancing all the way in the back. Spend the evening and morning being welcomed by the Wagner family (thanks, sweet baby Ray!), before taking the short drive to Syracuse for some Funk n’ Waffles.
We didn’t start the fire!
But first chili and cornbread with the Dunns. Thanks Pat for hooking that up! We all make our way to the venue to see Mark Bowers do his thing! Another wonderfully intimate show with friends.
Sunday Brunchday with the Dunns. Nothing like a homemade omelet: we need fuel for sitting in the car haha. Make it to Schenectady and hangout at the New Orleans Café. It does not feel like New Orleans at all. Do a few numbers for the Moon & River’s open mic and then hang out with our new friends Amy and Mike of Shift the Paradigm.
We don’t know how to smile. :)
Spend Monday watching Rio 2 (the only movies we have seen on this tour have been Rio, Rio 2, and Liquid Sky, and I would like to keep it that way), eating candy, and doing taxes (kind of). Friends Rose and Helen from couch surfing show up, and Bridget Dunn! Again! Friend groupie status! So obviously it was a wonderful show. New York State has treated us well. See you REALLY soon, New York, aka APRIL 27th IN MANHATTAN, buy your tickets HERE friends!
Thank you Rose for hangin with us & showing us the best Moroccan food!
