Day 2 and 3 - Memphis

Hey everybody! I was planning on writing a little bit Thursday , but since we didn't have a show, once we hit Memphis day drinking kind of took over (oops). We left Little Rock around noon and made it here around 3pm.

Our host while we're here is an old friend of Cody's. He's got an apartment off of main street with a beautiful view of the Mississippi river, conveniently walking distance from Beale Street and most of downtown Memphis' best bars. At one point we were on Beale Street at Jerry Lee Lewis' bar, upstairs, by ourselves, with a piano and some Fireball. We got back to the apartment around 2am and were up getting dressed Friday morning by 6:30 for our appearance on Local Memphis Live, which is broadcast by the local ABC station. It was insane. Cody got to wear a lapel mic, and we got to see all the inner workings of a local news show (shades of HIMYM). Then, we got to play one of Cody's songs and everybody treated us like big shots!

We got back to Cody's friend's (aka the unofficial mayor of Memphis) and napped off our hangovers, walked over to the Gibson factory, did some daytime touristy stuff on Beale, and finished off the night with an awesome gig at The Brass Door. We made some good connections for the return trip, so when we come through in a week and a half we might have some even better opportunities.

In the morning, onward to Nashville where we meet up with my extremely talented former front-lady Dana and our first house show of the tour!

See ya,
