One of my bands, The Sexy Accident is on tour. I thought I’d post some pictures and reflections.
On Thursday, we drove to Carbondale, Illinois, where we played two shows: one acoustic and one electric. We were just outside of town when my brother-in-law informed me I had left my case with all my cords, tuner and distortion pedal, earplugs and extra batteries at home. So we had to stop at a little guitar store and pick up a cable.
Chad (one of our guitarists) is from Carbondale, and he brought his wife and kids along to see the first show and visit their grandparents. It was a mini-reunion of sorts, as another band that played with us was led by his old friend, Andrew, whom he played in a band with in high school.
It was so hot and sticky that night. We rocked a couple tiny stages, then we stayed with Chad’s parents. His mom made breakfast for us the next morning, and we were on our way to Pittsburgh.
We left around 9:00 on Friday, stopped in downtown Indianapolis for lunch at Penn Station. We arrived at the 31st Street Pub around 11:00 and ripped through a 30-minute set. The place had a strange mix of people: serious music fans, the regulars, some lady hollering about being from Wichita and biker dudes with fu manchus guarding the door.
We stayed at a Sheraton last night. We cranked up the air conditioner, and I fell asleep shivering. It was wonderful.
