Going to California… 150 150 The Band of Heathens

Aspen 09

We’ve had some memorable shows this past week and a half in New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. Some highlights so far have been playing the Mile High Festival in Denver where we also got to catch the Black Keys, Paolo Nutini, and India.Arie; a show at a great little theater in Durango called the Abbey Theater; Villapalooza and a day off with our friends in Carbondale going white water rafting; a show in Aspen on the mountain at Snowmass where we played L.A. County Blues in the town where Hunter S. Thompson ran for mayor against the “long-hair”; and it was great hanging with our friends after a show in Park City last night. In Durango, Seth took everybody’s money in a late night poker tournament with a bunch of the staff from the Abbey Theater. Needless to say, it’s been a good tour so far.

We just arrived in California after a long day driving across Utah and Nevada. We made a stop at the Bonneville Salt Flats where they set all the land speed records. Pretty amazing. That’s about it for now. Looking forward to this weeks shows here in California.
