How did each city treat you? You probably don't want to play favorites, but do it anyway!

Josh: We were treated well everywhere. In terms of the shows as well as the venue names, Milwaukee, WI. (The Michael Jordan Skram Dunk Arena) and Kansas City, MO. (Satans Gay Acid Bath) were hands down the craziest.  We got picked up by Count Your Lucky Stars during our show in K.C., which kind of made that night more of a life highlight, rather than simply a tour highlight. Kalamazoo, MI. and Rockford, IL. were huge heavy hitters as well. 

Eric: I would have to say that Milwaukee, Kalamazoo, and Kansas City were my favorite places. In Milwaukee we raged with Brian Franklin (Khandu), and Justin Gaworski (Alta). In Kalamazoo we got to hang out with The Reptilian and listen to their new record. In Kansas City we hung with the guys from Joie De Vivre, Warren Franklin and the Founding Fathers (who we played with on the first day of our tour), and Empire! Empire!. It's hard to top that.

Conor: My favorite night was Kansas City. Not because I got crowd-surfed on our last song, not because we got signed to CYLS, it was because that was the night I caught my Zapdos and my Multres in Pokemon Blue. They helped me destroy the Pokemon League the next day.

Seeing as you've hit the road, one would assume you've come across a hidden band or three that's worth damn. Who should we be listening to?

Josh: Joie De Vivre, Warren Franklin and the Founding Fathers, Alta, Khandu, Brighter Arrows, Empire! Empire! (i was a lonely estate), The Reptilian, Faun and a Pan Flute, and Jeremy Waun, Bear (The Ghost)

Conor: Faun and a Pan Flute, Faun and a Pan Flute, Faun and a Pan Flute, Faun and a Pan Flute, Faun and a Pan Flute.

Any stinkers on this tour?

Josh: We were very fortunate. The only mishap that comes to mind is when I locked our keys in our van right before we left Champaign-Urbana. We have AAA, who were kind enough to send an incompetent lock smith who gave up almost immediately. So Jon (drummer) just took his tools and opened the door himself in ten seconds.

Conor: I used my Master Ball on Articuno rather than saving it and link trading it for when I play Gold Version next tour.  I could have used it on one of the Legendary Dogs.  Sometimes the road can be unforgiving.
