Pomegranates are currently on the road with Oh No! Oh My! in support of their third full-length album, 'One of Us.' The release marks the first with the Cincinnati natives' new album Afternoon Records, and co-produced by the band and TJ Lipple of Aloha.
After recovering from their rough kick-off, the four-piece headed to the Northeast, where they took in the sights, sounds and culinary offerings of Pike Place Market, and gorged on doughnuts from a famous Portland establishment. Read about their travels, including their KEXP visit, in their second Road Report after the jump.
We drove through the night and stayed with our new friends the Crawford's. They made us breakfast sandwiches, and we were surrounded by little children everywhere. They have 16 chickens under their deck! But I guess that comes in handy when you have six mouths to feed.
We cleaned ourselves up and headed to KEXP to do a session. We had a fantastic time with everyone at KEXP. After, Jake and Joey practiced their model shots in the parking lot.
After goofing around, we headed to Pike Place Market. I was in search for some affordable, but delicious fish. Isaac, Bill, and I went to a place called Cutters. It wasn't cheap, but it was right on the pier, and boy was it good. I had the fish and chips (salmon and cod), and if I may say, some of the best I've had (besides The Crazy Norwegian in Port Orford, Ore.). Joey and Jake went off and had variously delicious treats (that were not made of fish).
We explored the fish, fruit and flower stands at Pike place, and though I hate the business of this place, people are friendly and polite. Isaac and I went to find some coffee treats, and played a really fun show at Sunset Tavern, where we had two amazing pizzas and fantastic drinks. Everyone was so nice. Seattle gets moved up a spot on my "Top 3 places to live" list.
After a lovely, misty drive, we arrived at Mississippi Studios, a very clean, well-run venue. We encountered the nicest, most laidback sound guy, Jeff. We met up with various friends of ours, got some great food from the adjacent restaurant, and had a fantastic show.
Afterwords, we went to the famous Voodoo Doughnut, and ate way too many doughnuts. Jake enjoys pinball quite a lot, so we spent a good hour doing that. Thank God Voodoo is open 24 hours, because we stayed laaattee.
