Crazy, crazy Belleville
Who knew that a town of only 40,000 people would like to party so much. Rumored to have the most bars per capita in the country, they showed us a good time. The night started with us watching Charlie's Angels 2 in the hotel room. Then we went to the new 313 which looks awesome! There were a shit-ton of people there wearing bunny ears who had been bar crawling since noon. They were pretty wasted and were paying the sound man Kevin to play Prince and Meatloaf, so I don't know if they were ready for a live band to come in and blow their balls off, but some of them were pretty cool. The opening guitarist, Aaron, did some cool sampling stuff and had a good voice. The bartenders were really cool and a bunch of them came back to our hotel to party afterwards. I can't believe nobody called the police. Everyone was so excited after the show it was way loud. One of them drew a picture of her lesbian mother engaged in some unmentionable acts. I'm still trying to figure that one out. See our tour journal for diagram :) Another girl invited us to eat at the Pie Pantry the next day where our new friend Bart bought us lunch. I think we hit a worm hole on the way back because it took us like 6.5 hours to get there and 5.5 to get back. Maybe something with the jet stream, I don't know :) Yup, I got that one at the school of Out of My Ass.
