Back To Bands

Didn’t sleep much, got up at 8.00am and walked to the hardware store, health food store and the bank - Closed, I forgot it was Sunday. I came back to the Motel and worked on my guitars by the pool for an hour before having a meeting with Alvin and Dave in their room to straighten out the Drum kit diving incident. Dave’s kit would not survive that kind of punishment and finish the tour, so I put his kit off limits.

We set off for the Whisky A Go-Go in Hollywood at noon. Tonight Snap-Her were opening so it was an all New Red Archives bill. This was a great gig. Anti-Flag were very focused and their sound was, for the first time on the tour, really good. We too were more focused and played very sharp. Chick was feeling really Ill with tour fatigue/flu and didn’t work the merchandise stand instead slept in the shuttle. We discovered when we were setting up the stand that a box of singles had been left in Corona, we called the promoter and arranged to pick it up tomorrow. The show was pretty full and we went down very well. Afterwards we went to my friend Matt Green’s apartment where Charlie, Alvin, Dave & Chick slept. Carly, Chris, Jamie and I slept in the Shuttle just off Fairfax Ave after I showered at around 3.00am.
