The Tropical Storm didn't mess anything up for us, just made loading in wet. Big Boi was suppose to be playing in the same venue as us, but he had to reschedule. Some Big Boi fans that weren't aware of him canceling were very confused by The Front Bottoms. We stayed with our friend Chris Brown at our favorite house in St. Augustine on our way to Orlando.
Orlando was great, before the Wills Pub show we were lucky to play at Park Ave Records. Tom was crying because of a hot pepper he ate later that day and after the show we got to have a small pool party with The Menzingers, then started our drive to Atlanta. Thank you to everyone that came out at 3 to hang out at Park Ave Records and everyone who came to the show later that night.
Atlanta….Where the players play…Very true. In the short period of time we spent in the city we made the most of it. We met up with our friend Andy Hull who we had toured with in the past. The show was a blast and we discovered Champagne Jam when we searched Atlanta in spotify.
We had the next day off to drive from Atlanta to Houston so we stopped in New Orleans and played another record store. Which was finished by 4, so we had a entire night in New Orleans ahead of us. We walked around a bunch, did laundry, met up with Say Anything and Donovan Wolfington. Saw all we could see.
Houston was another quick day for us. We had only played Houston once before so it was really great to have so many people come out for the night and party with us. Since we had just spent a lot of time in Austin recording Talon of The Hawk we were all eager to get out there and stay with Donnie and Frenchie (produced Talon of the Hawk) for two nights. It felt like coming back home. The Mohawk was so much fun! Just really killed my buzz when someone jacked our banner after the set.
This tour has been so much fun for all of us. We can't thank everyone enough for making this the best summer we could ask for. Chilling in El Paso with Weatherbox tonight. We're going to get wild.
