Big Sky, Long Drives (The Dance Continues)

UntitledAfter a 14 hour drive from Rapid City to Boise we did some serious restorative crashing at band headquarters for Sun Blood Stories, who are the sweetest people ever. The Rapid City show the night before was at a fabulous DIY space called the Llama Pen, apparently a reference to the band that practices there and, for better or worse, having nothing to do with actual Llama. It was totally our kind of space. Can’t wait to come back and see “The Cave” (TBC)! We made a couple of pals at the world famous Wall Drug on the way. (See Below) UntitledUntitledThe next night, we were back at the Crux in Boise. Great crowd and some really cool art on the walls! Also some great improvements to the sound system.

Next Stop: Salt Lake City. We reunited with a sweet fella named Rick who we played a show with in Norwich, England in 2009. He is Mathematician in Salt Lake City now. Go figure. In fact it was a night for reunions. Sharing the bill with us was Alexis Gideon, who was played a show with in Brooklyn in 2008. By the way I don’t remember any of these years specifically. I’m just asking Nan.

UntitledUntitledThe final reunion wasn’t really a reunion but it was a connection. A French Connection if you will. There was a couple traveling with Alexis who were from Bordeaux. They were also making a film. Of course they knew Martial from Total Heaven and were familiar with some of the venues where we had played there. Anyway, Rick was nice enough to let us crash at his apartment, which had a wonder view of SLC. This is Nan basking in the glow the morning after. UntitledClick here for more tour pics.
