Okay, so we begin again! Happy New Year from Mission Control in L.A., as ACIDIC’s coast-to-coast tour with Trapt begins! Our valiant crew took off, about 4:30pm, heading due north. There are five of them, with Michael Gossard, Ted Dubrawski, and Matt Whitaker, plus a VERY excited Josh Bennett making his professional tour debut in the second guitarist/backup vocalist position. Our veteran tour manager, Andrew Untersee, once again, is shepherding the herd.
The Gray Whale (tour van) is detailed, winterized, diesel’d up, and stuffed like a Thanksgiving turkey with blankets, sleeping bags, food, mittens, serious knit caps and other assorted cold weather wear, lots of vitamin C, equipment, and merch! They’ll have “Copper Man” CDs with them to sell on tour, and they’ll be showcasing a whole bunch of new songs from that new CD!
The first stop is Thursday night at El Corazon in Seattle, and it’s onward, and eastward, from there!
More when I get it…
