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

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

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’. […]

Two shows to go too today. Turns out both were at the Middle East – a long time venue in Cambridge that seems to have most of the international bands go through. I just automatically said ‘international’ bands then when most of them are actually just interstate over here. Anyway the venue had a couple […]

Today was just one of those days that just passed but in a weird, ultra slow state. A 4.30am wakeup call after only 3 or so hours sleep was hard enough. Add to that two flight delays and an anxious wait on standby and eventually we landed in Boston, hopped the T-Line subway system and […]

Our first pre-tour travel day had us scheduled to leave D.I.Wireless HQ for the past three months in Whistler, BC and head over the border to Seattle. 8 hours travel broken up by a bus switch in Vanvcouver and a border crossing. We’d done the drive from Whistler to Van down ‘Sea to Skyway’ a […]

So the time has come for the FEST OR BUST Tour to ‘unofficially’ begin as we make our way from west coast Canada to east coast US to ‘officially’ begin things in Boston. We have heard from some rad people, bands and others willing to help with the project already, and hopefully we can keep […]
