I left from RDU at 6:30 EST in the morning the day of the Spokane show and got to Seattle at about 12:30 PT. i waited about 15 minutes for Hated’s plane to land and meet up with him. Then Chris showed up a few minutes later and the adventure begins. We left straight from the airport to Spokane. It was about a four hour drive. We get there about 2 hours early and just chill in the parking lot, toss a couple back then walked around the town a little bit before going inside to get in line for the show. Once in line, we meant Down Ass Chic then the doors opened. The balcony was off limits for the show which was gay, so we went to the very front. This show was the first ever that Down had an opening band. They’re called Danava. I kinda liked ‘em but I think I might be the only one. They jammed man and the guitarist was pretty damn good, in my opinion.
SPOKANE! WE ARE DOWN!!!!!
DOWN!!! Fuck, they played such a great set and did it like the champs they are. They closed with Nothing In Return for, I think, only the second time ever. I’m almost speechless about the show, it was just so badass. Phil sounded phenomenal, anyone who doubts that man’s singing ability can fuck off, and the whole band did for that matter. We were right in front of Pepper so we got to see him play up close which was awesome. After the show, I got a pic from Rex too. Once we left the venue and went outside, we saw Down Ass Chic waiting out there, she had a rough night to say the least. We went out to the buses and i got an autograph from Rex for Nole. Rex seems like a really cool dude just from the total of about 8 seconds that I’ve meant him now.
After that we left and where did we end up? fucking Idaho hahaha. Gave Down Ass Chic a ride back to Seattle. Got back to Nole’s around 6:30 in the morning and passed out. Nole was a soldier and went to class at 9:30 while me and Hated rested lol. And so begins Day 2 of TH and Down in the Northwest!
