Rain don't bother me..or at least not Bamboozle

While I might live in the ever misty city of Seattle, rain in South East is definitely not something to mess with -- unless you're the Bamboozle Roadshow! As we peeled out of Nashville after the show on Sunday night, we made the trek across 44 and were slammed by intense winds that threw our vehicle ALL over the road. When we saw Waffle House and a hotel at an upcoming exit, we decided to pull off, chow on some waffles and camp out for the night near Chattanooga.

We got some good sleep in (the first time in I don't know....well since the start of the tour) and pulled out around 8 am for a long 10 1/2 hour drive. We hit tons of hard rain along the way...at one point we hit a puddle so big it covered up our entire windshield. SCARY, but the boys handled it like champs. We pulled into St. Petersburg at 6:30 pm on Monday night and hit up my family's washing machine and dryer...ahhh so nice to have clean clothes and shower. So fresh and so clean.

When we rocked into the venue midafternoon thinking that the rain was going to keep us from having a good show.

Jannus Landing in St. Petersburg is an outside venue, but the bands gathered together and decided a sold out show still needed to be played. They pulled together the COOLEST acoustic set. Each band gave a unique performance, they're all so exceptionally talented!

Tonight we're heading over to Hard Rock Cafe in Tampa to hang out before we head on to Ft. Lauderdale in the morning. That's going to be a rockin' good show.

For fun, here's a couple band factoids you may not have known:


..... Tommy from Mercy Mercedes AND Alex M. from CAB sleep with their eyes open!
..... Kyle from FTSK can sew!
..... Mercy Mercedes favorite snacks are hummus and pita bread.

Ah, I love being behind the scenes. So cool.
