Okay interweb, it's been too long. Fun updates will be posted this weekend. We played Memphis tonight, and while it was humid as ever, we had fun. My bass amp is not acting right and it kinda bugs me during our sets, but this weekend I might have time to get under the hood and see whats up with it. We had a dressing room trailer at the Beale Street Fest. They even decorated it with posters from Sun Studios, AND had really cool Sun Studios t-shirts waiting for us. So stoked. For the uninitiated, Sun was the starting place for cats like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and others. U2 also recorded there during their Rattle and Hum cycle. We had a funny meet and greet autograph sesh after our set. Oh, but while walking off stage I ran into Fred Durst. He was a nice dude. We talked about the films he's directed. After the show we were en route to Dallas, but got caught in bad weather and had to avoid multiple tornados. We even hid out at a Wal Mart in the middle of Arkansas to avoid the rain. Now were shacked up in a Super 8 motel wishing we could make it to Dallas tomorrow. Looks like we'll head straight to St. Louis instead. Which is good, cuz I don't feel like being a storm-chaser again anytime soon.
