Day 4: Rock Bottom-
Alabama! Home of the worlds first electric trolley system, first lunar rocket, first 911 call, and the birthplace of the Confederacy.
This was our second stop in Alabama, the first time being a year and a half ago at The Nick in Birmingham. Nate always feels that Alabama is an underrated state, and is constantly mentioning how much he likes driving through the south. (Personally, I’m a fan of the Alabama Slammer… So there’s my vote too!)
Root’s awesome uncle got us a hotel room in Montgomery, so we were rolling true rock star status yesterday. And, it was my favorite hotel chain, the Drury Inn. (If someone has pull with Chuck Drury, you need to persuade him to sponsor our tours! I’ll love you forever if you do!)
The customer service is always spot on, and the complimentary hot meals hit so many right spots! Last night they had pasta and meatballs with broccoli soup for us. And the breakfasts aren’t just a continental-bowl-of-cereal-and-a-piece-of-fruit deal. Sausage, biscuits, eggs, waffles, bagels….. Needless to say I was full this morning! On the road a free hot meal is one of the best things around. We do our best to try to eat semi-healthy, but the ease and convenience of fast food sometimes trumps that.
The show last night was another one with Taproot and Righteous Vendetta. We made some fans who were even tweeting at us through the set. After a solid show, and a super comfy hotel sleep, (and a bangin free breakfast!) we’re now on our way to Biloxi, MS to play the official WCPR after party for CPRfest!
