Anodes Returns From Life on the Road In One Piece, Shares Wisdom
Some dark, shaky, DIY-basement camera footage from Anodes show in Nashville on February 2.
I just mentioned Alta. We also got to see Itto in Chicago. Those guys never disappoint. Altar of Complaints and Siddhartha were both really awesome to see in Tennessee. We also got to see Hank., Khandu, Earth Witch, Battle Royale, and Keef Mountain all on this tour. Plus we got to see Regret, the Informer nine days in a row!!
You've braved the road a few times. How was this tour different than previous treks?
This trip was different because we were with another band. Luckily for us they were a lot of fun to be around.
Tell us about any unwelcome surprises. Dish.
We had a tire blowout in Kentucky that delayed us all kinds of time and we ended up getting to the show so late that night that each band ended up playing ten minute sets on Coma Regalia's gear. I think the worst part of that day was having to miss Coma Regalia.
What lessons did you learn, if any, on this tour?
I need to lighten up and have more fun.
What wisdom would you like to impart on groups looking to do D.I.Y. Touring?
Expect to have fun. Be ready for anything. Bring toilet paper.
