Show Day in Hershey, PA

Just as the show was about to start tonight, the skies opened up and pissed down rain for about an hour. It was a pretty ugly storm, with a bit of lightning. The opening band was cancelled because to put them on after the rain stopped would have put the whole show too far behind schedule. Pete Yorn was able to take the stage at little after 8 and he played a shorter set than usual in order for the band to get onstage on time (sort of).

We've got a quick little 2-hour drive to Philadelphia tonight, where we'll get straight into our rooms around 3:30 or 4:00am. I sat up with some of the other folks for the drive and had my first beers of the tour. By the time we pulled up to the hotel, I think that only Russell (one of the carpenters) and myself were still awake…
