DAY 27: FEST

There is no way I am going to spend Fest in front of this screen. Be back when the chaos subsides. It’s been amazing…and it hasn’t even started.

So what’s in Orlando besides theme parks and punk rock shows. Anyone? Another morning starts in a empty carpark. This time woken by security telling us to get the fuck out…but in a very polite Floridian way. It’s weird I haven’t thought too much about Fest for me personally until about halfway through this trip, […]

Roughly three and a half hours into Valdosta, Georgia. We definitely knew we were in the bible belt heading here. Massive stars and stripes waving over the interstates. Lots of farmland. Lots of Jebus praising. Obviously the highlight and the reason for the trip here was rocking round to Jon from Ninja Gun’s house to […]

It was always a little up in the air whether we took the long road through Atlanta or the easy road through South Carolina. So stoked we headed west though. Although the city was a bit of a ghostown when we headed in after another night with Ellen in a quiet street in East Atlanata. […]

DAY 21: Wilmington to Atlanta

We drove a bit today. Like 6 hours. We ate stale breadrolls and two-minute noodles. We bought 8 lighters for $1.87. There is a wasted white girl next to me in MacDonalds. I reckon she drove here. We are sleeping in a carpark somewhere tonight. Come say hello. Unless you are the cops.

Woke with no idea where the fuck we were exactly…but a beach somewhere near Wilmington. So apparently this town is really popular as a filming location cause, as it was described to me, “it could be made to look like heaps of other places in America”. Fair enough. Beaches, bars and a river called Cape […]

Two and a half hours from Richmond to Durham. A great farewell to Richmond last night down at The Cellar Door, a small pub/restaurant in the middle of Monument Ave and a bunch of overpriced college student apartments (apparently). Great to see The Outsiders fellas again. Can’t believe they are on a 9 WEEK tour. […]

One of our longer drives to date from DC to RVA and our first experiences with traffic on a six lane freeway in the middle of a Saturday for no reason other than congestion. Makes you realise how many more individuals you are dealing with on this continent. Richmond, like Asbury Park, was one of […]

Im am seriously struggling to try and keep my eyes open as I write this – so pardon any ramblings, typos or nonsense in general. 3am and plenty of liquid persuasion. This is is what I signed up for at the moment. A night of shows and drinking but posts to do. Poor baby More […]

Today was a bit of a weird one. The weather had turned pretty fucked up just as we left Philly for the 1.5 hour drive into Baltimore, skipping past Delaware (BOYSETSFIRE!) So we roll into town with no hookups for a place to hang, no interviews planned, and no idea where the fuck to go. We […]
