Sean's Tour Diary is Up on EW.com
Mr. Nelson gives a full account of the first stop on the tour, Boston, over at EW.com: Pahk ya cah in Hahvad yahd!

Quote:Speaking of which, you may be wondering: Who is this person writing about himself on this blog? Why should I care about his stupid band? Are they even still together? Who will replace Paula Abdul? All good questions.

Wow, what a fantastic write up. This is just one of those obvious instances where reading a tour diary is interesting, but reading it about the show you went to is just awesome.

And while Sean did look like he would have liked a nap when working the merch table before Jukebox went on, I never thought they seemed or acted tired at all on stage. Which, after reading their schedule, is a truly impressive feat.

Makes me sad that I have never seen Harvey Danger live and never will. Just another reason why it sucks to live in Texas.

Many people are still waiting on one for the Chicago show. I certainly hope it comes first.

Sean's blog Wrote:“So, uh, like… what kind of band are you?”
This is always an uncomfortable question to answer, never more so than when you’re on a crowded shuttle bus between the extended parking lot and the airport. The businessman who asked had been eyeing our guitars and drum cases for the length of the shuttle ride and only worked up the nerve to ask when we were almost to the terminal.
“Well, rock and roll, I guess,” I said. A pretty useful all-purpose answer, given the context.
“A-ha,” he replied. “Like, what kind of… venues?”
“Clubs, small theaters.”
“Anything I would know of?”
“Not likely.” I typically avoid saying our band name unless it’s absolutely necessary. Both because so many people know it, and so many people don’t.
I thought of (and channeled) this as I had the following encounter on Saturday afternoon:

Cyn and I went to lunch together just before the final shows, at this little sandwich shop in the fish market downtown. The girl who made our sandwiches was around our age, dressed like a hip kid on a hot day, and sported clever literature-inspired tattoos. She asked what we were doing in Seattle.
"Oh, we're going to a concert tonight."
"Really? Who?"
"Harvey Danger. Their last shows ever are tonight."
"Oh. Harvey Danger... what kind of music is that?"
"Rock." I paused, then amended, "Indie rock."
"Cool. Do they do any songs I might know?"
I hesitated, considering her demographic and hometown, and decided that on the last day of the band's existence, it wasn't worth it. "Probably not."
She walked away to fetch condiments as I muttered to Cyn, "I am not singing paranoia-paranoia to her."

The shuttle to Alsip wasn't entirely full of them...

Quote:When we arrived there in a shuttle with a clutch of fellow weary flight missers, it didn’t take long before a woman in a Jesus visor asked the inevitable question. What kind of band are we? To find out, I said she’d have to come see our impromptu show in the lobby at 2 a.m.
With a few phone calls, I could have assembled a more appreciative crowd.
