Goes Cube Tour Day Thirty

The final show on the road before we head back to NYC...what would Pittsburgh have in store for Goes Cube?

We started out the day in Columbus and went for lunch with Emily from Necropolis. I got a hummus and vegetable sandwich with a side salad and it was delicious. Boy I really needed some veggies after a month of bar and gas station food. Despite what you might think, shopping at a gas station each day is not a glamorous lifestyle. Chex mix, trail mix, water...repeat. That's my secret for surviving consistent gas station shopping. And then grilled chicken sandwiches at the venues, but I already covered that. Anyway, thankfully the restaurant had free wireless internet and I managed to post yesterday's update as we had lunch. In no time we were back on the road headed for Pittsburgh.

Goes Cube had played this particular venue already, but that was back before Kenny was a member of the band. Therefore, the show yesterday promised to be a bit different than the last one. Unfortunately the band was paired with six separate solo avant-garde guitarists. They each played about 20 minutes or so (which set the stage for a rather short set for Goes Cube) and they all were kind of terrible. Okay, I didn't see them all. But of the four I did see, none of them were anything I'd recommend anyone listening to ever.

So, this poorly curated lineup (mixed with tour exhaustion) didn't exactly make for the best show of the tour. Goes Cube started out sluggishly, displayed perhaps a bit of fatigue, but finished strong. Although it was apparent to me that they'd rather not have been stuck in the middle of six guitarists practicing in public, I'm not sure anyone else would've necessarily known. What I mean to say is that they still brought it. They always do. It was loud and it was rocking, and then it was over. Six short songs, then we left. Left the venue, left town, and drove all the way home. Kenny and David battled through the night to bring us safely from Pittsburgh to New York. We arrived this morning at 5am and have today off before we head to the FINAL show of this tour at Mercury Lounge tomorrow. It's going to be AWESOME. I guarantee it. Also, I bet it will sell out, so get there early.

okay, first of all i really liked the little bit i saw of Pittsburgh. a lot.

secondly, fine. FINE. here is your list of explanations about the dome, or lack thereof, in Ohio. of the below, three were made up, one was found by myself online and the other was given to us as an explanation by the Auburn information service people. feel free to decide which explanation works best for your purposes and believe that one:

A. there was a dome, but in 1885 a giant fictitious lumberjack chopped it off and used it as a bowl for oatmeal
B. they intended to have a dome but ran out of money during construction and gave up on the idea
C. it's a building done in the doric style and no dome was ever intended
D. the governor of Ohio at the time of construction was less than moderately endowed and viewed a domed capitol building as a massive insult
E. the dome is there but only true Ohioans can see it. word on the street is that it is "dometastic", "super mega domey", and "rather unbedomeable".

there, happy now?

*it should be noted that there are actually 10 capitol buildings in the US that don't have domes

You missed the only true explanation.
There is a dome, a retractable invisible dome created by a lizard/skeletal robot hybrid alien race posing as humans who are taking over the government and need quick access to and from the capitol building so that they may easily mount or escape an alien invasion. Those 10 states without visible domes: they are the alien epicenters. In fact, there are lizard/alien/robot babies born in these states every day (approximately 1 hatched every 13 minutes). This has been thoroughly documented on the DiscoveryHD channel's two part series “THEY LIVE” and “V”.

One of my favorite lyrics describes the Zagats of highway travel by David Dondero / A Convenience Store Connoisseur/ He writes and the ultimate road weary touring tales.
Great stories.
