We also had the pleasure of hooking back up with an old Seattle friend, Heinous Haines. We all went to the Haight/Ashbury district and grabbed some food and did some people watching. The rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing at John's house and having a good time. Heather invited us over to her place for dinner and we had our first home cooked meal of tour. It was delicious and good to not be eating greasy/fast food.
I think we ended up having 13 people cruise on the bus to the show. The Retox was located pretty near the Giants Stadium and there was not many people hanging around. The Retox is a bar that has a show space downstairs, it kind of felt like a basement show, but it has part of an airplane fuselage and some airplane seats. We had a number of old friends at the show, which was awesome!
Heinous was slinging merch for us and we played pretty well. Gifts tore it up, as they always do and Not to Reason Why was amazing! We can't wait to play with them again, I think they are our favorite new band, plus the nicest people around.
We ended the night on the bus yet again.
