Back To Bands

This morning I had the problem of finding all the members of the tour party. Charlie had stoped at a woman’s house, and she’d given everyone the wrong address. Drews girlfriend didn’t have a phone and she had not given me the apartment number. It took the whole morning to get everyone together but ended up leaving without Dave who was with Anti-Flag and took Jamie, (Who Anti-Flag were looking for), with us. Drew did the drive.

When I checked in with the office it seemed there were some developments in Alvin’s divorce court appearance and it seemed he might not be able to finish the tour. It started raining very lightly then a lighting storm rolled over. Anti-Flag showed up late with Dave, Charlie apologized for being a jerk the night before so we were back on track except for Alvin’s problems.

Alvin and I were sitting in the Shuttle out side of the Garner, NC club when a hail storm hit. Hail stones the size of golf balls crash on the roof accompanied by claps of thunder, we thought the skylights were going to smash. The club was small, but quite full. “Bristle” opened but Anti-Flag went down the best, it seemed to be their crowd. We did ok, then drove over night until 4.00 am when Alvin and Dave, both pretty sick, got the only hotel room we could find, while the rest of us slept in the Shuttle.
