STEPHEN'S SOLO TOUR BLOG : DAY 2 : Austin to Dallas AKA The Battle of The Brisket

What a magical night in Austin. The Hole In The Wall is one of those few remaining Rock venues that are unashamedly dirty, dark, and even a tiny bit smelly... but all in the coolest way possible! I heard rumours while I was here that it might be closing down soon and that would be a real shame! I played a nice mixture of material in the set - a song from my very first solo EP to Wilderness Machine songs, Eagle Fort Rumble tracks and one from our next album too. I was delighted with how it all went and was received. Austin, I shall be back! Today, it's on to Dallas. My toe is feeling a little better and I'm pretty sure now it's just a sprain - my toe became a little famous last night - so I'm hoping that's on the mend now and I can actually walk around at normal speed... I'm gonna be road-tripping it up to Dallas with Aidan, it should take about 3 hours. We do have to take care of some important business before we leave Austin though - Brisket! I had the nicest Brisket yesterday from a BBQ place in town. I was told I would love it and I was not let down... we are going back for seconds today! So, the adventure goes on and I'm off on the road again. I felt like I knocked a bit of the rust off last night and really only got into my stride 100% about 3 or 4 songs in so I'm raring to go for the Opening Bell tonight! Wonder if they have Brisket in Dallas?...

    Love it. But I can get those beer margaritas at Don Pablos and I’m half an hour from DC. Also we’re getting an Alamo Drafthouse up here too! Thank you, Texas. Thank you so much. texascharterbus

    I'm afraid that Stephen is going to find out that The Buckhead Theater is actually Chastain with a roof. :( angel4soul
