Tour Blog #6: Boston, MA

Hey,

Last night we left Providence late and drove to Boston to stay at our friend Paddy's house in Allston, MA (basically in Boston). As we were driving, we saw what looked like a tornado in the sky. We never found out what it was but I'm pretty sure it wasn't a tornado.

We got to the house at like 4 or something and went right to bed, 9 people in one small room. Generally so far I've been sleeping really well but I had a really bad nights sleep, mostly because it was super crowded and uncomfortable and it was pretty loud. When I went to sleep people were talking and then I woke up to people blasting Knyfe Hyts and like playing guitar.

Anyways, I was in and out of sleep for a while and then woke up really late and ate ice cream from a cool vegan ice cream place nearby. Then we went to a music store for a bit. I bought the worst quality drumsticks I've ever bought. They cost $1.50. I bought 5 pairs and broke all of them in 4 songs today. I guess you get what you pay for.

I brought 26 pairs of drumsticks on tour and they're all broken now, which is crazy.

We also got some dust masks at a hardware store, because the basement we played in tonight was super-dusty.


The show tonight was awesome. It was Paddy's 21st birthday party, so a ton of his friends came out, plus a bunch of Bostonian Fiasco fans. We played a short set because we were worried about cops showing up, but they never did.
At the end, we teamed up with our friends Bat Attack to cover "Say It Ain't So" by Weezer, one of Paddy's favorite songs.


The party was super loud and went on really late, so right now we're chillin in our car outside

What the F is that guy from Bat Attack standing on? It looks like he's being selected in some reality RPG...
