A fun, yet somewhat bittersweet, show at Lupo’s in downtown Providence. I don’t know why, but every time on these tours, the last couple shows really make me sad. The first shows are so incredible, the middle shows are the slow burn and then the end comes and then I think "oh man, I won’t be doing this again for another 6 months". It sucks.
Had some horrible hotel problems when we got to town, but fortunately Tom Pisano bailed us out (as usual) and let me go and have a peaceful dinner with friends.
A good crowd, less a couple asshole hecklers during Patton’s closing set. Fred Armisen drove up from New York to do a five minute bit that he also did in Philly as the Native American comic whose name I completely can’t remember right now.
Walked along the riverfront late at night with the Ledoux’s and John from Secret Stash looking at the "Water Fire" thing that they have going on….. I couldn’t get a decent photo of it, but it was a lot better looking at it than it would be to describe. Basically, there’s huge pots of cedar burning in the river. I know, I’m not doing it justice, but it was awesome to see. Got to glimpse at the RISD campus and talked to Jesse about how awesome he is as a designer. Anyhoozle……..
So excited, Zach is coming in tonite to do a guest set on this, the final show of the tour in New Haven. Whee!
