2 Nights At Sellersville Theater
We actually arrived here for our day off on the 19th. If you've ever been to Sellersville then we set up camp behind the fire department along the little river thing. The bus driver wanted to park on the hill next to the venue. For 3 days? A hill? While sleeping in a bus? I peaked in on The Proclaimers sound check who were playing that night. Dave and I went on a really nice 2 mile walk around the park. The walk through was fine but the walk back was another story. I ended up taking the wrong way at the fork in the road and ended up going through bushes with thorns. I tried not say anything because my boss told me to wear pants. I wore shorts.
After the long walk we decided to take another walk down to this diner. There was pizza. But we decided on the diner.
Yes, That's A Headstone You See And Yes And Those Records Represent The Band I Work For. This Stoneworks Place Was Located Across The Street From The Venue.
Which, to tell you the truth I don't like diners. They always end up being pretty yucky. Dave got pasta and I said we should have went to the pizza place if that's what you were getting. It upset him and then he didn't wanna get it. It was filled with young waitress girls and I figured it was any middle aged mans happy haven. Paul Simon's Kodachrome came on and I yelled I love this song turn it up! Dave was saying shhhh and I was like no! He was all don't worry everyone she hasn't had her medication today.
On the walk back we almost ate shit thanks to a rubber bump in the parking lot of the fire department. Dave grabbed onto me and I said was that you making sure that if you went down I went down as well? Or were you catching me which ended up saving your balance?
The next day was really hot.
The band broke out the lawn chairs and I put on my bathing suit and laid out in the sun. My boss got fried to a crisp. It was funny. Not really. Being on stage for 2 hours with a sun burn is no laughing matter. I got some chocolate cake from the venue. Go figure. At the time the story on the news was when that little boy with cancer and his mom fled so he didn't have to get kimo treatments. These young gals working at the venue had a thing or two to say about it. I'm actually atheist and I said to them.. didn't they have something to say about his religion? They were like we don't care! That's your child! Would you rather have him dead or alive? Which I'm totally on their side but it was crazy on how fast they snapped.
I walked back to the bus to eat lunch and all the geese were out with their babies.
I Ate Bread Pudding At That Restaurant On The Right.
I decided to throw them some bread. The one that's standing pretty in the pictures ended up following me around everywhere. Even after I was done with lunch he tried to follow me back in the bus. The rest were just aggressive and tried to eat the food out of mouth. If I'd make a sudden move they'd quickly chicken out. Somehow this man seemed to let his dog go and it ran up to me. He gave me the oh miss I'm so sorry line. This isn't 101 Dalmations you know! ;)
I met this woman who was head over heels about the band and I told her about joining the street team for the Allentown show in July. After her excitement went away a bit I asked her if she was coming to the show tomorrow and she said that she wasn't sure. I told her that it was sold out but if she was interested in coming I could put her down on the guest list.
She was shocked. Then she got the next shock. Dave walked out. Her eyes lit up as he came to chat with everyone and ask how I was doing.
I made a few new friends at the venue. I told some woman about the walk around the park. She called it something. Can't remember. She was bit on the hippy side. Met a street teamer named Dusty. Some old guy volunteer for the venue told me about how exciting his job is. The stone works place across the street have Beat records in their window. A head stone.. and a Beat record. Who would have thought?!
