Savannah, Augusta, Carrollton, Atlanta. We’re thinking of adding Athens and Macon next time around. Georgia is just that awesome a place. Even the small towns that one would think to be found lacking have a vibrant and hip music scene. No wonder James Brown and the B52s among others hail from there. No wonder it was always on Ray Charles’ mind. I better get my mind on Tennessee, we’re playing in Knoxville tonight, but until I get back there, Georgia will be on my mind too. Here’s some pics from our time among the peaches.
Before Orlando, we were back in Miami again for a second round of hot. This city is hot in every way you can take the word. We played at Luna star cafe with Lizzy Pitch. After the show Lizzy took us to her favorite Miami camping spot at an old abandoned pier and we made veggie burgers and traded some tunes. It’s very serene if you can imagine Miami as serene. A beautiful view of the skyline over the water. Miami’s nighttime skyline is exceptional, the colors and lights are like none other that I have seen. It was nice to have a spot to just chill and relax away from the hectic traffic which is also like none other that I have seen. Lizzy had to take off early in the AM to head to the keys. We didn’t have any obligation, so we just hung out till it was time for one last taste of Miami’s nightlife. We had met Danny Hayoun at our show at Dada in Delray beach, he was playing a gig with a jazzy jam band at Jada Coles in coconut grove south of downtown. We had to return the favor and go check these guys out. Chops city, these dudes had skills fo’real. Emily even got the opportunity to sing her jazz standards with them cause these guys know just about whatever you could throw at them. Fun night. We almost overheated slogging through the lethargic traffic to get out of town the next day, but Gracie bore through without breaking too hard of a sweat and we were on our merry way. If this sequence of events has become unbearably confusing, I apologize. The before that posts end here, and if you read down the line, ignoring the part where I say before that, it actually will fall in line as a continuous narrative of the last few weeks. I’ll end it here, cause I have to tell you about Carrollton this past weekend.
