Howdy all this is Philip. We're currently driving from Zurich to Vienna somewhere in Germany. When we are in Germany we get free WIFI which is pretty great for these long van rides. The traffic here kind of stinks right now and I hope we make it on time to the show in Vienna tonight. We have some close friends in that city and we've been looking forward to this show all tour long. Should be a grand time indeed!
The show last night in Zurich was an adventure for sure. Earlier in the day my right eye started swelling up and I was in an immense amount of pain. I went to the hospital in Innsbruck and the doc told me I had a bacteria infection and that we should probably not play the rest of the shows. Well, obviously we aren't going to do that. Anyways, he gave me a prescription for some eye drops and that helped reduce some of the pain. Because of this we didn't arrive in Zurich until 8:30. We pulled up the front door and immediately loaded at light speed and within 15 minutes we were sweating it up playing our set. The show was sold out and the crowd was amazing! I'm really glad we didn't decide to cancel even though I couldn't see anything including my pedals or the frets on my guitar. Hopefully it gets better this week and we can wrap this tour up properly.
