Tour was kinda indescribable. We had never been on a “real tour” before- before this tour, we’d played a handful of one-off shows outside of NYC- and suddenly we were piling into a car and driving across the East Coast and Midwest. We played all the hot spots, like Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago, the DIY staples and bigger venues. We also played in the basements of teenagers who knew all the words to our songs, in a vegan cafe in Iowa (the opener was a tap-dance act), and a venue that shall remain unnamed somewhere in Ohio that had a very distinct (read: bad) odor. Two beautiful engaged strangers offered to drive us and rented a 10-seater van. Another stranger in Chicago gave us dinosaur tattoos. A bakery donated 50 loaves of bread for us to take with us.
Tour was a very valuable experience, and we can’t wait to hit the open road again.
