It was a long and very hot tour. Mic was super glad to be home, but left only after a few days to go to Seattle, then back east, which is also experiencing extreme weather. Here are a few pictures from the tour.

The band stayed at Schloss Neuhardenburg the castle where an attempt on Hitler’s life was planned. Valkyrie was a 2008 movie portraying this plot. Side Note: no air conditioning.

    That’s a brutal schedule. Hang in there, Bro!

      Extremely brutal as it turned out. Mostly outdoor festivals in 100+ degree heat, except when it poured like a beast. Then, to top it all off, I got a mild concussion on the bus a few days before the tour was over. The road is kicking my ass and I really miss my family and my home. On our way to Atlantic City to play with AWB again. Home soon, Baby.

        Something to lighten your day:
        At Comic-Con last week, my friend Dave organized a bunch of us to walk past Stan Freberg’s booth, muttering “Rumble, rumble, rumble, mutiny, mutiny, mutiny!”
        Stan was tickled pink.

  2. I agree…the flights, food and weather are “no fun”. The road is hard at best. I am making you one of my signature dishes when you return..Enchilada Mole Cazuela. How about a peach blueberry smoothie too? The mountain menagerie misses you!
