Tour Diary: On The Road With Thomas Pridgen

After playing some songs I noticed how great the sound was. The crowd was super pumped. People were singing lyrics back. It was great.

We played our 11-song show without a hitch and overall it was a badass night. I had fun and even got to go to bar next door and have a drink.

Chicago Bulls!

We got to Hailey’s and we began to load in. After walking in the venue we all felt a good vibe. We knew this was goin’ to be a good one.

After goin' to eat at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop and grabbing ice cream, doors were about to open ... The fans in Dallas were amazing! They brought us gifts, mostly dangerous ones. I loved it. Fireworks always make me happy ...

When doors opened we sold a ton of merch — more than ever — especially before the show. After chilling for a while it was our turn. We played a nine-song set and the crowd was completely awesome. I really felt like this was the best show we played on this tour. Chris Matthews was on bass and I think this was one of his best shows with us. He killed it.

After we played, like, four or five songs, the crowd kept yelling “encore!” Viv was cracking jokes about how we weren’t even finished yet. I had a blast. We ended the show and headed to the merch table where we sold out of all the shirts we had. Some friends were having an after-party so after loading out and settling up we went to party. After chilling for about two hours we ended the night.

I loved Denton and I can’t wait to come back here and do it again.
