it's not very often that you get to have shows around the corner from the world's 3rd largest fire hydrant. that happened today though in lovely beaumont, texas.
for pretty much much all of us on this tour, our day today started with going to the barking dog coffee shop down the street and enjoying the food, the coffee, and the free wifi. its a great little joint. we'll vsit there again later.
today's show was weird because it probably is one of the few outdoor shows this tour, and it starts way early. like, the switchfoot guys started playing at like 7. it all sounded a bit weird, but watching them play with the sun going down was pretty great.
after the show jon 'pied-pipered' his way over to the coffee shop and played some acoustic jams. it was one of the first aftershows in awhile, and it was so much fun.
after the show we headed to a hotel to shower, watch some wilco on SNL, and hit up our first waffle house of the tour. sweet tea is pretty much one of the best beverages ever. hands down. (ps, jamie is not yelling in the last photo. i think i just caught him on the phone.)
