Manic and the Depressives Tour Journal: day 1

Hey everybody,

I am finally posting my tour journal. I guess this is just for all you curious cats who don’t get to go rolling around the country with a bunch of stinky punks in your van and wondered what it is like. Hopefully a peek into my perspective will satisfy some of your voyeuristic desires. This tour occurred in November. If you wanna read it here it comes. One day at a time….

We found a dusty box of tapes you won’t believe what we found inside…

While cleaning around the house we stumbled upon a dusty box. When we opened it it was to our surprise that we had discovered some long lost copies of the now four year old split cassette with Chicken & Whiskey / Tam Tam The Sandwich Man & The Magical Sugar Cookies. These have been long out of print this was for a tour they did together way back in 2011. Tam Tam was headed  out to SXSW and Chicken & Whiskey split back off home after Houston.

On the road with The Strangers in Europe part 1

So it’s been a few days since getting back from touring Germany with Room Full of Strangers. I had to take a few days to decompress and get readjusted back to my regular flow. I think it’s about time to try to recap on our trip. Let’s start from the beginning.

We left Orlando at 8pm on 10/21 and after an 8 hour flight we landed in Dublin where we had a pretty lengthy layover before boarding another plane to Dusseldorf. Finally we were in Germany we met up with our booking agent Mary of Turbo Booking and got to meet Rosie the van we would be renting for the length of the tour. The first stop we made was to pick up our backline from Gate to Hell then it was off to the first gig in Cologne at Sonic Ballroom. This first night was our first taste pun intended of just how different Europe treats bands compared to here in the states. 

We arrive in Bonn

Room Full of Strangers & Godless America in Europe

Room Full of Strangers Euro Tour

Godless America’s own Room Full of Strangers are leaving for Europe and they are taking us along for the ride. I will be their Road Manager and I’ll get the crabs but I won’t care. No but really I’m super stoked on this. Me and the boys have been working really hard on this. With the help of Turbo Booking in the UK securing all the dates and Prescription PR in the UK getting the word out plus all the hard work Music Promotion has done to get ‘Guest Bath’ on over 100 radio stations in Europe. I couldn’t be happier to be part of such a kick ass team. Please note that any orders made for cassettes after 10/20/2015 will be shipped after 11/8/2015. Below are the list of dates we will be doing plus links to the events. Continue reading
