on tour w/ Against Me! - Seattle to Los Angeles
Warner Bros and Against Me told me to get my butt up to Seattle and hop on tour with them to do some live and press photos. You won't see any press photos here but you will eventually in the real world.
I was meeting up with the band in Seattle at EndFEST.
AGAINST ME! IN SEATTLE WASHINGTON AT QWEST FIELD
The next day the band played Portland. I had never been in the actual city part, but it was pretty amazing. There was a rad old school arcade across the street from the venue with a real photobooth in it. As we were doing press stuff, Tom found his soulmate Lil' Michael Jackson

The next day was an off day, which we spent in Redding, California at a hotel. Andrew turned his room into a sports bar to watch the Titans/Saints game on Monday night football before we all went to Olive Garden (it's soo good on tour).
Back in Seattle, I watched this show on DVD with James and Andrew called the Wire. If you haven't seen it, please go check it out. In the next town, Chico CA, there was a record store up from the venue that had the first season on DVD. Seriously, go check it out. This whole thing had nothing to do with photos.

After the show Tom and his fiance Heather, Steak Mountain (chris) and I went to a diner across the street from the venue. There are no photos of Steak Mountain because you cannot handle his awesomeness.

In Santa Cruz they filed the movie the Lost Boys. Against Me!'s merch girl Bridey bought the movie and played it on loop all day because we were gonna go do press photos at one of the locations from the movie. It was closed, so I got them to beat up Jordan instead.
A friend of mine from Birmingham, Ellie, was at Apple's HQ taking her Apple genius test and she came out to the show to hang. I totally slacked on photos of extra people on this tour.

So the next day I woke up in Anaheim and had to get a taxi ($99.00) to LAX. I didn't take any photos because I slacked off. Here's a couple from me seat!
