We're back from our Euro tour. We came, we saw, we got up and played twenty-four shows in twenty-five days or something, and we still somehow managed to avoid using the kettle in the room. (Dan Stuart suggests you stay away from those electric room kettles. He claims people boil their underwear in them.)
Sounds pretty serious.
Seriousness aside, the band is playing great and things have been going pretty well. (How well, Chuck?) Well, let me put it this way: if you can afford to have your clothes dry-cleaned, then you're not doing too badly, right? I love dry cleaning. I'd get my socks dry-cleaned if I thought I could.
Even though I'm typing this at 4:00 AM, I am starting to feel like my old self again (whoever that is) after this last run of shows. Haven't had the time to feel homesick. I am sure I will enjoy getting back out there, but there is no homesickness quite as strong as the homesickness when you are still at home but know you are about to leave. But this having your body clock turned around upside down is kind of cool. There have been times where I get so restless I jump out of bed at 4:00 AM. And I've even gone so far as to walk to my office. Which is kind of an experience. I mean, walking through the Tenderloin at 4:30 AM? I recommend it highly.
Meanwhile, The Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins Tour continues. We're headed to Texas this weekend for shows in Houston and Austin. Two nights at the Continental Club in Austin. And dig this: EARLY SHOW AND LATE SHOW ON SATURDAY. We're always excited to play in Austin at our home away from home, the Continental Club. We all dig playing the Continental.
We heart Texas. There's more to Texas than Texas football. Austin is a great place to eat a taco. Come join us. Bring home a rattlesnake bolo tie! Eat some Texas toast. Climb aboard an armadillo! Or better yet go surfing. I'm not kidding. Dig this place: a wave machine in the middle of Texas: http://nlandsurfpark.com
