I joined The Motion Sick on the road for their jaunt to Delaware for the Dewey Beach Pop Fest last weekend, everyone else’s vision of the trip is being documented here.
Our epic ride to Delaware (Google maps lies! They said it would be 7 hours, but it was closer to 11, due to traffic) was mostly pleasant, including a few singalongs to 80s classics.
During the show I took some video on a few songs and got some cool pictures, including a pictorial of every one’s pedal boards. Check those out on The Motion Sick Photos page
The hotel, as Travis said was a bit suspicious, but it was pretty cheap, so can’t complain much. Sunday we spent the morning walking the beach and checking out the town, being that it is April, a lot of the fun stuff still wasn’t open for the season (including the waterslides), so after meandering around a bit we hit up Crabby Dicks, had a round of Yeungling, and hit the road for NYC.
I was very excited to have my first celebrity sighting in New York, Steven Van Zandt of E-Street Band, the Underground Garage Radio show, and Sopranos fame. Of course, he heard me when I shouted, “Hey is that Little Stevie?!,” and he looked up and gave an ape-like expression and proceeded to lift his Polka-Dot luggage out of his car and wander up to a building across the street. I mostly recognized him because he was wearing his signature scarf around his head. He had a pretty sweet ride, complete with fuzzy dice and New Jersey plates. We also witnessed him getting a ticket for parking next to a fire hydrant, and we got some pictures of the ticket being placed on the windshield, which goes to show that Little Stevie is not above parking laws.
