fiddin' to hit it!
The OakTeam hits the road in the morning headed to Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus and Lexington. This shit is gonna be ignunt! Most of us are in the van with our new Tom-Tom gadget loaded with the voice of Mr. T telling us where to turn. "Take a right, fool!" Can't wait for THAT! I'll be throwed him out by the time we get to Greensboro!
I guess I'm driving cause Dave has to hang around town to be with his sister on her 40th birthday, dass nice of him. He flies to Chicago Sunday morning and is going to the Cubs/White Sox game via the train upon arrival. I hope Chicago wins! Meanwhile, we'll be waking up in Indianapolis with only a few hours to go before we get there. Load in and soundcheck is at 5:30pm. At showtime, Robbie will talk for a while with me and Brian (from The Bottle Rockets) for a while before the OakTeam does about 45 minutes. Those guys will be next and the whole thing will be over by 10:30 or so. We'll drive to Toledo that night and then get up and head to Cleveland for our Monday night throwdown at the Beachland Ballroom. After that show we'll drive to Columbus so that we can get up and catch a 1 o'clock Columbus Clippers game. We'll rock the hell outta Columbus and stay there that night instead of the usual late night drive. Then the next morning we'll get up and drive to Lexington so that we can act the fool at Lynagh's Pub. We've got a pretty good following in Lexingtown so it should be fun. Now we just gotta figger out which night we are gonna wear our stupid ass OakTeam "jerseys"! Damn! They are dumb!
