St.Augustine was truely the highpoint of the tour so far. The vibe was as chill as the sun was hot. Fresh from a remarkably tight show @ Shakedown Street ( 2500 Hillsborough St. Raleigh ) we set up shop and picked up right where we left off 2 days earlier. The crowd was awesome, it is always warming to look up and see the masses shaking their bones, taking pics, and recording. Your energy is a major ingrediant in our musical stew! We greatly appreciate all your generosity and support !! The only downside to the whole night was the early curfew. The upside to the curfew however, ( and bands take note ) when several hundred people are dancing holes in the ground and they shut you down... merch sales go through the roof!! We sold out of the Beandawg sets, as well as several single cds , shirts,and such. For those of you that bought music, Thank You many times over and please burn it and pass it on.We also would like to thank the St. Augustine's finest for being so kind all day and helping to make the day enjoyable for all. Once again St. Augustine, Thank You For A Real Good Time!!!
To say the least tour has been eventful, interesting and trying. We have had alot of fun as well as some dissapointing times. Philly was a bummer!! 1st the inspectors shut us down ( no peddler permits ) , until a nearby lawyer came to our rescue by telleing the chief inspector the statute. The police where the next to make us pack up our gear, however, being told we had inspector hands blessing, we again began setting up. Finally, the representative from the Mann Center showed with the police and our new found lawyer was on a walk about . None the less, we managed to make a little cash and had the time of our lives shooting a scene remake from Up In Smoke on a busy Philly street. Hopefully you can find that video here http://youtu.be/X3qO1ziRLn0
The next day in New Jersey was everthing lot should be. There was a very nice Shakedown Street set up with us playing at the top. The lot raged all day and we moved a little merch. The Jersey Highway Patrol even got one of our cds. After a long hot day playing, we packed and headed for Brooklyn.
The people in Brooklyn were great and the venue was awesome! We also finally got a descent band picture. We then headed for Wilmington, NC. for another incredibly cool venue with wonderful people that know how to take care of musicians.
Next time maybe we will get into all the hurdles, but that will be a book not a blog!! See everyone in Raleigh tomorrow.
ok ... here is the deal. Somebody ... meaning one of you. Needs to be the first to start a SpongeCake and the Fluff Ramblers Wiki definition. It has to be from someone outside the band. The first one sets the definition and the tone and people can build on it from there. If nothing else it should make for some very unusual and fun defintions, since we don't even know what constitutes a Fluff Rambler. Good Luck on this most interesting challenge. Ramble on !!
