The Pauses Go On Tour
Day 4 - 3:00 pm. WE’RE ALIVE!!! And not in the “we had to eat each other on a mountaintop” way. Although, for a while there, Nathan was looking pretty delicious. Maybe we can find a decent mountaintop on our way back down south.
The BimaFest really pulled it together nicely in the face of band cancellations and threats of unattended events. We got in just in time to catch War on Women who were destroying the Sidebar and unfortunately their own amps. But before they had to cut slightly short, it was like they were custom built to welcome us to the festival. If we weren’t so road-weary we would have totally taken part in the one-man mosh pit. In an unexpected turn of events, our pals Deleted Scenes were added to our bill at Frazier’s. It’s a blessing and a curse to play with those guys. Always a ridiculously flawless show, but who’s going to remember that other bands played before or after them ever? Pretty sure they even overshadowed the moment when I brought the house down by suggesting that we should have covered Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs at that particular venue. Man, you should have heard the roar of approval.
Our other pal, Kate Wilcox (yeah, we have a few friends who aren’t in bands) put us up in familiar digs, fed, and watered us throughout the storm. She’ll be tagging along (and being tagged by Nathan) with us to our show tonight in DC with Office of Future Plans. We’ll be stealing a good majority of their members for our own set. I don’t know that we’ve ever been more anxious and enthusiastic about a show. I mean that graduation party T and I played in some dude’s garage with that brocore band a few years back was up there, but the edge goes to this one just slightly.
So, that should just about do it for the weather-complaining portion of our updates. We hope that, while less penis-exposure-y than the weather channel, we were somewhat informative and compelling. Maybe next time we’ll work on the whole anticlimactic aspect of it.
