… this is going to be short… since tonight got a little rockstar.
… we were asked (and agreed) to host an after party at Knoxville’s tonight. It’s sort of a dance/country bar… average age early 20’s.
… we played at 7:30pm and around 10:30pm a limo stopped by the loading dock to pick us up.
… most of Saint Asonia came to join us even though they had a 12am bus call.
… things went from 0 to 60 pretty fast… I think it’s safe to say everyone is wrecked right now.
… anybody who knows me knows I rarely drink… I think I had 4 shots in 15 minutes then nursed a couple jack and cokes to keep hydrated.
… so hungry.
… I don’t have internet so I’m not sure when I can post this… I think Matt has the envelope the room key came in… so it’s probably on there… but he’s passed out…. and I’m not about to dig through his pockets to find it… we aren’t there yet.
… I’m somewhat together… it was a pretty fun night though… we”ll see how I feel in the morning.
… I would do a lot for pizza right now.
… pool opens at 6am… that might be a thing.
… so the show tonight… I think there was around 3,500 by the time we went on…. doors were at 6pm and we hit the stage at 7:30pm.
I played like crap but overall it was a good set.
… I don’t know what it was but I just didn’t feel comfortable on my kit… I need to bang around for an hour or two… felt tired too… maybe it was the steak for lunch… or the endless stairs all day at the venue.
… super nice venue though... huge room.
I had fun today… and it was nice nobody bothered me at the bar afterwards that I wasn’t having the same kinda fun they consider fun.
Dane wore a vest, scarf, top hat, and glasses on stage tonight… that’s commitment.
I got his hat back.
… and his cell phone… I think.
Reid and Seb are off to find food… I think it’s a lost cause though… GoogleMaps couldn’t find anything decent… and breakfast opens in a few hours.
We’re all sorta sad there’s only a couple shows left… Moose Jaw and Bismark.
… it’s been a really fun tour so far… hopefully we can pull the trigger on a few more runs asap that are in the works.
… apparently people appreciate that I keep it real and call it like I see it… bless you truth serum.
… I wish they ordered us pizza tonight.
I can’t think of anything else that really happened today… that I can include in the blog post at least. We left Dawson Creek at 6:30am and drove for 8 hrs… really wasn’t that bad and I do remember getting some sleep in the van… I think I found my spot.
I peeked in during Disturbed’s set… I’m curious what the final attendance was… it looked pretty busy… and people were into it.
I have to sleep… so hungry.
Tomorrow should be more interesting… my prediction 4/6 hungover.
We’re driving back to Calgary to spend the night… I need to do laundry.
… my face hurts I’m so hungry.

P.S. I’ll check over the photos tomorrow… my phone is dead.
