Day 8 of the Shonali Tour: We had a pretty cool in-store performance at Grimey’s Record Store. I tried out more of my headbanging. Then we had to run to The End for our show with another band that brought in a huge Ampeg SVT rig and a guitar tech on hand to string guitars during their set. Unfortunately only one person came to see our show. But cool, because it was the bass player of Superdrag. Jeff coincidentally had a picture of him meeting that band back in the 90’s in Florida on his phone.
In the meantime, a few of us ran to get food at Cafe Coco. Totally a college hangout. The waitress asked for my ID for my beer, which isn’t unusual, but I was about 15 years older than everyone there.
I got the Lucia Panini (ham, tomato, spinach, swiss cheese and pesto) and the French Canadian Fries (cheese and gravy fries …sorta like Poutine). Both surprisingly good, especially the fries.

I look like I’m in a Mark Bass magazine ad.
