FOCUS/VIRUS Tour Days 4/5
Day 4: Durham, NC
This was our 1st time playing in North Carolina and it was a blast. We had the great opportunity to be a part of the last show for MEN’s 6 week tour. The crowd was great and the promoters were also very nice.
After our set many kids came up to us to plead for us to come back to NC ASAP. And we just might! Thank you Durham it was awesome.
Day 5: Richmond, VA
This was our 2nd time in Richmond and it was definitely different than out 1st show there over a year ago! The drive from Durham was rainy and grey but the skies soon cleared as we reached the Richmond city limits. This evening we played a venue called Balliceaux. Its a restaurant that turns into a hotspot around 11pm. However we first had to have dinner there. The staff was very generous and offered us an amazing dinner and a few curated cocktails that we loved! Fast forward to our set and we weren’t sure how the crowd was gonna react to our antics. But by the time we ripped into the 2nd song we had won them over.
After the show, Brandon had to trek down the street to retrieve the tour van and to his surprise the van was closed in between fire trucks, road cones and police tape! Turns out a house on the opposite corner to where we parked had caught on fire while we were inside the venue playing our little hears out.
No worries everything of ours was fine we just had to have the nice paramedics move their cones so we could drive the van quickly back to the venue for load out.
Today we’re headed to DC to play a big show @ the Islander. The show is sponsored by homoground and Where the Girls’ Are. So wish us luck! Update should hopefully be posted tomorrow!
