So I am sitting here at Stage on Herr, in the green room where we made a bedroom, enjoying the vibes in Harrisburg PA.
John (the owner of this crazy amazing place) has been so kind, so welcoming, and so accommodating to us. He’s fed us, given us tours of the town and shared some great stories about his life here in Harrisburg. Tonight is our last night here and I’ll look forward to coming back to Stage on Herr.
On the first night of tour I got the “first night of tour cold/sickness” , that seems to be a trend with me. Thanks motel in the ghetto of Knoxville for doin the honors on this one. I am finally getting over the flemmy part of the cold.
After knoxville we went to morristown TN where we played The Downtown. Coolest little bar/venue ever. You know how you usually find these bar wanna be venues, where “everything is about the music” in a cheesy way to the point where no one wants to go there? Well this place finally got that “everything about the music” thing right. Awesome sound, awesome lights, awesome room, great drinks/drink specials and above all, great owners and operators. I would have never thought that place existed in TN. Alan, thanks got a great night and thanks for the hospitality.
Then we drove to VA. We had to cancel our show in Roanoke because I was so sick no actual sound was coming out of my mouth. I hate canceling. The next day we drove Staunton, where we drove around for hours in circles calling the venue and the owner of the venue only to find out that it has closed down months ago(WTF?!?people seriously?why wouldn’t you send out a mass email saying- hey, we no longer exist, don’t spend the last of your gas money for nothing). Anyway, the Darjeeling cafe does not exist. That was pointless and I was pretty mad.
Yesterday we drove here, to Harrisburg and had an absolutely FANTASTIC time. It sounds sappy, but guys, when away from home, you’re lucky to get hospitality. This was hospitality at it’s finest.
I’m the morning we are off to Philly -another place I’ve never been.
I’ve been taking tons of videos and photos on the camera that was donated to us (thankyou!), but I apparently didn’t get the right USB cable so I can’t upload it to my crappy computer. Looks like ima gonna have to have you guys wait again on seeing those.
Love you all. Don’t forget about us, well be home soon.
