above are a couple more reasons why i am in philly right now. jason rockhill (discount/hotwatermusic tour manager) and bill nesper (discount drummer). they have a new band called Unitas and are on tour up the east coast right now. i spent two weeks on the road with them last april on tour with discount and haven't had the opportunity to hangout with them since. unfortunately i will only get to see them in philly as i have to get back to work...
heather was alkaline trio's amazing road manager last year when we crossed paths at the macrock festival in harrisonburg. she loaded in all the band's equipment, soundchecked and set up the merch table while the band slept. she was totally cool and fun to hangout with. she isn't AK3's tour manager anymore according to their website. hopefully she's on the road with them in some capacity and i'll have been able to see her and them in philly opening for blink 182...
i could write another 10 paragraphs of anecdotes from the discount tour, but i have to catch a flight to philly in 4.5 hours and still need to pack, and, um, sleep.
thanx to paul galipeau for uploading these pages while i was away (or thanks to jason gnewikow or sean agnew for letting me use their computers.)
