More Pictures from the October Tour
John Craigie: friend and fellow folksinger (from San Francisco). This picture was taken at the show we played together at Uncommon Ground in Chicago. We had also played a show two nights before in Columbia, MO. John is a fantastic storyteller, and I highly recommend that you check him out here!
Some good friends of mine play in a great band named Flame Shark, and they recently moved from Madison to Chicago. After coming out to the gig, they took me out on the town and we drank copious amounts of beer in Wrigleyville. The next morning I went up to their rooftop to check out the amazing skyline view!
Just outside of Toledo, Ohio I decided to go for a walk at a state park and stumbled upon a resort hotel on Lake Erie where Obama was prepping for the final debate. It didn't take long for a decent sized crowd to gather, hoping to shake hands with our the man himself. Unfortunately, with plenty of secret service in tow, his caravan of cars pulled up alongside the hotel and Obama was inside before anyone even saw him. A nice bit of excitement for the day, though!
A real drive-thru liquor store in Toledo, hot damn!
Johnny Cash's tour bus parked outside the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Note to touring musicians: you get into the HOF for free if you give them a copy of your cd. For the rest of you, its $16... but its totally worth it, what a great museum!
