Show Notes: South Bay Pub & Eatery Olympia 4/19/2014 (the “friends in green places” thing)
first, a little note about the flier – it was a melding of a pic from our previous tour and a great mountain pic by a very good friend from the middle o’ nowhere, Wyo. (thanks, Antonio).
the South Bay Pub & Eatery was a weird, roadside mirage in the otherwise nearly indelible green hue of Olympia. though it wasn’t our first time in town, it was definitely the first time we paid attention to the surroundings. impression of Olympia: “hill hill hill tree. tree. hill. building HILL tree.”
so after several repetitions of this mantra, we drove right the eff past the venue. turned around at the next tree, and pulled into the parking lot. entered the place, shook the hand that shook the hand of PT Barnum and Charlie Chan, and got to setting up. we should say that we showed up scandalously early for this – like so early that Tim, the GUY there, thought we were delivering donuts. we were early because we were meeting a friend, one of…oh….thirteen…in the PacNW at the time, and so we set up and went to coffee and traipsed back to the venue, friend in tow, chatted a bit, and finally went to work.
though we write these a long time after (because…BUSY), we remember these two sets like the bottom of a glass of scotch, neat. the room just kept filling up with people, like…who actually WANTED to be there listening to music. bizarre.
finished up, jawed a little with Tim, promised to be back (which we WILL, ahem…when the 21st century does its magic), and scooted out of there. our friend? well. let’s just say that, since high school, some odd 90 years ago, some people have grown up.
we have just grown weird.
