DAY 19: Durham, NC – 1,765km to Fest

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 […]

Writing this from the front porch of a house in West Philadelphia. Been on the lookout for the Fresh Prince but no luck. Apparently he got fries last month from a place we stopped at today. Things just keep getting better on this tour. One and a half hours from Jersey into Philly. We have […]

So after a night in the bar at the Lanes we get home and realise that our van pickup  is not as close as I had thought. It was in Branchburg – a one hour drive from where we are but since we got no wheels yet, a 3.5 HOUR train and taxi ride almost […]

New FEST ‘Shoot the Shit’ Interviews

New FEST ‘Shoot the Shit’ Interviews

October 9, 2011 | By | Add a Comment

We’ve landed in Jersey so time for another special FEST OR BUST ‘Shoot the Shit’ interview. For our Jersey catchup we speak to who else but Static Radio NJ. Unfortunately for us (but good for them) they were on tour in Europe when we were in town. It would have been very interesting to catch […]

Fuck yeah I love this little part of Jersey. We are wholed up at a friends house ‘Little Eden’ – home to Chunksaah Records and Pete from the Bouncing Souls recording studio. I vividly remember throwing up here 7 years ago. The Asbury boardwalk is just a couple blocks away. Spent most of the day […]

It’s been pretty rad to be back here in NYC. This part of the trip was always planned to be some timeout to check out the city rather – do the goofy tourist stuff – rather than try and do interviews for FEST OR BUST. Not that we didn’t try to get a hold of […]

DAY 2: Boston to NYC

DAY 2: Boston to NYC

October 3, 2011 | By | Add a Comment

Travel day. We chatted some more with our awesome Boston hosts about the city before bailing – namely how the Whalberg family (inluding Donny and Mark) lived in the area near them and the whole family was complete trash. Apparently Marky Mark blinded a Vietnamese guy with a baseball bat before he became ‘Marky Mark’. […]
