Let's see... where did we leave off?
Caught our fellow westsider Mitchell's band, Stuart's Giant, playing at the Skinny Pancake.
We're talking some Berklee-educated, far out musicians. These guys jammed out for a couple of hours, and gave us a preview of what was to come in Boston. Keyboard player couldn't play, but these three characters laid down the groove and made for a super fun show.
Todd took us out on a school night and we saw some Burlington night life -- great time. Three Needs and Ake's Place where awesome.
Burlington is apparently the birthplace of Phish, and the town that Bernie Sanders was mayor of, or something. (I'm not gonna check these facts right now because I'm just tired.)
We made some friends and really enjoyed our time in The 'Burl. It's basically a beautiful beach town on Lake Champlain with the Adirondack mountains off in the distance. Lotsa good beer, sunshine and cool beaches, as exhibited on the Instagram.
It was similar to Bellingham in a lot of ways. Burlingham -- College town, similar size, similar vibe. Super fun.
Then we hit the road up to Boston to stay at Mitch's place.
Boston is old.
Ali (Luc's sister) flew out to meet us for the week.
The British are coming.
Mitch and the gang are full time musicians, gigging and teaching and running their own band.
They knocked out a rad recording and we filmed the session and made a video for them. Coming soon.
"We got the tools and the means."
Something we keep seeing: hiring signs. Everywhere we go places are hiring.
Move somewhere, get a job, make some friends, see another place.
NEXT: Portland, Maine
Actually I finish this up there. Each week gains a day, considering my plan was to do these updates on Wednesdays. Staying consistent-ish though!
