    We just wrapped up our three-week spring California/Nevada tour and I’m psyched to be home now. To me California is: lots of water, lots of friends.

    The best parts of the tour were going to dog beach in Santa Cruz, and the backstage rider in Sonoma.

    One thing that happened in Sonoma was that Jake cut his thumb on the ceramic knife they had backstage. It was all okay in the end. Crucially, I was still able to enjoy cheese and crackers during the show. This is me helping out.

    We played McCabe’s in Santa Monica, where there was a soft brown couch backstage.

    In Bishop, California, one of the rare places, like Uzbekistan, where we’d never been, we played a fun show for the whole town. For some reason I spent a lot of time supervising soundcheck on this tour.

    A typical day on tour in California was: recharge by the hotel pool….

    …..then handle stage security at the show. Sometimes I appear to be asleep but am really focused just on making it through the set–I mean, enjoying the set!

    The last day of the tour we woke up in Reno just before heading back home and I couldn’t remember where we were, but then we turned on the radio and heard the great piece about us by John Burnett on NPR Weekend Edition and I knew I was right where I was supposed to be.
