Green 17: The last hurrah!

In Nashville we stay with two lovely girls. We head downtown to Broadway to see music before the gig which is in a massive warehouse. It was fun. We had video games in the changing rooms. The boys shoot stuff whilst I drink rum.

Next up is New Orleans. Yep! New Orleans! Too excited. We pull into what looks like the coolest town ever…people playing music all over the streets and GOOD music too. Wow! Bourbon street is crazy but wow must not forget we have a gig! The town is ready to party and that’s what we intend to do!

Then the last two days take us to Texas. Now these really do have to be HUGE party nights. Mosh pits, crowd surfing and drinking are essential.

Houston

Not too sure what happened in Dallas. Surprisingly, Dan has a memory of drinking an Irish Car Bomb. The wonderful Dave Hause gave me, dan and my hand luggage a lift to the hotel…against his will apparently.

Lift please

Houston. Last night. All feel a little ropey, but hell – if we don’t take it tonight we’ll regret it! The gig is great as predicted. As I start crowd surfing Rosco dives off the stage and over the barriers. Amazing. I want to do that! Later in Floggings set I ask Dave to sort out a diving board and get my swimming costume and hat on…off I go…woooooaaaahhhh!

Later there’s more drinks had in the bar and on the bus. Let’s make sure we do all this again folks!

A Massive Thank you to Flogging Molly! For having us on the bus, on the stage and on the tour! It has been incredible sharing your crowds with you, opening up for you and drinking with you! Cheers!

    Had a WONDERFUL time meeting and spending time with you all. I have not smiled that much in ages! So glad you got a great dose of our culture, especially the New England and Southern hospitality. Travel well, new friends. Hope to see you down the road very soon.

    Cheers,

    Although I came to see FM, I was in awe watching and listening to you all! In the ‘green room’ behind the stage the boys were bouncing in and out being very friendly. I wish I had the nerve to talk to them. Even at 58, you now have a hard core fan! Lorna, I tried to copy your dance moves at home but only threw my back out! I’ll leave that to you from now on! Bless you all on a fine run and can’t wait until you hit Philly again!

      Glad you enjoyed the show! You should have come and said hi, we’d have given you beer :) Good luck with Lorna’s dance moves, I don’t think any of us are brave enough to try and recreate them! ;)

    Can’t wait to see you all again! Dallas was an amazing show and you gained a couple more fans I know of for sure!

    I saw y’all in Houston, and it was an awesome show! I normally don’t show up for openers but I’m glad I made it out so see y’all play. Come back soon!
