STUSA17 Blog 21/22 : End of the Road

So, after seven states, 12 performances, and countless McDonalds’, we arrived in Richmond Kentucky for our final gig of the tour. We could see the university from a mile off, with its huge campus, and, when we arrived, the arts centre certainly didn’t disappoint. As had become second nature after three weeks, we piled into the venue and sought out the green room for snacks and wifi. There’s a lot to be said for the more intimate venues that we’ve played on tour, but there’s nothing quite like walking out onto the stage of a university theatre with its tiered balconies and thousands of seats for the first time.

STUSA17 Blog 19/20: Kentucky Khaos

We rose at a relatively normal time, for once, and clambered onto the bus for a hopeful 11am departure to drive to Kentucky.

As Elio had to drop off our trailer and bus early in the morning but our flight was in the afternoon, we had a fair amount of time to kill in the airport. So we did what any reasonable group of young men would do. We built a fort out of our luggage, and we named it “The Air Fort”. We decided

STUSA17 Blog 16: Back to Business

‘Twas gone first light when I, through fitful slumber, saw the sharp Utah rays drench the Rey Inn’s courtyard and pierce my folded curtains. I rose quickly on account of my companion Robert, whose blunt request to silence my iPhone alarm saw that I rolled out of bed to cross the room. This I performed in a manner akin to that of a sow turfed out of warm hay (that is to say, sluggish and disgruntled, grumbling meagre curses). The pair of us joined the rest of our rag-tag bunch in the dining hall, though this perhaps gives an air of grandeur to the pokey side room that could be
