You all know me. I rarely exaggerate. So when I say that tonight was AMAZING, know that it was exactly that.
I got to Boise (pronounced Boy-Cee… Not Boy-zee… Just so you know….) around 11am. The goal was to get there by 2, but I didn’t get as much sleep as I had hoped, so I got there early. The drive was pretty exciting, but scary as well. Anywhere named “Deadman’s Pass” is gonna put chills in my spine… I slept at a rest stop for a bit, but the sun killed my sleep. Boo.
When I got to Boise I ran into Walmart to get some odds and ends. Boise State’s football team was playing, and everyone was proudly wearing their Blue and Orange. I tried to be funny, and asked the Walmart worker if they had any Boise State shirts in other colors. She looked at me like I was an idiot… That was a new low for me…
I got to do an interview on Radio Boise, an independent radio station on Main St. I played “Just Let Me Love You” and “Pocket Change” and Wayne was awesome. Thanks to everyone who tuned in!
I had about 4 hours to kill, so I took my car to a spot in the shade and slept for a couple of hours before getting to The Crux.
I played with Mt. Joy and The Fiddle Junkies. Both of them were fantastic and I loved their sets. Everyone was incredibly kind and attentive and my set was so much fun because of it. Ten Gallon Cat helped promote and book the show and I can’t recommend any promoters more than her!
Tomorrow, I’m in Denver, which is 12 hours and a time change away. I’m hoping to get about halfway before napping, but I can tell its going to be a struggle. I’ll be playing with Katey Laurel and Rachel James at the Walnut Room, and if you know anyone in Denver, please send them out!
Go visit Boise. It’ll be hard to leave.
