Wednesday 3 April
Awoke refreshed and then basked in the Atlanta sunshine sipping
fresh coffee. Headed out towards Raleigh and the weather took a
sudden turn for the worst as we enter North Carolina, home of James
Taylor. Forked lightening and horrendous thunder storms battered
the Scooter mobile. At least it washed off the insect road kill
that we had collected across America!
Arrived at the venue Kings Barcade in plenty of time
for soundcheck. We drove around looking for food and ended up at
a fast food joint called Snoopys where we were serenaded by
a passer-by called Clarence, who did a mean Luther Vandross impression
on the sidewalk for us. A Limo was parked on the street behind us
and the guys serving the food thought it was ours, believing us
to be famous. A perfect opportunity for a comedy camcorder moment
with the limousine pulling away only to reveal five scooters sat
Back at the venue, we hook up with Gregg and Steve from Red Eye
Distribution (See Austin Show) as their HQ is in the area. Great
guys really passionate about the music.
The show goes well. We then packed up quickly and head off for
the long overnight journey to the Big Apple.
