Loretta Lynn's Kitchen


On the way to Conway we stopped by Loretta Lynn’s Kitchen to use the restaurant and spotted this giant buffalo statue. We thought it appropriate to take a picture next to it with Energy Domes (the Devo hats) on and goofy faces a’blazin. Pictured left to right is Joel (who was touring with us), my sister (she played bass and me (on the drums).

Waking up in Nashville.


We awoke Wednesday morning after sleeping three hours on the floor of the Upstairs Tavern (which is conveniently upstairs from The Muse) to someone banging on the door. The bartender slept in the bar with us because he has too many DUIs and apparently crashes there all the time anyway. The man banging on the door of the bar was looking for the owner (I think) and he kept screaming about how his car was stolen. I guess that’s what you get when you sleep right next door to the worlds largest adult entertainment store. I’m told it isn’t the best neighborhood.

First night in Nashville TN

First night in Nashville TN

This was our first night on tour in Nashville TN. The show wasn’t well promoted (if at all) and to make matters worse it was on a Tuesday, a day when the bar we were playing in wasn’t normally open. The only people who came out to the show were the three bands who were playing it, the bartender/owner and his friend who rolled his own cigarettes.
We put Rob’s Accordion case out hoping more people would come out and help us out with some gas money to get to Conway Arkansas but all we got was some change from Joel who was actually touring in the van with us.
The first night was rough!
