Yesterday we drove into beautiful Louisville and dropped in to the studios at WFPK to do another radio thingy with Dawn, hosted by Laura Shine who just adopted a dog that looks like a baby lion, I swear. We played Twilight and Dawn’s special version of Young Folks by Peter, Bjorn, and John.
Then we ate some damn good barbecue at Mark’s Feed Store, after which we headed over to Jason’s parents palatial Cressbrook estate where they’ve offered to put us up for the next few days. Then we went to the Pour Haus where Dawn was headlining a show with Tender Mercy and Slithering Beast. Balthrop was going to do a couple songs in the middle of Dawn’s set, but as it turns out Tender Mercy cancelled so there was room for us on the bill. Dawn didn’t want to play last so she had us close out the night. It was a talky crowd but I think we managed to win half of em over pretty good. Maybe some of them will come out for our show at the Rudyard Kipling on Wednesday.
After the show I watched 10 minutes of 48 Hours and started snoring.
This “morning” (around 2pm) we had the most amazing brunch ever I fucking swear on my mama’s left eye, at Lynn’s Paradise Cafe. Man oh man.
Now we’re at the Dame in Lexington where Dawn is opening for Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit. The Dame is doing one more show tomorrow night and then this whole block of buildings is getting torn down to make way for a skyscraper. Hmm.
