moosebutter news and musings
Tour, tour, tour, tour... the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy, the joy the joy, the joy the joy of being on tour.
Wednesday we cruised around northern Montana, did school diddies in Highwood and Geraldine - GREAT KIDS! Even the one who stole our poster off the wall. Then, show in the evening at Ft. Benton Elementary School Auditorium. Good show! Loved the red hat society ladies - hope we sang purty enough for you.
We had a cool fun aftershowparty at "Wake Cup" Coffee House (yar, 'tis a funny name) - run by the daughter of Ed who run's Brother Van's Bistro.
Another shout-out to Brother Van's Bistro - PLEASE people go to this restaurant it is so GOOOOOOOD and needs your business. Also, there is a river across the street!
The aftershowparty was fun, a few folks there, we sang Roni Mor! I love that song. I got to eat more of their amazing ribs. Also, great ice cream. Also, chips and salsa. And we sang some.
Thursday we dropped into Helena and did an evening show at Carrol College. Loosey-goosey, informal and fun, we spent like 15 minutes jabbering about old TV shows. Fraggle Rock. Mister Belvedere. H.R. Puff 'n' Stuff. Nostalgia!!!!
Now, we go to Ronan - it's in Middle Earth.
Okay, so we're on the road - Tim, Chris, Weston, and Jeremiah - Glen is home holding down the fort - all kicking it in Wyoming and Montana.
We drove all night last Friday to get to Gillette, WY for a booking conference - lots of books, believe me - and in the midst of the short (12 minute) set for potential-hire-us-to-sing-in-our-community-people Weston busted out the best rendition of the Estonian National Anthem EVER.
Monday we ran around the town of Dillon, MT and did a night show there - very cool. UN BELIEVABLE and excrutiatingly LONG rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody. Also, we made a guy run laps around the auditorium. Also, Jeremiah is bald.
Tuesday we came up here to Ft. Benton - top of the Missouri river, it is - and did a cool school show and chilled in town a bit. Ate dinner at an AMAZING restaurant called Brother Van's Bistro. All I can say is, RIBS. If we had an official group mascot (other than Weston) it would be those ribs. Oh, mama.
Other neat things on the trip: we took pictures of the Hardee's drive-through crew; Tim found a mutant pair of gummy-orange-slices (mini-sized) that looked uncannily like Morpheus's sunglasses from The Matrix; Chris has read a lot; Weston has begun talking like a pirate; Jeremiah enchanted the audience in Ft. Benton by doing the truffle shuffle to win the cheerleading-move competition; countless bugs have died at the hands of our merciless windshield.
I have Tourette's. Not supposed to be a bad bun, just the cold hard fact. Weston-induced Tourette's, it is.
