January 2012 “Switzerland Tour” Narnia here we come!

January 30, 2012

Hello, my name is Grant and for the next two weeks I’ll be updating the blog for the guys!
So, with that out of the way, let’s begin.

As always, we met at Shaggys place with all of our bags and prepared for the journey to the airport. “Holy Cow Batman” Shaggy is awake!? There’s a first time for anything I suppose.
Soon after we had made it to the airport and took care of the boring stuff, we got to rest, sharing a coffee at the same place we had stopped at two years ago!

After a long rest we finished up and noticed the plane was boarding! How did we miss that!? Arriving at our gate and heading straight out to the plane, we began to see Narnia in our sights!
One hour and 40 minutes later we had arrived in Geneva, feeling very, very glad to be back on the ground, only to remember that we now had a 3 hour train ride, oh joy. However, this train was special, it had an “upstairs”; the excitement of the train swaying ever so slightly to the left and right only lasted for the first 5 minuets of the journey. The rest of the trip consisted of Shaggy composing a song and drawing a pretty picture, like total rock stars, right? FINALLY! We made to to Luzern and met up with our old friend Margo Cummings, the wonderful lady that has helped set up our gig at the Ecole d’Humanité. She was right there, to pick us up from the train station in the infamous “sad-car” to take us to Bill Weir, the one and only. He’s kind enough to let us use his amazing place and let us pillage his food and coffee supply!
Tomorrow, we’ll be playing a gig at Bill’s bar, “Legends”; tune in again to see how it turns out.

Bead, AWAAAAY!!
