one of my favorite tour stories ever is about the first time i played Wrocław, Poland with @bleubirdy back in January of 2012. It was freezing cold and this nice guy working for the festival named Martin (pictured left) met us at a coffee shop in the city center to guide us to the club. With @harpoonlarry driving, Martin in shotgun, bird and i crammed in the back, we set off down the road. Martin was giving solid directions, the he said “Turn left … now … GO FAST!” to which @harpoonlarry responded, “WHY?!”, and Martin quickly explained, “this is one way, and we go the WRONG WAY!”
needless to say, Brock floored it, and we went hurtling into head on traffic! almost 5 city blocks going the wrong way, as on coming traffic got closer an closer! at the very last minute, a quick turn down a narrow street had us missing a crash, bounced us into a pedestrian only zone, and in front of the club.
we were all dying laughing, and Martin looked at us and said, “welcome to Poland!”
later that tour, @bleubirdy, @harpoonlarry, and i all got martin’s words, “turn left … now …GO FAST!” tattooed on us in Berlin to commemorate the beautiful insanity of the moment.
here is Martin and i, moments after i showed him the tattoo. he saw it and was beaming, “this”, pointing to my tattoo of his words, “is best story of my life”.
i love my job. (at the road)
