The Road to SXSW: NY > PA > WV > VA > NC > SC
So, of course, my camera died immediately as I entered the good ‘ol USA. So 2 weeks of relying on my camera phone… it happens.
after a long day of driving, feurd checks us in to our first camping night at a Virginia KOA. Shoulda called it Brrrginia – it was so damn cold, I slept in all my clothing and my coat and scarf and still had numb toes and nose.
First show of the tour was in the tiny ‘town’ of Awendaw, SC near Charleston. It was pretty awesome. The weather felt like fall, and soooo many people came out for this outdoor show that they do every wednesday, I couldn’t believe it.
We crashed on the floor at the neighbouring recording studio, where they had mattresses for all 12 of us (I guess they fell off the back of a truck?) and they’d spray painted their poor dog pink, Wheezey. There was a tank full of chicks, and it felt very… not Toronto.
