September 25 – Fremont Rocktoberfest, Seattle, WA
The band will be sending postcards from the road to the Impound, starting with this pair from guitarist Ari Joshua and bassist Sandy.
When you’re on the road time stands still.The bags are packed and finally the band is all in one spot. The mission; West Coast tour – Portland, two nights in Idaho, Santa Barbara, LA, San Francisco, and three day desert studio session for album deux at Rancho De Le Luna in Joshua Tree. Ah, no expectations. We hit the highway with gas money and instruments in hand.
“Not gonna make it to the Burn this year, huh, bro?” he said.
That wasn’t the quote of the day, but I’d almost rather not say what it was. If you catch me at a show I’ll be happy to share that with you. If you are reading this blog, and are in one of those cities we are heading to, ask any of us what the quote of the day really was and we’ll be happy to reward you with the answer and a CD.
Big thanks to Juliana and Katie for the hospitality. Day One, mission accomplished. Thank you for flying Air Big High (our bass player’s rig), where there will be no in-flight movies, drinks are always on the house, and rest stops are frequent. (Ari)
The Red Room
About four hours into the drive we were informed we could perform in Boise tonight at The Red Room. So much for camping! I enjoyed the show, although [lead singer] Mesa had no monitors. I thought we played well. After the show we walked down the block to check out the place we’ll be playing tomorrow, with the bars all spilling out into the streets. We packed up the gear, drove ten miles to the hotel and then I showed the band one of my ukulele songs. Its now 4:36 am, and everyone else is passed out and I don’t know how I have the energy to even type this. ZZZ… (Sandy)
