Sunshower Tour w/ Regina Spektor (Day 34)
Vancouver, Canada (@ the Orpheum Theatre)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~After an interesting night of coked up cougars banging on the hotel door and window at 2 hour intervals, we hopped in the Blaze and headed north. Off to see our friendly neighbors in Canada!! It is without any sense of irony that I say, Jupiter One loves Canada. We have always felt, since our first trip up to T-dot for CMW back in 2008, that Canadians are what human beings are like in our minds. (if that makes any sense)
We approached the border with loads of vodka and unsure if it's allowed. We drank as much water as we could, started pouring the vodka into water bottles, and then re-sealing them.
We crossed over very easily, but now we had two problems.
1) I have to pee. a lot.
2) We don't know which bottles are water and which are vodka.
We decided to make a game of it and set some rules. If you're thirsty and ask for a water...you HAVE to drink whichever one fate puts in your hands. It was fun for awhile, but then it got nerve-wracking as we realized we may be too inebriated to even soundcheck let alone play a show.
Here's the Canadian view from the Blaze....
Those dummy border cops let us through with bananas!!! What were they thinking?!?!!
That was a super fun bridge to cross....We forgot to take pics at the show, but the Orpheum was great and we met a real nice girl with a cool hair-cut named Jenna Ledger. Hi Jenna!
