Last week, the Shout Out Louds -- along with touring companions Johnossi and Nico Vega -- checked in with Spinner from the road to share their misfortune and hard luck. But this week, tour seems to be cruising along as the band invades the Midwest.
Boise is a lot of fun. If you like cinema, steak frites and German waitresses. And we do. We had a day off in Boise, Idaho, and you guessed it -- We went to the movies, had steak frites and couldn't find a cab back to the bus, so the waitress at the restaurant gave us a ride home. How swell.
Dan from Nico Vega's girl came and visited for a couple days. The next night, we left Seattle and got a cheap motel en route to Denver, where Rich and Dan were forced to share a bed. During the night, Dan rolled over, put his arm around Rich and gave him a kiss on his neck. Rich quickly responded: "Do you know who you're kissin', man!!!!!?" Needless to say, Dan and Rich aren't sharing beds anymore.
Next up was Salt Lake City. Adam, Ossi and Ted had the best tacos they had eaten in a long time, outside the Laundry Barn. Please take a visit. We did a special show that night opening for Interpol and Liars. All three bands played all their instruments perfectly and we ended up at Salt Lake City´s best bar, the Republic. The place was filled with drunk, happy punks, and they showed soccer on TV (what the rest of the world calls football) and they knew how to pour a great Guinness.
The Bluebird Theater in Denver was one of the most beautiful venues so far on this tour. And Lawrence the next day was great except that it rained. We saw the greatest rainbow on this side of the Atlantic ocean -- even the local roadies with the longest beard shed a tear.
Next up, Minneapolis ...
