Salt Lake City

May 30, 2006

Over the course of our drive to--and our brief stay (and play) in--Salt Lake City, we feel qualified to make a few generalizations about the state of Utah:

-It is perfectly acceptable for Alternative-Music radio stations to give away guns to the twentieth caller.

-Though the crowds appear to be quite polite and subdued at the beginning of rock shows, once the music gets pumping, the dancing gets dirty real quick.

-In spite of its state political leaders' views on homosexuality and gay marriage, male citizens have no qualms about hooting and hollering on the subject of Nathaniel's sexiness. Take your shirt off!, they shouted.

It was a great show, and we can't wait to visit again.

Now we are driving home minus Tour Manager Jen (she opted to fly) and plus more gear (the Charlatans are taking most of it to L.A. for us, but it won't arrive till Tuesday, and Dyan's keyboard and Zebastian's guitar must fly with us to the UK on Friday).

Nathaniel carved out this adorable little niche for himself in the back seat:

Before we fly out, I promise to post a synopsis of our entire U.S. tour... stay tuned!
