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.
In their latest entry, the guys hit San Diego, Phoenix and Austin where they let their silly side shine. In between well-attended shows, the band got to snap funny photos and film a special must-see video for their fans. Get a taste of life on tour with the Pomegranates in their new Road Report after the jump.
San Diego, Calif.
We amused ourselves by throwing various compostable objects (banana peels, apple cores) into the gorges on the way to San Diego. We found this to be quite funny (we might have been tired as well).
We arrived early at The Casbah, so we finished listening to some of Michael Ian Black's stand-up until someone arrived to let us in. We were greeted by a very friendly/helpful staff. We sound checked, and then went down the street to MXN to grab some food, per the door guys recommendation. This place was awesome! Very awesome, cheap burritos (wheat tortillas, too!). I had the fish burrito, of course, which was exceptional. We hung out there for a while, entertaining each other with funny faces, and antics. One in particular is the "simi-cross eyed" face.
The crowd was a bit light, but very nice and welcoming. We then drove through the night to Phoenix, arrived in the morning and got a hotel. Phoenix, Arizona. After having a sleep, we headed to Sweet Tomatoes, where we filled our bellies with all-you-can eat goodies. Fantastic soup and salad. After being gluttonous, we arrived at The Trunk Space. This was a very small DIY, all ages venue. The staff were all very nice and accommodating. They also had a photo booth...
We retired to our hotel, where Joey got slap happy:
The band we played with, The DA, was a pleasant surprise. Very nice guys, and some very interesting music. By the time we went on, everyone (about 200+ people), were getting quite rowdy. We had a great time, even though beer was spilled upon most of our stuff, and a pedal chord of mine was stepped on and broken during 'Skull Cakin''. After the show, we met a record engineer who engineered Yeah Yeah Yeah's 'It's Blitz,' and he invited us to stay with him and his wife. We checked out his studio, and listened to a few tracks off the DA's new album. Very cool work this guy does.
After driving for what seemed like forever through Texas, we got to Austin. I met up with some friends from back home, and we caught up. We had a fantastic show at the Mohawk.
We love you and can't wait to be back.
Also we literally listened to this song 20+ times in a row. So good.
