Fall Tour 2017: Day 2

December 12, 2017

Up early, coffee and scrambled eggs. Uploaded photos and updated my blog. Around 11am we packed up and loaded out, I followed Jack in to Philly, US22 to I476 to I76, to the Spring Garden Music House to pick up Zach.

Spring Garden Music House

A great little book

Lunch, fish on toast. Found a great little book.

Around 3pm we’re back on I76 heading west to Harrisburg. My rent-a-car is beeping, it’s 0 degrees Centigrade and I need gas. I stop just outside Harrisburg, gas up, turn on Google Maps. Surprise Google maps takes me north, the venue is south, and west to I81, past Harrisburg. Finally it turns me around, I arrive at Little Amps at 6:30pm. Jack and Zach, who were ahead of me on the highway, are not there yet, they arrive at 7:00pm. The mapping program had taken me around a giant traffic jam, good job!

Second set

The crowd

Looks like we will have a good crowd despite the cold, and it’s cold, and windy. There are two bands before us, we play last. It’s a rocker.

Harrisburg PA

We pack up, load out then head down the block to Andy and Erica’s house. It’s still early around 9pm, we watch a Netflix documentary on Pygmies. Andy arrives then heads back out for beer. We all sit around and chat then turn in for the night.

with

and
folks along the way

Packed up

Tables

The new Tappen Zee Bridge

Drive from my house in Lowell MA to Jack’s house in Easton PA. Pick up my rent-a-car, load out and i’m on my way by 10:30am. Google tells me the shortest, fastest route is out the MassPike, down I84 to Hartford, I91 to CT15 south to Westchester, I287 across the new Tappen Zee Bridge around New York City to I78, and finally NJ22 to Easton. With one stop for coffee and a second for gas, I arrive at Jack’s at 3:30pm.

I unload my gear, we chat for a bit. I set up my gear in the basement recording studio, Jack and I play for an hour before dinner. Barbara has made vegetable soup with potatoes, carrots, rutabaga, and currents with apple cranberry crumble for dessert. It’s all delicious!

My setup

Jack’s setup

Joel

Edmond and Jack

Joel Kromer and Edmond Cho arrive at 8:00pm, we head back down to the basement for a second recording session. Both Joel and Edmond play guitar. We play for over an hour then listen back. It’s a good session, new sounds 8^)))

Jack and I have a late night snack then off to bed.

Electronics on track 1, drums on track 2, still using the same patch, still finding new sounds. The patch has lasted for quite awhile, a month? Mixed in Audacity.
