Goes Cube Tour Day Eleven

Yesterday we got up and out for another daytime show. The venue, Ruta Maya, turned out to have a nice sized stage and very good sound. Unfortunately, the turnout for many of the bands wasn't the greatest. Still, each band played well and it was awesome to see Takka Takka and Foreign Islands. The new Takka Takka songs sounded really great live and it's going to be a lot of fun to get to see Foreign Islands day after day in the second part of this tour. And, even though they arrived late because of their other show on the same day, A Place to Bury Strangers kicked ass. Go figure, they rule. You can hear a few songs from two of these bands below.

Goes Cube had the benefit of the biggest crowd of the day and they played an excellent set. Tight, loud, rocking. Lots of clapping. It was a great show overall and lots of fun to see the other three NY bands. Today we'll be heading out towards New Mexico, so it's time for me to grab a quick shower before we hit the road. But first, an idea. I'd like you to let me know (in the comments section of this post) if there are any questions you'd like me to ask Goes Cube on camera for the documentary. You post your question here and I'll ask it. And I will indeed ask whatever questions you post here. No guarantee they'll make it into the final film or anything, just thought it might be a fun little experiment. So off you go then, bring on the questions.

great idea! i'd like to know the following:

what's it like never knowing how many people you'll be playing for each night and how do you think different parts of the country have responded to your music?

ie - is there a town that seemed more into your songs than the others?

David: will you ever create a personal myspace profile like the rest of humanity? Or will you continue to scoff at its omnipresence until the day in which its existence in one's life becomes imperative to survival, like you did the mobile phone?

matt,

i'm loving the tour diary -- please give my love to the goes cubers!

i have a question that MUST be answered:

is david a kamikaze pilot? does he plan to remove that g-damn headband at any point during this tour? & how bad does that thing reek? i imagine it smells a bit like ass.

Goes Cube, what's it like to kick ass so much?

Matt, what was your favorite capital building?

David, if you could go back in time and talk to 'David right before he went on the road' what would you tell him?

Kenny, hypothetically speaking, say someone was just getting ready to start playing the drums, what kind of sticks would you recommend they start with? And what kind of sticks do you use?

anna said...

did you ever overhear a neighbor having sex at one of those skeevey hotels you stayed at?
if so, did you turn up the tv volume to drown them out or did you put your ears to the wall?
