Tour Day 4; Blog Day 1
November 4, 2015
Better late than never.
I probably should’ve started this on Day 1, but alas, I’m perpetually on rock ‘n’ roll time. Hello, readers. Nick the drummer here. I’ll be attempting to blog this 12-day November jaunt from the road (Wi-Fi willing).
We’re currently rolling down a very cloud, occasionally rainy, 85 South corridor en route to Athens, Ga., for tonight’s gig at Flicker Bar with Sound of Ceres and Spaceflyte (featuring members of Apples in Stereo). We made the first of probably many Waffle House stops, a welcome respite from a diet of Lays, Inc. products thus far.
And now the Happy Recap from the past 3 days.
Last night in Raleigh, we rocked the very cool Slim's. Our good buddy Mikey of The Everymen opened the show, tearing it up solo with electric guitar. Make Light made the hour trek from Winston-Salem to close the show with their ethereal pop sounds. We met a slew of super nice, cool people--shouts out to Mike from Drag Sounds, Ricky Bacchus of Richard Bacchus & The Luckiest Girls, and Joel the door guy.
Monday night’s gig was in Bethlehem, Pa., at Shards, a fantastic-sounding, super groovy studio run by Matt and Josh of Voirvoir. Those two came through in a big way for us last night, as our gig at the Funhouse (located right near Shards) fell through at the last minute. Matt and Josh called a handful of (very supportive) friends, and voila, we had a gig. The show was recorded for broadcast on their show Tape Swap, which can be heard on their local NPR station, WDIY. The room sounded great, felt great. Also great were the cans of their local exotic brew, Yuengling. Thanks, guys. We had a blast!
Day 1 found us at The Grand Victory in Brooklyn, playing the Sunday night after Halloween. We had a pretty good turnout of folks ready to rock on a school night, as well as a slate of killer bands. Opening the show was Superpony, playing the first show and led by Tommy Unish (he of Sighs fame). Super cool, catchy tunes awash in Tommy’s arsenal of effects and furious guitar playing. Hey Anna followed, delivering an impressive set of beautiful, driving dancepop tunes. Check out their latest album; it’s stellar. Our good buddies outta New Brunswick, Sink Tapes, rocked next, with a set of some old favorites and killer new tunes. We’d played with these guys all summer long and it was awesome to share a stage again.
Well, if you made it this far, good on you! I promise the next one won't be novel-length. It's still cloudy out here on 85 South. See ya on the flip!
