Columbia, not Columbus
Columbia, Missouri lies about halfway between Kansas City and St Louis, which makes it a perfect stop for a little midwest tour like this one. We had played KC and St Louis several times before, but we hadn’t made it to Columbia yet. It was about time we did. This is a relatively small college town, yet it really has a good scene for music. Our gig was at a place called The Bridge, which is a bar and venue offshoot of the Columbia Academy of Music. Very cool spot, and even though only the cheap beer was unlimited and free, it was unlimited and free. We played as a featured act of an open mic night, so there was a whole lot of musically inclined folks around for the evening. If you ever get down that way, check this place out. Friendly folks abound. See the full album of photos here.
