9.19.07: Boise, ID: Mississippi Nights

We left L.A. at 6am, after a crazy day of filming Kimmel; we arrived in Boise safely but toasted. This was our first show of the tour with Eisley, which I believe will be a nice fit for the bill. They are really sweet and talented people.

Miraculously, when show time came around, I felt okay, despite getting only a total of eight hours of sleep for the last three nights. Moreover, the experience of traveling through airports just wears me out. I can't stand airports, and hope that something changes in this country (and the world for that matter) concerning the manner in which this industry is ran.

Anyway, we had a great show in Boise. Frankly, I was surprised at the turn out. We had a fun time playing, and the crowd seemed to be enjoying themselves, too.

I have a friend that was at the show. She said you guys were amazing. She is thinking of making the drive here in October. :) I hope she does. She said she saw Paul outside in the afternoon and he still looked a little "green" from the taping. LOL

I have to agree with your assessment of Eisley. I saw them here on August 3 for their acoustic set and loved it. And they are definitely some very nice people. I enjoyed talking to Boyd quite a lot. The downside of a GA event is that I could never talk my husband into going to see them. He likes Eisley quite a bit. I ordered Combinations and he pilfered it. LOL

I hope you were able to get your glasses were fixed. I can't do without mine.
