So I haven't written on this thing in God knows how long. I'm pretty sure no one even reads it anymore. Which is quite alright. But I figured it was time to pick up the axe again.
As of right now I am with Over the Rhine in Chicago. We played North Park University last night and watched Obama become our next president the night before that. Getting to Grant Park in a gigantic van and trailer was not do-able but the night felt historic nonetheless. After his speech Jake and I toasted our president elect with a Stella Artois in the hotel bar. I told Linford that second to the state of our nation, I'm glad the election went the way it did for the sake of the morale of this tour. We don't need no dark cloud hangin' over us.
I'll be out until November 15th with these wonderful folks and then I return to Texas to lay off the touring. Things I am excited about doing when I get home:
Seeing Carra and my family
Working on recording some more songs
Going to my sister's wedding
I've got a handful of songs which I'm going to be recording under the name Lassitude. That plus a couple covers I really want to try. Hopefully I'll have them available for free download on my good ol' Myspace by the end of the year/beginning of the new year.
Today I drive to Greensboro, North Carolina. Wish me safe travels!
