The title of this particular blog is partially a lie because i'm writing this on day 2. nevertheless, i will commence. day 1 was actually pretty uneventful. a camera crew met all of us at dragan's house in the morning and conducted a few awkward interviews. we then headed over to the granada theater where we conducted a few more awkward interviews and hung out for a while.
sorry if this blog is pretty boring. i'm trying to write as dragan is tackling bear right next to me. and bryce is shouting for us to look at a menu, so sorry for the lack of brilliantly written literature.
we got on our plane that ended up being delayed by over 4 hours, which was no problem because we were so excited. when we got to new york we piled into 2 suv's and went over to the famous electric lady studio's, where jimi hendrix, led zeppelin, the stones and a pile of other classic bands have recorded. in fact, right now ryan adams is just down the hall, and interpol are upstairs. we met our producer mark plati, who has worked with the cure and bowie among others. he just said "i'm going to bring my mic's out there, put on some pants, and life's going to be f***ing glorious!" haha. he's a really cool guy and we're lucky to get to work with him.
after our brief tour of the studio we went back to the hotel, which is directly smack in the center of times square. from our room, i can look down and see the stage where we will be performing. it's amazing.
so far the trip has been a real blast, and i'll keep the updates coming!
