Please unwrap that CD and give the neighborhood some hell.

Tear down, close your tab, pack the van, pound water, eat a late night breakfast, unload the van, try to sleep, merch inventory, misc. accounting, update the contact list, follow peeps on Instagram & Twitter, and, finally, a thank you blog post… it’s a post-show ritual of a weekend warrior.

Combined with the multi-month, pre-show ritual of booking, writing/sending press releases, hanging posters, developing social content, scheduling posts, practicing, loading, setting up, etc., it’s all a damn good reminder that you better enjoy every second of every show that you play.

June IND sure did AND WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR EVERYONE THAT SPENT THEIR TIME AND HARD-EARNED MONEY ON FRIDAY!!

Thank you Carnahan Hall for the space & sippies, Kenny for the sound, The Clutter & iamlion for the rock, Citizens for Civil Rights for signing up folks to vote, Dave for bringing pics, Jimmy for taking live pics, the IND gals for handling the IND store, Stout for handling door, Domenica & Erik for the promo help, and everyone that helped us celebrate the #HillsterHipbilly release.

We really hope everyone had a great time and made it home ok. If you didn’t personally receive a hug or handshake from us at the show, we owe you two next time.

Please unwrap that CD and give the neighborhood some hell.

See you at the next one?

-Chris
