After playing Taos, New Mexico, we made our way to L.A. And before I talk about the City of Angels, I want to take a brief moment to thank all of our new friends in Taos who came out to the show at the Taos Inn and Adobe Bar; what a night!
Well, we’re back! It’s been about 5 months since we last played in the great state of California and it’s still everything we remember it to be; sunny, hot, pretty people, and a lot of music lovers! We arrived into the beautiful neighborhood of Englewood at about 4a.m. last Thursday morning. Once again, we stayed at Chris’ Uncle’s apartment, The Heights, where we seem to have become local visiting celebrities. We played at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood Thursday night and had a great response. Not only did we have old friends show up (great to see you Austin, Ian, Renae, and friends), but we also had the opportunity to meet new ones.
The next day, after sleeping in, we were off to Warner Bros. Records to meet with our friend Austin Hendrix. We got our own personal tour of the studios and offices. Thanks again Austin! Next, we had dinner plans with our friend Maria. It was at a fancy burger joint and I’m pretty sure Joe and I had one of, if not the best, burgers of our lives. Later
The next few days were relaxing, but eventful. Not only did we have the opportunity to hang out with Chris’ family and join in on Grandma Adrielle’s birthday pool party, but we also got to camp on the coast and drive up the scenic Highway 101.
Tonight we play at the Sonoma County Fair. Tomorrow camping in the Redwoods!
