check, check, 1, 2. is this thing on? it's a bit dusty, but good to be back.
today we are up in the fingernail portion of the glove-looking state of michigan. i promise, look at the state, and we're up way north. it's a new festival called the big ticket festival, and it seems to be going pretty well so far, especially for the first day of it ever.
one of the stagehands saw us eyeing his sweet ride and let us take it for a spin around the parking lot. we all took turns pretending we were going to jump stuff like buses and maybe even the stage, but 1) this thing won't go fast enough, and 2) we could die.
after some dinner and a complete raid of the ice cream freezer in catering, the guys took the stage and had a really fun show. the big highlight for everyone tonight was the unveiling of the new song 'mess of me'. it was the first time they ever played it live, and it sounded awesome. drew just rips into the intro. so much fun.
one festival down, one to go, then on to canada, eh. don't forget to follow @switchfoot on twitter if you haven't yet. the guys post stuff all day. good times. - ab.
