Michael Stipe of R.E.M. was hanging out at the venue we played at in Athens, GA and I happened to remember we had just bought a cassette tape of their album "Murmur". After mustering the courage to talk to him I got him to sign it and gave him a complimentary t-shirt. Immediately after signing he said "I spelled my name wrong." which was true.
The route to Knoxville was a welcomed break from the interstate and we were able to stop and enjoy some countryside.
Interesting light should never be wasted.
We couldn't pass up an opportunity for a good band portrait.
ever been to Gatlinburg, TN? We hadn't and we were shocked.
*more photos from Brian to come for this post*
The day after our show we stopped by Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA.

It was a hot day to be roaming around Richmond.
