    Day 18 - First of the Greenwood Dates

    July 13, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 30 °C

    Before heading to Greenwood we went out to lunch with Ben to a Carolina bbq place. It was buffet style. The food was good but I didn’t really love the sauces. I’m a little sick of all this food no lies. They had something called hash which is just all the leftover meat parts stewed for a very long time then you pour it over rice. It was like mediocre creton. After we checked out his guitar collection and made our way to Greenwood.

    The ride was very short and uneventful. Doug told us he had two rooms so one of us was getting our own room. He said he had three quarters with three different states. I picked West Virginia as the coin that should win. We all picked one and mine had Harpers Ferry. Good luck I guess! We got to the rooms and then headed to the gig.

    We arrived super early at the Inn on the Square where we played their ballroom. We got free food and I picked the filet mignon. We played two sets. During the end of the first one I was super sure I had seen Adam Gussow in the crowd and I was right. He asked me “are you related to the other Zack Pomerleau who plays harp?” We then got our food. The steak was great; sous vide.

    After the show we stopped to get some snacks. Andrew made me try Tahitian Treat. It’s just fruit punch that’s carbonated. We headed back and I hung out for the night.

    Our next gigs are on their main stage and then some local pizza place called The Mill House.

    Day 19 - The Mill House

    July 14, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Today was an easy day. We all slept in and then got some food. We got tacos and I only ate two. When I get home I’m only eating salads and such for awhile. All this bbq and Mexican is just not good to me anymore! We then found a humongous football field at the high school and threw the Aerobie again for about an hour until it starting raining.

    We then went back to our rooms and got ready. We decided to go to the place our second gig was at and set up as much as we could so we didn’t have to rush over. While doing so all the main stage gigs were cancelled so we sat around for a few hours. I got some pizza that was kind of not good. Makes me miss Portland Pie. I then went outside and saw a cotton candy stand selling popcorn. I got one for each of us.

    We had an interesting thing happen where some dude brought in a guitar and had us all sign it for him. Ben and one of his band mates showed up plus one of Doug’s friends from Cortez who recently moved elsewhere for a job. He told us about it and his crypto currency adventures.

    The gig went smoothly. After some drunk musicians talked to us for an hour and wouldn’t leave. One dude told me I must get a smaller kit like Gene Krupa (who used a big one). They left and we went back to the hotel, bringing some dude who couldn’t find an Uber after his gig.

    Today as of writing this is our last date on this tour. Blind Willy’s in Atlanta, GA.
