Tour: Milwaukee and Stevens Point

Saturday, April 3, 2004


So I’m on tour with Stephanie Rearick and MiLkBabY.

We kicked off the tour at Linneman’s in Milwaukee on Thursday night. Jim Linneman recently renovated the place, and the sound system is awesome. Unfortunately we didn’t get much of a crowd, despite getting pretty good preshow press. I hung out with Lisa at the bar and talked to this woman who used to date a Fabio look-a-like. But he was too dumb, so she advised him to pursue a career in the military. Now she handles fish at an upscale grocery story.

I also met these two guys who came by to post flyers for their show. They heard a few songs during soundcheck and decided to hang out and catch my set, which was nice. They’re in a band called Telectro. Check it out.

Last night we played in Stevens Point at the Mission. We drove up early and did a little thing on 90.5fm with DJ Jeff, talking up the tour and the Uvulittle label. Then I played a couple songs on the air, which is always fun.

Jordan and Silas at the Mission Coffeehouse are doing awesome things. I really love that place. Also on the bill was Shara Worden from a band called Awry. She lives in Brooklyn, in Park Slope, and I really liked her stuff, so I’m gonna see about playing some shows with her out eastish.

After I played I hung out with some of the local kids, Vlad the Russian and Kellen and Britney and Dominique. We played Gin Rummy and shot the shit. Goin on tour is a good way to break yourself of the fear of talking to strangers. If you have that problem. Which I do. Did!
