Weekend Nachos Posts West Coast Tour Blog

Weekend Nachos has issued a full tour blog of the dates on their west coast tour. Excerpts from the blog follow:

"Hey everybody…this is a blog i decided to type up featuring thoughts and memories from our West Coast tour that we just got home from. It's long...and opinionated at times...and overall very positive and thankful, so if you're not into those things, simply don't read it!!! no one's forcing you to, you know? otherwise, enjoy.

"CHICAGO, IL... This was our tour kick-off show at the Albion House and I booked it. To be honest, I didn’t really stress too much about promoting this one. It was all local bands and I figured even if 40 or 50 people showed up, it’d still be fun. That being said, the turnout was mind-blowing. I think 125 paid, which for a basement show is fucking PACKED. Chicago has a bad-ass scene right now, there is a lot of local support at all times, which is proven when a show that wasn’t even promoted that well can draw over 100 kids no problem. Razor Fade opened the show and they are my favorite band in Chicago or anywhere else in the country. Like Bats and the Catburglars played too and everybody had a blast. During our set, I got a concussion not even 2 minutes in and somehow managed to ignore it for the rest of the set due to pure hardcore adrenaline.

"After we played, it hit me immediately and I was slurring my words, unable to complete sentences, and having lots of trouble responding to people when they were talking to me. It was sorta scary. So right away I paid the bands, paid Farn for doing sound, and paid the Albion House for doing the show, and then got the fuck outta there. I spent the rest of the evening on my girlfriend’s couch moaning in pain from the severe migraine that I received as a result of not taking care of my concussion properly. All in all it was a very painful, agonizing end to a very positive, joyous fun-filled night of Chicago Hardcore. Worth it!!!

"CEDAR FALLS, IA... This was another basement show that was well-attended with a lot of enthusiastic locals. The great thing about this show was getting to play with a bunch of friends bands, 2 of them being Razor Fade (again) and Boiling Over. Triple Chicago invasion of Iowa backed. We also got to play with Sorry Excuse, who are an incredible band from Kansas City. Their singer, Antonio, is someone who I consider to be a hardcore hottie. Total Italian heartthrob if you ask me. Ladies, get in touch. After this show, a lot of people went to go play kickball W.N. did not join them. My head was killing me from the concussion the night before, it was fucking cold out, and on top of that, as a band we are really pretty anti-social to begin with."
