summer tour time

I've spent my past three summers out on the road. some might call that
a curse but I'd like to think about it as a blessing. I'm out seeing
the country, experiencing a different spot every day, I can't
complain. I get to see my friends who I don't often get to see outside
of tour. they come to the shows, we catch up on what we've missed and
then part ways til next time. it always seems I get stuck with the
craziest tours and this one is no exception. so far it's been a little
bit of everything. there's been five bands playing and every single
one somehow involves a really good friend of mine. title fight is made
up of really young kids playing their hearts out and loving every
moment of it. I can't say I'm
100% into their music but I love the effort they give day in and day
out. it's pretty awesome to see them having a blast every single time
they take the stage. mother of mercy, I can legitimately say has some
of the best people in the band. bob and me might be the same person
when it comes to many aspects in life. joe kane is seriously the most
straight forward, down to earth dude I've ever come across. kyle and
vince are physcos and I love it. plus their band is great and you
can't deny music that's just all around well written and put together.
gypsy is a supergroup of sorts. members of cold world, blacklisted,
letxdown, and bad seed make up the band. it's often hard to figure out
what's going on at points but I like it. every member is my favorite
and that's cool. foundation is the last band and I'm the most excited
for them. they are the one band I've obsessed over for awhile because
I'm in love with their sound. the passion and effort they put into
their performance every single night is inspiring. it's nice to see
and know and watch people with similar mindsets do what they love and
I can't help but feel connected in a way. our van is packed with
goofballs, fresh faces, drunks, messes, angry ones and all around good
times. I don't anticipate any day on this tour being bad. I'll have
more updates in the future possibly with pictures. no one reads this,
no one ever will.
