PropertyOfZack Road Blog : : Washington Square Park (Final Update)
From Brian Legentil:
We got to our show in Cedar Falls, Iowa and lo-and-behold, it was cancelled and nobody told us. Our plan was to bar hop and wallow in self pity but we were saved by the girls who own the art space we were supposed to be play in. Tasha and her crew cooked us a huge meal (pasta, the closest we got to Italian food this whole tour easily), really helping us out, and let us crash there.
The next day we played a house show, in Louisville, KY. Everyone was super nice even if one of the dudes kept incorrectly making fun of us for naming our band after a Wonder Years song (why does no one listen to The Get Up Kids?) We had some drunken sing-alongs and, after me not showering for over a week, got welcomed to a freezing cold shower.
After, we played with Landmines at Mac’s Bar in Lansing, MI – the bathroom won the award for most gross that I had to shit in on tour. Pat and I were also a little upset the bar was playing Mallrats instead of the Home Run Derby. The show was good but ended kinda early so we awkwardly drove the measly hour to the next day’s show.
…Which was Rack n Roll in Riverview, Michigan, a favorite venue of WSP. It has a boxing ring for Foxy Boxing but, after getting an oil change and having nothing to do all day, we ended up drinking in the parking lot and forgot to give each other poorly executed wrestling moves for the first time when the bar opened. Dexter and Max smartly (and deliciously) drank Faygo and vodka because we were by Detroit. The show was great, we played with Snafu (who covered the oft-forgotten classic by NOFX “Shower Days”) and Slaves To The Pavement. We stayed with the Slaves To The Pavement dudes and had a super great time.
