The Front Bottoms: Notes from the Road




I don't think any of us could have asked for a better way to start off this tour, with a bag full cookies from Tom's mother, and two sold out Maxwells shows. This would be the first time playing the new songs live, so everyone in the band couldn't wait for tour to begin.

We also had some great bands on the two Maxwells dates. Friends in The Everymen, Youngman Grand, Brian Bonz, and Weatherbox. We're glad we got to play there again because Maxwells will be closing at the end of July, and those two shows were the greatest way to say goodbye.

The Black Cat in D.C was our next stop. Going into this show knowing it was sold out was blowing our minds because the first time we played D.C it was in this vacant building that squatters started putting on shows. That night ended with Brian getting punched in the face by one of them. So this time around things seems way better for us and it was. The show was super super hot but everyone was able to have fun.

We had the next day off before playing Norfolk VA. So we got a room in Virgina Beach, played 3D glow in the dark mini golf, did some night swimming, skated around, and had some pleasant motel room neighbors who didn't seem to want us around. The show at the Jewish Mother the next day was great. It was nice to see some friends from past shows and catch up with them. It was also Brian's birthday so we had a party at that show.

To quote or favorite pizza man at our favorite pizza place in Chapel hill (right next to the venue) "Mommma Mia! That's a spicy meatball!" I think all the times we have played at the Local 506 we find ourselves eating in their restaurant. Mostly for the entertainment, and cheap pitcher of beer. We can all agree on the fact that this was the best show we have had in Chapel Hill yet. Thanks to everyone who came out. Especially Magic Mike for the leaving us speechless.
Now we are 7 hours in to our ride to Jacksonville Florida. There's a tropical storm warning as well as a tornado warning but it's not going to stop us. Unless of course there's no power.
