Summer Love Tour: Kansas City

September 1, 2011

PHC staffer Nic Vetter is on the Summer Love Tour with Garrison, Fred Newman, Andra Suchy, Heather Masse, Sara Watkins, and The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band and will update us periodically from the road.

Great show in Kansas City, especially once it hit dusk and the big Missouri sun settled down a bit. I didn't get a chance to eat any of the famous KC 'cue, not that I would have because I'm the token vegetarian of the group, but surely the thick, sweet sauce would complement mock duck or other soy based meat analogs quite nicely. We're on our way back to Minneapolis for the weekend for the State Fair show, so the tirelessly working crew and performers will have a chance to sleep on a bed that isn't perpetually in motion. I have to say, though, there's a lullaby quality to the the hum of the highway and shifting gears whilst being rocked in a contained dark cradle-like bunk. The occasional rumble strip massage adds a soothing effect. I haven't slept better in years.
