Departures & Landfalls
We are all packing our bags (and in Marcus' & i's cases, moving house) for a sunny 6:30 am departure on Saturday for our first tour date in Birmingham. After learning the prohibitive cost of taking the old By The End Of Tonight van, we've elected to borrow the Hendley family minivan with a small trailer to cruise the interstates & turnpikes of the Eastern U.S. . It has captains' chairs in it, easily reclinable for the long nap i'm hoping to take once i finally finish carting cardboard boxes to my new apartment. Despite our collective exhaustion from the end of school & the last-second dufflebag stuffings, we are very cheered by our show Wednesday with Windy & Carl (thanks again to everyone who helped put the show on & showed up to get drifty) & looking forward to playing with our new projection system in some unfamiliar places.
