May 20, Santiago, Chile
Arrived today, after what could be called a pretty serious day of travel - we left our San Salvador hotel at 9:30am yesterday, flew to Miami, changed terminals and connected with
our overnight flight to Chile - arrived at our Santiago hotel at 9:15... not quite 24 hours travelling!
Anyway, great to be back in Chile for a Stick Men show. We always feel great about connecting with the audience here.
At the venue... I see the poster features my name more than the band...
and, outside the club, some interesting merchandise being sold...
hmmm... These seem to feature me much more than they should...
Don't remember seeing my face on a coffee cup before. Ah well.
We started the show off with Markus playing solo, as we'd been doing on our recent Europe tour
And I was glad to get a few pictures of the audience - they were great!
Aftershow we must have met just about everyone there... quite a lively scene at the cd signing table.
It was really a wonderful night for us. Our thanks to Santiago Fusion, the promotion group that made it happen.
As for the merch salesmen outside, they must have had a good night because I bought two coffee mugs myself!
(No, there was no discount.)
If I can get one home in one piece, it'll be perfect for holding Funk Fingers!
(Or, I could try filling it with espresso... that'd be dangerous!)
Next we fly to Mendoza, Argentina, where we'll have a show at the Nave Cultural, on Friday night.
