Once again we are traversing the US on tour and I’m going to attempt to keep up with a tour diary. We have some awesome shows coming up this tour. We have THE FEST in gainesville, a show with Code Orange Kids right after FEST and Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX where we will be opening for The Misfits.
We hit the road on the 17th stopping at my parent’s house in MD to print some tshirts. One day we will be prepared when we leave for tour, until then we will print shirts from the road. As always my parents made us feel right at home. We woke up the morning of the 18th and headed down to Richmond.
It was our first time in Richmond, VA and it was awesome. Super cool city. Our show with The Gospel and Blackout Shift went well. It was a fun night and Mike Jones and his wife Kensey of The Gospel let us crash at their house. After a few episodes of Digimon with their son Reid and a trip to River City Diner we headed down to Whiteville, NC to crash with our tour manager Richie’s parents.
Our drive to Whiteville was an easy one and that whole “southern hospitality” thing is no joke. We were greeted with fried chicken, biscuits and mac’n’cheese. After food and a whole bunch of Modern Family we went to walmart to pick up somethings. We headed back to Richie’s house, watched some Inglorious Basterds and passed out.
That morning we woke up and headed down to Wilmington. If you have never been there it’s a super cool city. We played at Orton’s and it was so far our best show of tour. We played with No Label’s Fit and The You’re Gonna Die and go to Hell’s. Both bands killed it and it was an incredible show. After the show we got a head start to Charleston, SC where we managed to book a last minute show at The Mill. We made it about half way and pulled over in walmart parking lot to get a few hours of sleep.
The show at The Mill was okay but the hospitality we received from Wally, the owner, was second to none. It was a good time and Charleston, SC treated us well. As soon as the show was over we headed to Savannah, GA where I currently sit as I write this post.
Hope to see you guys one the road. There will be more, I promise.
