day eleven...

one of our biggest crowds yet at around 1000, Niwot, CO proved to be an awesome penultimate gig... oops, I just used a big word for no reason, didn't I? Ok, I went ahead and made it clickable. Anyway, I've been asking folks just before the last song to come by my table, tell me their stories, you know? Wow... it's been really awesome to hear people's hearts after these shows.

On a complete different note, I'm looking forward to an interesting last show--apparently, tour tradition includes some during-set pranking on the last show. Now, Aaron's band doesn't seem interested as this was such a short little tour, but Building and the crew don't seem so bothered by the brevity. Apparently, tour pranks past have included baby powder all over the snare drum (you can imagine what happens the first time the drummer hits it), taping down the kick drum beater, detuning guitar strings, even silly string attacks and other artists dancing on the stage--uninvited, of course--in a Spiderman costume. My set seems a bit serious for these types of pranks, but we'll see... I'll certainly keep you posted if someone thinks of something.

At any rate, we're heading to Wichita, closer and closer to home. I'll miss the daily blogging, but I'll likely return to a couple times per week once I'm home. Keep in touch for one more tour post, tomorrow night...

Many blessings...

So I had to clicky the linky. How'd you even find that word? You're too funny!
