The Road is Frought with Human Error

In Hidden Number, News on August 23, 2011 at 3:28 am

The aptly named Human_Error tour is over, and we’ve finally had some time to catch our collective breath. Here is the saga.

The Human_Error Tour Must Have Errors

Loading the van

Loading the van

Error_1  The first job was to find some decent transportation. At one point, we were actually seriously considering installing a hitch on a Prius. But luckily we were able to borrow a Subaru Outback from some very dear family. Once we had the trailer loaded, which is an understatement since the trailer was twice the size of what we needed, the car would not shift out of park. I was thinking, Oh great, we’re not even going to be able to get on the road. But luckily Justin knew how to override the shifting mechanism and get us in gear. Things were getting very, very real.

Who is Justin? Why, he is our Touring Bassist, playlist dj, and Mechanic! The Joe Stuhff that we all know and love, is busy getting the Father of the Year Award for 2011. In fact his whole family was upgrading to some nicer diggs around the time of this tour. No more view of the Space Needle, but who needs that anyway when you get to give your youngest child a real bedroom? Joe is our hero. So is Justin, who Saved The Day several times. More on that later.

Error_2  We got lucky in the past by borrowing projectors so that we could show off Josh’s heartfelt and epic visual display. Yet no unlucky sap would volunteer for the tour. So we stopped off at Fry’s to grab a good projector at a good value (an Acer). The salesperson was extremely helpful. He loaded us down with a ton of accessories. Later, we would discover that the projector came with all the same accessories. This would become the first set of returns we would need to make after the tour. More on this later. After a sandwich and a smoothy, we loaded the car with a pallette of water, our new projector, and 4 fancy lads–and hit the open road for Portland.

John Tesh

So yeah, last night’s show ended up being dedicated to John Tesh.  Who saw that coming?   I didn’t catch it, but Jake told us later at hash brown town that in the middle of Human Error, Joe screamed “Teeeeeeeeeeeeeesh!” a la Wrath of Khan.

We talked to Datura Blues about some future shows, so good things.   PLUS, you just can’t go wrong with Malachi running your sound.  He’s like an audio talisman.  PLUS, we got Super Fan bringing the party.  Everybody wins.  And then Mark totally shows up with photos from the Josephine show and a VHS of our last gig with My Bones and Organs.   Let’s see if we’re not too shy to post any of it.

So yeah, not much else to talk about this time… Any ideas on future blog posts from us?  Anything you want to discuss.  The internet is your oyster.
