Second and last of our theater shows today. Even smaller than LA. Hans and I divide guitar world up into two parts. He takes behind the stacks (where all the pyro is) and I take downstage right, where I am pretty much 'onstage' with the band. Load-in, check the local catering and decide to have Cup O Noodle from the bus. Soon tacos from Micah's favorite Mex joint arrive and I have one of those too.

The theater we're playing is just off Market St. and in an area full of porno shops and crack heads (I'm not exaggerating). Our road manager drives his '49 Ford (see pic in sidebar at right) to the gig nonetheless, and they station a cop by it all day.

Another show opened by The Network, so more double duty. They put on a fantastic show though. Being a hometown show (of sorts) for our band after they play the 'opera', they then launch into an hour and a half of oldies and covers. They play continuously for over two and a half hours. Everyone has fun, not knowing what song they will do next (they didn't know either). Load-out commences and we finally get back to the hotel after 3am, and we have a 7:30am lobby call to fly to Nashville. Yay...
