Blogging the tour
It's 7:11 here in St. Paul, Minnesota. Minneapolis is just across the river which divides the twin cities. The river in the middle of the city is the Mississippi. Prince is the chief export of Minneapolis, Husker Du and Sugar are a distant 2nd and third. Everything is going well, and we play at a club called Big V's tonight. I'm at a Days Inn just down the road from the aforementioned establishment. Bozeman and Billings were fun towns, but it's also kind of nice to be in a city as big as the one that I'm from. So far, interpersonal relationships are good; sarcasm is flowing as freely as the bottles of Costco water. Ben & I watched "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" in the van, and when it's been my turn to drive, Jonny & Ben played a lot of Halo 2 and Tony Hawk Pro Skater. We woke up at 4:30am and drove all day, crossed into Central Time and arrived here in St. Paul. Total miles driven today: 848. We've got about an hour and a half to rest and eat and blog before going to the venue. TTYL.
