The sun’s shining over the James.
It’s morning in Richmond, and this city is turning into quite the experience. We got here, and it was kinda quiet, so we did some walking around, but it turns out EVERYTHING closes at 6:00 PM. We managed to sneak into a record store called Steady Sounds just before close for some sweet browsing. Sadley, (fortunately if you’re my bank account) there were no New Order records. Just being in the town where AVAIL, Strike Anywhere, Pg. 99, Inquisition, GULL(!!!!)and many many more bands are from is beyond cool. Or cool beyond words even.
I wish we had pictures posted to show you all the ridiculous things we’ve seen so far. We tossed animal crackers into each other’s mouths with Run, Forever. We saw Pedals on our pirate ships destroy in a basement. We played our first basement show ever! We get to the house we’ra staying at, and get to watch a juggling performance. The list goes on and on. I think a travel zine is in order for sure.
We did discover that our power steering doesn’t really feel like working, so we’ve had a slight hiccup, but fortunately we have the day off, and tomorrow is only DC which isn’t too far away. We might however, end up playing a show in Fredricksburg tonight. Life on the road is wild! So many cute dogs. I did get a cute picture of my cat though. I miss him a lot. If you’re in Tallahassee, go by my house and hang out with him for a few minutes.
