Back To Bands

Got up at 7.30 am, showered, went to the general store to get stamps and made carrot juice. We left for Atlanta at 9.30 am. I drove the first leg then Dave drove for a while. I found great peach cider, natural apricot jam and honey at one of the farmers markets along the road.

The club was full of English guys watching soccer on a big screen TV and Charlie started drinking with them. The club was packed by the time we got on stage and Charlie, drunk out of his mind couldn’t get to the stage, so we had to start again. The bass rig cut out, I broke a string and an 8 year-old girl was wondering around on stage. Charlie was behaving like a 12 year-old insulting everyone over the mic, etc.

After the show, which was early we all split up. Drew went back with his ex-girlfriend, Alvin made an heroic attempt to get laid with two lipstick lesbians but ended up blowing it somehow after making out with them, and ended up raining on Drews parade by crashing at his girlfriends one room apartment. I drove everyone around and ended up sleeping in the Shuttle with a woman from the club. It was chaos.
