Flat-Out High Speed Burn To Vegas
Well, in less than two weeks, the band and myself will be departing on a west coast tour with no air conditioning. San Francisco, Oakland, L.A., Las Vegas, and who knows, maybe San Diego. Not looking forward to the 8-9am push off from Portland to San Francisco on the first day, but after that, things should be much smoother. We’re all excited to see and play with Slough Feg again; like little wide eyed children awaiting to hear more dragon stories . We get to play with them twice this time around. The culmination and perhaps high point of the tour might be the Doom Festival in Las Vegas on June 5th. I hope to not spend too much time in Vegas. I can easily see myself going into a hazy Fear and Loathing trip if left there alone for too long. Ending in a “flat-out high speed burn through Baker and Barstow and Berdoo. Then onto the Hollywood Freeway, and straight on into frantic oblivion. Safety. Obscurity. Just another freak, in the freak kingdom.” Lets hope the van makes it through the desert at least. Hope to see some old friends along this road burn.
Also, we found a show review from a guy who runs a real cool music site called seattlerockguy.com. That was a good time up in Seattle. I would love to play there more often. The Capital Hill neighborhood on a weekend night is some of the craziest shit I’ve seen in a long time. Trannies, hot dog vendors, drunk college chicks, metalheads, and homeless Jamacan dudes who offer people sips of their beverages, all commingling together. It was a good time. We’ll have to do it again Seattle.
Here’s the review and a somewhat painful stumble through cover of “Going Blind.”
