I remember waking up to an alarm clock and throwing something. I don’t remember what it was or how far I chucked it, but the four hours of sleep I got sucked my eyeballs into my head and they were not going to pop into place at 6:30 am. I finally got them to cooperate at around 7, took what could be my last shower for a few, and stumbled outside with all of my luggage…minus whatever it was that I threw.
I started the 7 hour trek like an extra from the Walking Dead but after getting has and a hazelnut coffee that tasted peculiarly similar to a Cinnabon, (not complaining) things started to shape up.
Spent a couple bucks on a mcgriddle.
I felt like that was my favorite meal thus far, so I give that sentence it’s own paragraph. Then I hit Utah.
Okay, so maybe I realize that it’s April. Maybe in my head I know that some places get snow up until May… But I am not exaggerating when I say that this had to be the first time I’ve ever seen it this late in the year…
The snowstorm I ran into was absolutely fierce! I didn’t expect t, didn’t even know it was a possibility, and as I listened to Colin Cowherd explain all the reasons that the Angels would win the world series this year, I suddenly realized that I was in basketball shorts, a tshirt and sandals in 18 degree weather…
I drove by BYU and stopped at a music store that neither my Garmin or Siri could seem to find and picked up a couple cables. That’s when I realized that Park City is a ski resort….and so much more…
Lisa, one of the owners of the Silver Star let me set up my gear and then took me on a tour of the city. It started looking familiar when she mentioned that Park City is where the Sundance Film Festival is held every year… Smh… Duh!!! I recognize this place from Entourage!!!!
I got to play on the local radio station, KPCW and Randy, the host is a fine gentleman. I played “Pocket Change” and “LA is not My Home” and was gone as quick as I had gotten there. We drove back to the Silver Star and through the dangerous, where-the-hell-are-the-stop-signs streets and made it safely back.
For dinner, they served me a chicken cassoulet that was amaaaazing. Amaaaaaaaaaazing!
I played 3 hours with no breaks to a full room, but only about 10 people that I liked… (the rest were having nice conversations…) I wanted to play Rob’s song, “Background Music” but I believe there is a court order out that I’m supposed to keep my rapping to a minimum.
The night ended and I looked through my phone to find an email from Jeff Berkley with the FIRST DRAFT of my album!!!! I’m about halfway through dissecting it now… Omg… Jeff is a genius. Wow.
So I’m 4 1/2 hours outside of Coeur d’Alene and bored, but not tired. This 10 hour drive has gone pretty quickly…. But… You have to wait till tomorrow to find out why… Cause it’s the 4th day!!! 🙂
See you tonight at 6:00 at Calypso’s in Coeur d’Alene!
