We loaded up the Honda Element with gear and hit the road with The Good Graces about 10 days ago and headed out to play some shows for folks in New Orleans and Austin, TX. We played a long set and had a great first night at Igor's Checkpoint Charlie with our new friends, Polly Pry. Beers were had, dogs were kissed, music was played and someone gave us a $200 tip. We stayed at a very cute AirBnB with a cute old Silverstream-like trailer in the front yard.

The next day we rolled into Austin, Texas in the evening, grabbed some pizza at Home Slice and rested up for our show the next day. Up and at it early, we headed over to El Sapo where we met everyone from Music for Listeners and settled in with some amazing drinks and just as fantastic food. So, so good. We had a great time playing and hanging out all day. After our set we grabbed a table and saw Be Forest, Spring King, Hinds, The Parrots, Wilsen, and Emmy the Great. Everyone was fantastic! After the day party ended we headed back to the house, unloaded the car and headed out to see Bookclub, our friends from Atlanta perform at Love Goat. Feeling totally exhausted by the ended the night we finished up our Austin experience with some late night tacos at Guero's. Such a fun trip. Hope we can get back out this way again sometime soon.
