The river. And a strobelight.
We drove to Gainesville late last night so we could wake up and already be there with big plans. It was river day.
Tyler and Spencer, the Florida natives, had known about the Ichetucknee river since his youthful days. They tried to explain to us ahead of time how awesome it was.
Unsuccessful. We were blinded by its beauty, and probably had the best day of tour yet tubing down it. We brang empty bottles and drank straight from the river, jumped off trees hanging 30ft over the water, and swam next to a manatee.
Unforunately, we had to leave eventually. We had to get down to Gainesville to play this dran show that John miraculously booked yesterday to replace our Jacksonville date falling through.
The venue spoke very few words to me – “pure rock n’ roll“. I can best describe it by saying I really felt like we were a small concert scene straight out of Wayne’s World.
We got the most pricless shots of us transforming into arena rock for one night. And one night only.
Now (the next day) is our day off! We’re at the beach all day and kickin’ it at Tyler’s place in Celebration right outside Orlando. Will still make a video and blog for tomorrow.
