Good Morning Tokyo

Posted by rpb

It's just about 9:45 Friday morning and we're all getting past our first night of sleep. Yesterday's travel was exhausting, but we're all feeling great and can't wait to explore. In fact, Hugh and I took a little walk around the neighborhood of the hotel this morning and only got lost once!

Spirits were high last night as we went out for dinner and drinks with the fellas from Firestarter and Rockbottom. These guys know how to have a good time!

Sound check is at 5pm this afternoon, show time is 9 and the band is readier than ready.

Internet access in the hotel is limited to a common computer so I'm not sure that I'll be able to get photos and video to the web site as easily as I had hoped. Still, we'll keep on writing and keeping everyone up to date.

Hey Richard and Hugh - great to hear from you! Glad to hear the flight and arrival all went smoothly, and that you had a good time last night with the guys from Firestarter and Rockbottom. Energy is high about this, even here - I heard that Marko played a set dedicated to the tour today on his afternoon WCNI show. Everywhere I go people ask me about the band!! Everyone is excited!! Now is the time to rock!!

Glad to see a post from you finally. I was beginning to feel like NASA waiting for a Mars rover to phone home.

Too bad you don't have Internet access in your hotel room. At least you have some access. Any cybercafes in the area?

Is the gig countdown timer correct? I've adjusted it for the 9pm start but I'm not sure if I have the GMT offset correct.
