After a nice talk and some coffee, I made my way from Madison to Nashville. The drive was a little rainy, with even a little hail, but I was able to made it to my friends’ Thomas and Sarah’s place. Adventures included eating at the best tex-mex restaurant I’ve ever been to, exploring some of Nashville’s natural splendor (cheesy much?), watching the Bruins game downtown, and shakes followed by mac & cheese and South Park. Riggedy rad.
Day 6 started off with some more exploring around Nashville, including a stop at Grimey’s record store and Third Man Records. After yet another meal consisting of tacos, Thomas and I, with our friend Tony, drove up to Clarksville for my show at the Coup. The venue was pretty neat, and the people there were cool. I got to play with a guy who played the hammered dulcimer, and he was really good. Tony recorded some really sweet videos throughout the night, so hopefully I’ll be able to post those soon.
For Day 7, I said goodbye to Thomas in Nashville, and made my way to Cincinnati, OH to play at Taza with friend Austin Miller, who’s also from Orlando. After the drive through Kentucky, I met up with Austin at his relatives’ house, and we drove into Cincinnati together. Taza was a really cool place, and the people there were really nice. We got to drive through downtown (thanks to my GPS) and we saw fireworks over the Reds stadium. It was pretty neat. So far I’ve had a place to stay everyday, which is a beautiful thing. And my clothes are spinning in the washer right now. Mmmm yeaaaah.
