Well, the brief weekend away from the tour was a nice break, and I enjoyed the time with my family, but it's awesome to be back with the guys. Yesterday I flew into Denver around the same time as the van pulled into town. I was greeted at the airport by Kenny's brother Dan (who happens to live in Denver, we're staying with him - he's super nice and a great teammate to play bar shuffleboard with...we're undefeated) and then met up with the band a few minutes later. As I was saying, we went to a bar near the apartment we're staying at and played a bit of shuffleboard. Dan and I teamed up to beat the heck out of Goes Cube over and over again. They must like to lose because they're currently asking for another shot at us. Patience Goes Cube, I must tell the world how much you kicked ass last night. THEN you can taste defeat all over again. Shake annnnd bake.
Last night Goes Cube played Larimer Lounge. Supposedly the past two shows haven't gone so well, and last night started out seeming to be another so-so show. The sound guy (smelly) disappeared as soon as they started and the sound during the first two songs was awful. No vocals, barely any bass - not how Goes Cube should sound. And I should know. I've seen them a few times. Well, once Dr. Smell returned to the sound board things got worked out and the band kicked it into high gear. They ripped through song after song as those in attendance danced and jumped and basically went nuts. It was fantastic. Goes Cube gave Denver all they had and Denver gave it right back. I was really happy to have my friends Wes and Cameron come out to the show and had a blast catching up and hanging out with them. I think Cam ended up with two broken drumsticks, a shirt, and a CD. After playing about 12 songs (roughly 3 more than usual), and selling quite a nice amount of merchandise, we packed up the van and headed back to Dan's apartment. On the way we stopped for another trademark capitol building jump shot (above) and hit up Denver's chicken tender district (Burger King).
Denver, we love you.
