Last night Pocket Vinyl hit the road…

…for our first away show of the tour, in Northampton, Massachusetts, at the Elevens.

We were the last on the bill after two separate and very unique acts. The first was a band calling themselves And the Kids and the Pirates. They were an incredibly talented act, the entire time Eric and I were both so engaged and fascinated. Definitely check them out, they were awesome.

They were followed by a burlesque troupe. We have never played with such an act before, and it was really so interesting. We talked a whole bunch with their members afterwards; just really fascinating people.

We played last, and the bassist from the first band won the bid on my painting from our set.

It was after midnight by the time we finished our set. Hannah from And the Kids and the Pirates invited us back to “the studio” to possibly spend the night. Here place is crazy; she lives in a sectioned off area of a giant empty warehouse/factory, it was extremely surreal. There were a whole bunch of people there, and the party started after 1 am.

By about 4:00 am Eric was ready to pass out but everyone else was still planning on going for quite a few more hours, so we decided to take off. The guy who got the painting gave us a tip on a scenic parking area off the highway just a few miles north, so we spent the night sleeping in the car there. We do love and pray for adventures, and our first night definitely did not disappoint. Not a bad start to the tour I’d say.
