Day three of the Bailiff tour brought us to Lincoln, NE. The 2nd state on the tour in which I’d never visited before, the first being, Kansas. One thing about Lincoln I can say for sure, is that the folks there are working really hard to build, create, and encourage an art and music scene. In the short time we were there, I got to see several up in coming bars, venues, and meet some of the folks pour their time into that city. I also learned to never pull a conversion van into a tight alley and attempt a 90 point turn around simply to make loading in and out of the venue more convenient. Oh, the things you learn on the road. Here are some shots from the historic Zoo Bar…
Day two of the tour didn’t start of perfectly, but after a great brunch, some thrift shopping, and retrieving the band’s merch from St. Louis. We hit the road, stopped at a Guitar Center and made it to Lawrence Kansas in plenty of time for load in. The Replay Lounge, reminded me a bit of my hometown bar The Brass Rail. Great drink specials, cool atmosphere (TVs with Saved by The Bell playing), and young eager music nuts packing out the venue. Located on a main strip of stores, shops, restaurants, The Replay Lounge was a great place to play and we had so much fun… Just don’t get caught Jaywalking!
I’ve been lucky enough to have been invited on tour with some friends of mine who play in a band called, Bailiff. For the next 10 days we’ll be on the road and I’m gonna try and document the journey via iPhone. These posts likely won’t include too many words! Let’s kick this thing off with load in and set up in St.louis at ‘Off Broadway’ each day I’ll update these posts with photos as they come!
I was given a tip from a friend of a friend to check these guys, Desert Noises out whenever they come to the midwest. Not too long ago they stopped by the The Brass Rail. Thankfully I decided to go to their show and they were spectacular live, genuine off the stage, and every moment in between. Stellar fellas and great musicians. Give em a listen!
