The Last Dance (for now)

UntitledNext stop was Ft. Collins, CO. None of us had never been there but we were greeted with smiles from the local band Hallowd Oak. They were sweet enough to help us load our gear too. The show was in a really cool gallery space called The Artery. With lots of cool art. A great group of kids! Love to the dancers!

UntitledAs we pulled out of Ft. Collins Jeff got a text about the news of Lou Reed’s death. I didn’t even know he had been sick. Aside from a recent perverted fascination with the “Lulu” Metallica collaboration, the recent work of Lou Reed has not beena large part of my life. But just like any songwriter in the world, I would imagine, Lou has spoken to my soul on countless occasions throughout my life. It was somehow comforting to be with Jeff and Nan upon hearing the news. We were all connected through New York. The fact that it was the last day of the tour added a slight poetic aspect to the news. To clear our heads we took a little hike along a nearby reservoir UntitledUntitledThe last show was an awesome punk space called 7th Circle Music Collective. It was one of the most organized “All Ages” spaces I’ve ever seen. I like this quote I saw on the wall there. It was our best show in Denver to date! UntitledWe’ll I guess that was it. We dropped Jeff off at the airport the next morning for New York and then we high tailed it back to Kansas. We only have one day at home before we’re off to Europe. It was super nice hanging out and playing with Jeff. There are talks about doing it again in the Spring perhaps. Stay tuned? Thanks so much to all the people who came out and showed your love at the shows. It is what we live for. Also a big thanks to all the promoters, venues and opening bands. You are our wings. One of the things I love about touring the most are the simple acts of kindness that I receive regularly from people. I’ll leave you with some of the vinyl booty I acquired on the tour. Happy trails!
