Day Two

Yesterday we woke in Omaha to the sight of a cat licking Ryan's face in a friend's apartment. After wandering around a vacant lot and an abandoned building (which Ryan and Mark scaled to the roof), we dropped by a pawn shop where we failed to close a deal on a glockenspiel. From Omaha, we headed back to Kansas to play in Wichita.

Last night we played at the Riverside Perk Cafe with Brian Foster (aka Orpheus). One couple asked me for discs after the show. I remembered that they had only come in for the pseudo bossa nova break after a new song called 'Bulls.' The woman explained that her husband listened to 'that kind of music,' except exclusively in Spanish. I think they'll be disappointed in the discs... we enjoyed ourselves regardless, and the crowd was encouraging.

After packing up and enjoying some free drinks outside of the cafe, we drove into Kristin's hometown of Oskaloosa to stay at her family's house. En route, we spotted some deer, coyote, and the elusive deer-coyote.

Tonight we play in KC....

Tour Day 1

Our small tour has begun. At noon yesterday, we packed up the van and headed to Omaha, Nebraska. After eating a picnic dinner in a park and checking out a downtown art show, we went to Oleaver's Pub, on Saddle Creek Rd. First Adam Robert Haug ( performed an acoustic set (which I really enjoyed), then we played. From what we gathered both during and after our set,the crowd seemed lively and receptive. Afterward, Cat Island took the stage with a Moldy-Peaches-like set. Later, we gathered at the apartment of a friend of the band with some friends that had traveled from Manhattan to see the show. While sitting on the coffee table, Cat Island's aged bassist (sporting a pink mo hawk) explained the innumerable uses of hemp and hemp oil to Mark for an hour and a half. Today, we spent most of our time driving back to Kansas, where we're we're playing tonight at the Riverside Perk in Wichita with a one-man-band called Orpheus. We head to the Riot Room in KC tomorrow.
