Tour Blogging Pt.1


portastatic is officially on the road and despite possibly the wettest load-in ever last night in Philly (puddles were forming in the back of the van) the first show was good. north star bar is pretty cool, weird to have a balcony right over the stage and a big dropoff to the floor from the stage with no monitors (they're suspended from the balcony) to keep the clumsy from toppling right off, but we avoided any such mishaps and played the following songs:

sour shores
you know where to find me
through with people
you blanks
sweetness and light
angels of sleep
drill me
i'm in love (with arthur dove)
like a pearl
naked pilseners
white wave
i wanna know girls

center of the world (acoustic)
i'm not sayin' (nico cover, though she didn't write it, gordon lightfoot did!)
san andreas
baby
song for a clock

we just arrived in boston, looking forward to the rest of the tour with jennifer o'connor...she mentioned possibly doing some guest blogging here, we'll see if we can talk her into it.

much as i love new orleans, when we get 40 people at a show in boston, it doesn't bode well for driving down to the big easy!
