Hey guys, Connor here.
Just wanted to let you all know that this blog will actually be taken care of by two people. I know, gasp, right? The dual-author blog is a rare creature, but I hope Ileia and I can maintain it and keep you all pretty happy.
You should be able to tell the difference between us in a few different ways: our writing style, the opening line of the post, and sometimes the subject matter itself. See, I have a laptop that I take with me on all of our jobs, and sometimes when we’re on the road I let my mind wander and just write about anything that comes to mind. These, I refer to as the “thoughts from the road.” Really gives you guys a bit of insight into our (probably only my) minds, and what rolls through them as we trudge our way to whatever show we’re headed to.
Speaking of which, Elko! I love working at the Red Lion, and I’m always sad to see it in the rear view mirror. There are so many great people there, and they always treat us so nicely. It’s also awesome to have a Starbucks available without even having to go outside.
“Outside” is kind of the bane of my existence. You leave your temperature-controlled room and go out into the far-too-hot/cold world with its diseases and rain, you have to deal with people… Gives me the chills just thinking about it.
I think I’m getting carried away again.
Anyway, we finished up in Elko last night. We had a decent crowd, and got to perform for some people that actually enjoyed the music we were playing. That’s kind of what we live for – people actually enjoying what we do. Far too often we roll into town and play to a bunch of crickets with cell phones. Not in Elko, though. The Red Lion’s always ready for a good time, and we’re all looking forward to the next time we head back.
We’ll be coming back in May!
For now, though, we’re all headed home for a little rest before we have to hit the road again. We’ll be seeing you guys then, I hope.
Until next time,
