Soulful p0p rockers Tim Be Told got one of the most positive reviews we’ve ever seen our critical blogger GT dole out, and as they are currently touring the States, having all kinds of adventures, we thought we’d ask them to tell all about the crazy on tour antics. Learn more about their rise to fame at the University of Virginia, listen to a stream of their album on our site, and check their tourdates so you don’t miss them when they come to your town. Or, stream their album at the bottom of this post!
Greetings. Parker and I (Jim) are trying to remember exactly what day of the week it is, and which time zone we’re in so bear with us. So many things have happened since we hit the road on Wednesday. Our first stop was in Austin. We weren’t sure what the crowd would be like with the city being an entirely new market and all, but were pleasantly surprised to see the venue packed when our set started. After the show, some folks invited us to their place for some steaks – which were incredible (thanks Chris Lu and company)! Next was Houston where we had two stops. We had a feeling that they were going to be great shows since we’d played at both churches before, and our expectations were more than met. The shows were packed to the walls! – Thanks FBCC and HCC!
ON THE ROAD
After Houston, we started the long trek to Los Angeles, with a pit stop in San Antonio for breakfast burritos (courtesy of our road manager Steve’s Uncle Jim).
During our lovely breakfast, Uncle Jim proceeded to inform us of a recent incident that occurred in one of the cities we would be passing through. This incident involved a man en route to Los Angeles, his car, and burning flames, which were not accidental. Needless to say, we stayed pretty alert during the next 7000 hours to California. We took some pictures of the scenery for your viewing pleasure. During this trip, we unknowingly came to a border patrol checkpoint and were momentarily excited at the prospect of our tour becoming international…. But the only border we got to cross was into New Mexico.
In short, 22 hours after leaving San Antonio, we arrived at Andrew’s sister’s place in Irvine and crashed for a few minutes before getting ready for our first show in Los Angeles. Until next time — peace.
