    Day 8 - Tip Top Deluxe

    August 23, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    The day started meeting Bob Connor again for lunch. We went to some local Lebanese kebab place. It was good but I’m just not a huge middle eastern food
    Fan for the most part. At his place he had some very cool old drum sets and a ridiculously big bar.

    We said our goodbyes and made our way to Grand Rapids. We hit some traffic but got there in time to stop at the hotel. At the gig we found out there was an opening act and that meant we had to load in and wait for them to be done playing to set up. I got a burger that was supposed to have caramelized onions, blue cheese, and bacon. Well there wasn’t bacon, a ridiculous amount of blue cheese, and a small amount of onions that were still kind of chewy. The burger itself was good and came from the owner’s (I believe) farm.

    It was a really good gig and we had a harmonica player sit in with us who was great. After we packed up and headed to the hotel.

    Today we’re driving to Geneva, Illinois to play Fiora’s. That was the first date of our last tour but we got rained out. Hopefully this time we don’t! We will be staying at Nick Moss’ place.
