Jeramie Kling – The Absence – October 2013 Tour Blog 2
Day 2 – Raleigh N.C.
More of the same with the scent emanating from the back of the van… What’s crazy about this show is we were playing a venue called the Maywood, we were really excited because we’ve only played at Volume 11 and as we pulled onto the street to the venue we got the eerie feeling we’ve been there before! Everything looked so familiar and BOOM… The Maywood used to be Volume 11. The nice thing was the owner, Keith, was the same owner! Great guy! We all sat down after the long drive and had about 3 rounds of shots! While our awesome crew, Cody and Lex loaded in our gear, we went to grab dinner and had some great sushi downtown. Headed back to the venue and Atma Weapon was playing and then another killer local band played, Jonin, both bands ripped it up and then we met some die-hard fans that had made the long trek of over 3 hours to come see us play. Our fans are the greatest! And now it was time to get down to brass tacks!
(BEETLEJUICE VOICE) … IT’S SHOWTIME!
Pat and Taylor were really tight, had good vibes on stage and excellent crowd participation. We fed off the energy the crowd was feeding us! Can’t wait to play here again! We thank everyone at the Maywood and our loyal fans in NC.
Our good friend Paul put us up for the night; much needed shower and rest with dick and fart jokes. After much needed morning coffee it was back in the van and off to the next stop – Delaware Get ready!
