Rock Island, Illinois (Augustana College)

K took over for me at 7 in the morning and I slept in the back. After an hour, Pat woke up to see "the law" at the driver's window giving K a ticket. Apparently you "can't go 87mph" on the highway. Weird.

Pat kicked K out and took over for the next 4 hours. Zac got on and drove us the next 3 hours to Rock Island. We drove straight from D.C. at 2am and finally got to Augustana at 3pm. Daniel hooked us up with a couple rooms at The Radisson so we took a quick nap on our super pimp "Sleep Number" beds.

We loaded into the school about 5pm and met Alli, Daniel, Sheila, Deanna, Nicole, Mike, Nick, and Dave. They are all on our list of people we want to take on the road. But I guess they're more into the whole "get an education and a job that actually pays thing."

This crowd was amazing. They made our 13 hour drive worth it. Especially our man in the white hat....

We found A LOT of Cuts, Scrapes, and Bruises after the show.....

THIS guy Eric had a cut AND the most crazy pinky-accident we've ever seen. (agreed it doesn't qualify as a cut, scrape, or scratch, but it is DEFINITELY worth an honorable mention)

Zac wins the award for Most Enthusiastic Merch Salesman. I mean just look at the excitement behind those eyes...

Here's some people we met....

We also met this Spider......and EVE 6

We actually went to a Frat party at "the Quad" later....we toyed with the idea of streaking, but decided against it.

Me and Mandy are still trying to decide if we're friends or not...

...but check out the BEST bruise of the tour so far!

Good hang Nick....we'll see you guys next time.



Washington, D.C. (Rock 'N' Roll Hotel)

We took a long drive from NC to D.C. and loaded up the gear into Rock 'N' Roll Hotel. Our first time here and the place is really cool. "S" is a prick, but Diana, Calvin, and Kelly are awesome. We somehow forgot to grab our camera so there's no pictures :(

But thanks to SugarCane Crawl, Rich, Ryan, Adam, Daniel, and all the Lukas folks who came out to the show. We had fun and the staff there rocks. I also bought a $4 pair of white Pumas from Mike's thrift shop down the street. Check it out sometime....pretty trashy looking with cassette tapes of someone narrating Leviticus in the background, but you might find a gem.

We left the club at 2am and started the SUPER long drive to Illinois. I took the first shift driving these drunkards through fog till 7am. I listened to the new Stills album 3 times through, TV on the Radio's "Return to Cookie Mountain" twice, and The Album Leaf's second record.

Charlotte, NC (The Evening Muse)

The night caught a second wind when "magic" was introduced. Don had pulled an impressive card trick that won him a pretty precious wager.

K hopped on board with a card trick of his own that failed to impress my skeptical self...

I tried to show him how he could "engage" the audience a bit more.......

Ya see....THAT's how you captivate an audience....

We wound things down a bit with some camp fire style sing-a-alongs while K hung around the "Lance Bass" chat rooms....

Sleep ensued....morning came soon after. Judy Spinelli hooked up breakfast once again and then K and Pat went for their second 3 mile run.....Zac and I are sick so we're just laying low for now....Pat and K came back sweaty as all hell which inspired a jaunt in the pool. Yup. The Rock 'n' Roll Hotel comes fully equipped with an enormous pool. Crazy.

We all went to see Tropic Thunder together and it was rad. Tom Cruise made us all forget how much we hate him. Les Goldman is a Hero. "Why don't you take a couple steps back and LITERALLY......"- L.G.

Before the show, we watched a ton of Bowie DVD's....Zac was entranced with the wealth of Old Grey Whistle Test footage.....

K likes to do his Pre-Show Super Pumped Up Get Psyched Ritual........sleep.

Don showed us his scrape.....and then we were off to The Evening Muse.

After the show we all hung out at Sanctuary with Scott, Johnny, Andrew (thanks for the rounds), Sarah, Jenny, Libby, Emily, Ellen, Brittany, Jennifer, and of course the Kosters......good to see you Chris

We all got into a pretty heated Man VS. Machine "Donut Head Professor" competition at the Mega Touch....look at this intensity

Thanks for a good night Charlotte...
