Sunshower Tour w/ Regina Spektor (Day 10)
Nashville, TN @ The Basement
We drove to WV's Mountain Stage and watched Regina amaze the crowd with her crooning. I gave her a musket ball from Gettysburg (she tried to give it back) and then we kidnapped K. McKenzie and Dan Cho had to ride on the "Tour Bus" with sleeper bunks, a bathroom, lounge, and kitchen. Ha...SUCKERS!
K jumped in the Blaze and we took EZ street (via Don Knotts Blvd)....
...through the night straight to Nashville, TN. We had our friend Beau waiting for us and now that he's a married man we couldn't wait to give him his 67 punches to the groin. (isn't that the tradition?? Or was that just something my Nana made up so I'd never get married).
After killing several thousand bugs with our windshield....
...and witnessing the fiery death of Optimus Prime while driving himself drunk...
...we finally got to the club. We needed Burnett's, but didn't wanna lose our parking spot (for those who know The Basement, you also know that lot is a dick-punch for big vans) so Pat and I walked 2 miles to the liquor store. Wasn't too bad cuz we got to catch up on things like girls, punching K in the nuts, music, punching K in the nuts, girls...stuff like that. Oh yeah. And we also met a cat walking past the Museum for Furniture and Cats.
We called him "Pe...Pyopi."
Back at the bar we got to play a fun show and hang with our friends HEYPENNY and Beau from Computer Vs. Banjo. We met some new faces and a couple girls showed up later with some abandoned puppies in their hands. K was scared it was a scam and threw the puppy at the wall. Turns out it wasn't a scam. (The puppy's gonna be fine in a couple weeks)
Pat and I went to Cafe Coco for a "jam session" around 2am but it was just 3 guys playing Jack Johnson licks on guitars. Time for bed. Always a pleasure seeing our friends and we'll back in Nashville at The Ryman in November....Good Night!
