It's late, but daily news is now a 24-hour game
Many of you offered keen insights in response to yesterday’s post about set lists, both in the post’s comments and on our Discord server. If you’re interested in how we choose the songs we play at our shows, please do jump into that conversation — the more of you we hear from, the higher quality will be our data, and the higher quality our data, the better we can compete with Billy Joel. In the next couple of days, I’ll put together a post trying to summarize the most popular positions, and maybe working some sort of official policy. (It seems like we should get into some polling on this subject fairly soon.)
Given our loosey-goosey vow to update this space daily for the next little while, here is another request for feedback: What would you like to see Slow Descent Into Radness take on in the near future? No request is too foolish, and none will get you banned from this club, although we believe the NSA and Interpol are scrupulous SDIR readers, so depending on what you say, you could absolutely end up in prison.
Here are some of my favorite photos of me and Keith from years past, plus one of Keith C. in Nottingham (don’t let the artwork fool you).
Tomorrow’s a day off — we’re on a ferry from Belfast to Cairnryan, and then will motor our way up the winding coast to Glasgow. Should arrive just in time for the evening meal, and then, if our history in that town is any tell, 50 or 60 beers.
Hoping you’re living out your—or at least somebody else’s—dreams,
Absolutely agree on the wish for your weirdest, funniest, hottest takes on travel and tour life. Also, maybe some drawings/doodles? What hobbies do you have to unwind and pass the time while travelling? Very curious what your other creative outlets are.
Agree that mundane observations about the weirdness of tour life are welcome. It's a look into a different world for most of us, I imagine. I'm especially curious about how you see us, the fans. In non-tour times, I enjoy the insights on your songs and of course the comedy. You guys are so generous with us, it's hard to think of what more you could offer.
