Tour is done... again!
So.. that's another tour done with the boys in Where There's Life - as frustrating as that is, I hope to be back out on the road asap with some cool people!
Anyway, whilst away, I wanted to focus heavily on video this time, as I know myself I need to improve and develop my skills in that area.
Each night, I produced a short, 1 minute (ish) video from each show - for social media.etc - I feel this pushed me to create, obviously a challenge I enjoy. From little preshow talks, to an avengers analogy at the end of the last one - I'm happy with them all!
First up was Dundee, Fat Sam's to be specific. An upgrade from the Dundee show on the previous tour to say the least.
Next up was Worcester, in a tiny record store in the middle of the city. Crazy venue... we were all a bit surprised but hyped for the show - with load in having to take a total of 5 minutes we were all super tired.
After the Worcester show we went down and stayed with the dudes in Led By Lanterns at band pads in Birmingham. Super cool dudes and through the wall of our room we heard their sweet sweet harmonies as they practised for their acoustic show.
Next day we drove up to Manchester and headed straight to Taco Bell. As you do.
Onto the venue, where the boys in Where There's Life and Everyone and Anyone were to open for an Offspring tribute band at Rebellion, Manchester.
With an incredible show put down by the Offspring Tribute band, Manchester was a solid success! Now... onto Wales! Staying at the house of one of the members of Everyone and Anyone, we drove to North Wale. Whilst in Rhyl, we went to the bar that one of the dudes in Everyone and Anyone's parents own, and I saw a snooker table wth a cool blue wall and window light.. so.. boom. Picture time. I called the guys back up stairs and we shot this photo -
The Wrexham show was at Rewind, Wrexham, thanks to the dudes in Reckless Promotions. The venue was super small but to be honest, that just added to it - with about 30 people there, the place was rammed!
All in all... another stellar trip with the guys in Where There's Life, and its was cool to make new friends in the form of Everyone and Anyone !
