well, first, we performed with Jack Topht, and stayed at his place after the show. his newest band is with his girl Ana (aka Little Cake). ever since the show, i can't stop listening to their project, Dasani Nites. such infectious tunes.
Jack has a lot of cool shit on his walls:
we got to the venue at sundown, and similar to Pittsburgh, playoff hockey was on the tv's, which made it feel like home. but then, i don't know. it slowly became a shit-show.
the "soundman" was more of a "sound overseer", and he didn't do a good job of overseeing anything, except maybe how much blow he could consume over the course of the night. Eze has felt the brunt of bad soundmen (see: Billings), and this was the worst sound of the tour. bit of a bummer.
also, this was the first time on the tour that people would dip when it wasn't their friends performing (meaning, when we were rapping). i ran into a couple these sniffly people in the bathroom, politely turned down their offers to, you know, and went back to rapping. over the course of the show -- and this has been the case in many of the tour stops -- people started warming up to us, but it didn't take away from the night feeling like a trap music-infused fever dream.
it was the last night that Eze was on the tour with us, so we bid him farewell before heading to Jack's.
Eze is a stand-up dude, immensely talented, charming as a motherfucker, and i highly recommend purchasing his album, L.I.V.E. N.O.W. such a pleasure rocking with him for a month and change.
