NOTES FROM THE ROAD
the black cat, washington d.c.
ursula rucker and julie dexter
last night we travelled to washington d.c. for a show
with julie dexter (uk)...a cool show at the black cat.
it was also being filmed for a documentary (more on that later) so we were surrounded by cameras during our entire performance...guys crawling around the stage, to our sides and behind...haha....luckily, our
show was a good one...highlights: This ( this song has evolved musically over the last 2 years to its present heavy version. last night was the one!)
what a woman must do, untitled flow....a good set.
people were really nice...said they loved our music etc...we evidently made our mark last night.
julies show was nice...and back in the van for
4 hours home...an extremely uncomfortable ride in the back seat...no room to stretch...ahaha....in the door at 5am, then to bed. exhausted.
