Playing New York City seems to be pretty much a shit show no matter what the circumstances. We had a meeting in Brooklyn in the afternoon, so we got our sorry asses out of bed at 5:45 to leave Rochester. A friend of ours took us on the roof of his office building to drink beer and enjoy the view. It was a pretty remarkable experience the first time, but there was heavy fog and it was hard to see the skyline of Manhattan. We went up again a little later during the sunset…I wish a photo or words could describe the view, but they just can’t do it justice. We played a free show at a tiny metal bar in South Brooklyn which was a lot of fun. It ended up sort of a drunken mess by the end which led to a fight which led to a puddle of blood on the floor and all over Alex. Tonight we head to Connecticut.
We stayed at Nick’s younger brothers apartment in Philly. We had a good chunk of time and a short drive to Maryland so we walked around Philadelphia for a few hours. We played a good show at a little bar in Waldorf, MD. The show was great until the supposedly piss-drunk door man (bar employee) decided to walk off with all the money made at the door. That made for a nice situation at the end of the night. We drove for a few hours and stopped somewhere in Virginia to sleep in the van. North Carolina bound today.
