sorry. why have we forgotten about this tour journal? it was going so well, people were reading it, we were enjoying it, then we go on a big 3 week tour and all we post is a link to a bernie mac stand up bit. pathetic!
so, we wanted to rejuvinate with an amazing bit of information: the spinto band rode segways yesterday. that's right, just like this chick, we were scooting around feeling like we were in Back to The Future 2.
It all happened at the beautifully-graphic-designed Paleo festival in Nyon Switzerland. There was a french man on a segway, trying to buzz up interest with the Swiss stoner market at a rather large festival. He wouldn't let us ride it at first, when he thought we were just punters, but when we told him we were in a rock band, he scooted back to us and allowed us each to go for a spin.
I was a bit worried climbing onto it, and I must say, it is a new experience. I was dangerously out of control for a good minute and almost ran over a Norwegian looking child. Joe was also out of control, but we all quickly adapted to the weirdness of the segway and tried to steal it... the french man wouldn't allow it though and he threw a spear at us. I think it was just a warning shot to say, "come back with my segway," we obliged and returned it to him.
