Ed. Note: This past weekend, Houston alternative/screamo rockers The Last Place You Look opened for Unwritten Law in Lubbock, Odessa, and Austin, and invited Rocks Off's Matthew Keever along. Here is Part 1.
Rocks Off didn't expect much while on tour.
We were prepared to sleep in a van; to go the entire weekend without a shower; to pee, defecate and eat at gas stations when we had time. But it didn't work out quite like that. In fact, we ended up more pampered on the road than we are in our own homes.
Friday night was spent with a high school friend and bandmate of drummer Mikey Garcia's. He took us into his home after hanging out with us at the show (and at the after party), and his wife even cooked us all breakfast in the morning.
We couldn't have asked for anything more... even though vocalist and songwriter Justin Nava ate all the biscuits, leaving none for us.
