Staples and Knitting
I remember the first time we ever played in LA. its was the summer of 2005 and we played in the arcade at Jillians. The 20 people who were there either worked for Columbia records or were friends with a girl we met on the plane and invited to the show. Last night we had another doubleheader: The Hannah Montana tour at the Staples Center and then a show immediately following at the Knitting Factory. it was one of our best shows i think we've ever played and even performed a brand new song we just worked out in soundcheck that afternoon.
I had a red bull, 2 milkshakes, and a cup of coffee (all of which i almost never drink) to give me the boost i needed. the sugar rush was incredible and the crash later that night into my bunk was even better.
we're in the middle of a string of dates, like 17 or something, all in a row. i'm begining to feel like this guy, except with a bass guitar instead:
