Last Stop, @sawdust_art #summercamptour #almosthome
So this is it, tonight we play our last show of the tour! Laguna Beach has treated us well in the past and we are happy to be making this our last stop before our heads find our own pillows. This has been a crazy 3 weeks and even though we are ready to be home we are already planning for the future tours!! The next one will be bigger and better, more dates and more cities, cross-country to every state and hopefully with some close friends along for the ride :)
Witzend Tonight!! Goodbye Tahoe :( #wewillreturn #labound #almosthome #summercamptour #winning
As this tour is coming to an end we are SO happy to be getting closer to our own beds. Not to say the beds we have been staying in haven’t been great but my kitty and favorite pillow are calling my name! Tahoe treated us well and we think next time 1/2 a day just will not do :) Our weary heads are LA bound today for a really exciting show at The Witzend and then a night or 2 with our lovely friends The O’Malley’s!
I gotta say, the road has been so much fun and we loved every minute of it…ok maybe not the time we left all our percussion and the pedal for the kick drum in Denver…or also that time we got flaked on for a place to stay 24hrs before we arrived…or that time the fires in Oregon were so thick and smokey that nobody came out to the show and we couldn’t explore the city because the smoke was so thick it was giving us headaches and making us cranky…or that time we got a couple hours of sleep and then had to drive 12 hours straight…at night…in the thick ass fog…
…BUT, after getting replacements in a pinch, our equipment is ever so kindly being shipped back to us by some amazing new friends we met and stayed with in Boulder…and we ended up finding a cheap hotel and got some well needed good-middle of the day-hotel bed sleep…and my Aunt I haven’t seen for years came out and got a private show and bought some merch…and we did make it to our destination incident free and after a few more hours of sleep we did a great show.
On top of all that we met a whole gaggle of wonderful people, fellow musicians AND fans! It feels like so long ago we got to Phoenix and cooked Anna and Doug dinner on the first night of the trip. Now, with 2 shows to go (LA and Laguna Beach), we wanna go again! I never knew how much I would like touring, its been hard and taxing and financially scary at times but I love it. I absolutely love experiencing new places, meeting all kinds of new people and SHARING what I love the most with them all.
Tired. Achy. Dirty. Fried.
Sing. Laugh. Love. Repeat.
So yeah….we win. This is winning at life I think. Charley Sheen had it all wrong.
Tahoe here we come!!!!
San Francisco was amazing, as usual. So many people came out to support and sing along we really felt the love. There are still so many mixed emotions surrounding the city for me and to have shared this new endeavor in my life with all of you lovely people means so much to me. A little less bitter and much more sweet, this trip breathed a bit more SF love back into my little ole heart :) Thank you everyone!
On to the next, Tahoe is waiting for us ever so patiently and we are excited to see this beautiful place for the first time!!
Quote of the day is by Momma Sue…of course. Upon informing her about Oregon’s gas pump situation she says “So Gramps got pumped by some strangers”
#TILOTR pt. 9: Oregon has the best “Welcome to…” sign. #warmwelcome #visitorswelcome
After breakfast in Portland yesterday and a 9 hour drive to Davis we had a great show at G Street last night! Today, after a homemade breakfast by Andy, we will be headed to the city for a radio interview on Mutiny Radio and then into Cafe Royale for a show this evening :)
We will be in SF for 3 days playing 2 shows and hopefully visiting with some friends. If you are in San Francisco this week please make sure you come out to both or one of the shows we get to do here! I am so excited to share this with everybody here! 22 KINGS!!!
#TILOTR pt.8: Oregon won’t let me pump my own gas. The attendant pumped it REAL good. #igotgas #pumpit
On the road again! #PortlandBound #SummerCampTour #FireEscape
Last night we had fun at Club 66 in Ashland, due to the fires and smoke though it was a very small show…i’d say PRIVATE show for the owners, the other band, and my Aunt and partner haha! It was fun either way though, Ashland is a wonderful place and we will be back no doubt when it is not covered in apocalyptic smoke filling our lungs with poison…NBD :)
We have a 5-6 hour drive ahead of us to Portland and tomorrow is our Basement Session, if you get a chance to see Kristen’s Basement Venue tomorrow do it!! We are going to have a blast, its a FREE show and it will be filled with amazing people :)
ON WE GO
Zombie Apocalypse? or Summer Camp Tour? #ZombieCampTour #OhLordItsAFire
Today marks the halfway point of our very first tour, Summer Camp Tour ‘13. We are in Ashland Oregon, it WOULD be beautiful if there weren’t a million crazy fires happening right now in southern Oregon. It looks a bit like a zombie apocalypse…without the zombies. Minor detail…We are excited to continue this amazing adventure we have been having. Hopefully the fires will stay in the uninhabited areas of Oregon like they have been the last couple days, either way it is HUGE and really is taking over the air here. Our thoughts are with those having to evacuate their homes (just in case…and because of the air quality here), we hope the fires get contained soon enough!
OFF TO THE SHOW! and on with the tour ladies and gents. Portland is next, we can not wait to spend some time with our friends up there!
Ashland, OR tonight! #Club66 #SummerCampTour We made the 12hr drive yesterday through mostly boring Nevada, but the closer we got to California/Oregon the prettier and more lovely it was :) We play a couple dates in Oregon this week; Tonight in Ashland at Club 66, and Friday in Portland at The Basement Session we lined up with our friend Kristen. Please come out if you are near us, they are both FREE shows and we would love it say hi! Hugs all around for a wonderful couple of weeks, and its not even over yet!!!
