Well, we made it to Cardiff. We found the venue pretty easily (it was located across from a giant castle), pulled down a side street to load in the gear and went to find a parking garage. We killed time before the show by going to get some dinner at this cheap-ass but deceptively fancy restaurant. Then we went to a Sainsbury’s and got some snacks: digestive biscuits and whatnot. Then we walked back to the venue and played our show.
As I write this, we are making the jaunt from Liverpool to Cardiff. It’s been a couple of dayssince the last update, so let’s see what all we can remember.
We all woke up pretty late Friday and eventually left Andy and Haley's house to go find ourIndietracks hotel. We weren't sure if we'd need one, so by the time we got around to reserving it we had to get something about half an hour away. But it was pretty cheap. Not that a hotel on tour ever feels "cheap."
The last time we rented a car in the UK, they offered us a sat-nav for a huge extra charge, but there was one built into the car. We kind of banked on the same thing happening this time, and it didn't. We couldn't deal with how much it cost, so we drove to the nearest Currys and bought one for ourselves. We also stopped in Argos, which is kind of like Ikea, except that you select products from Sears-type catalogs, enter them into a computer and then get in line to pay for them. It has been in the 60s during the day so far (unexpected to someone in our party) and at one of the services we saw "summer coats" for sale. That is a thing.
Hey y'all, Eureka California (Marie and Jake) here.
Today, we're heading off to the UK, where we're going to tour for the next couple of weeks and then record our new album. We're also going to do our best to document the interesting parts of our trip for Flagpole.
