The past week has been a big moosh of days that I can't seem to separate, but to go over the highlights: I must mention that we traveled into Canada. First day was an odd one. The day started very late and we were being followed by a camera crew, so everyone was steering clear of us. Usually the case is the complete opposite. When you walk around, it's hugs and hellos one after the other—everyone is becoming so close on this tour. The first night in Canada was a long, filled day but that nor early bus call could stop the party. Everyone was so alive that night hanging around the BBQ. Then all of a sudden, a jumprope got busted out. One by one, people would attempt to jump it as long as they could. My great friend and Warped tour companion of 2009, Lights, was there to hang out. She's from Toronto and came out to visit. We jumproped together at the same time and I'm pretty sure we kept it going the longest. Kevin Lyman came close to beating us though.
Montreal was completely insane. It was a terribly long walk from the buses to the grounds. So once someone left the bus, they didn't plan to go back anytime soon. I saw some wrestling set up next to the Altec stage. That was interesting. Our set was wild. Definitely the biggest crowd we've had so far. Something about an energetic crowd makes you want to touch them. I always end up on top of kids by the end of our set. I also made sure to get some poutine that day: soo gooood! I caught Set Your Goals and Andrew W.K. that day, both amazing shows.
Hartford, Connecticut, was the next day and all I can say is it was absolutely unbelievable! We always have a great crowd there and I had a ton of fun rolling around on the monitors (which I'm not allowed to do anymore or we will be fined). This night, I decided that I HAD to climb the rock wall that was set up by the amphitheater. Even though everything was closed up, at 3 a.m., I harnessed myself up and climbed it. I am satisfied.
Boston was next. Great show. Huge crowd. Lots of crowd surfers and a pair of new boots from Newbury Street. GREAT WEEK!!!
Looking forward to New York City!
