After an epic journey spanning Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada, with pitstops at the surreal salt flats and sensational sierra nevadas, we made it to sunny San Francisco! Poor Josh and Juliana were sick for most of the drive, but they’ve mostly recovered now. We even had to make a 3 AM stop at the emergency room in the middle of Nevada for Juliana because she accidentally ingested cheese and had a pretty severe allergic reaction. She’s perfectly fine now, though.
Molly and Sairuh explore the salt flats… it’s pretty much another planet.
Last night we had a great show with two awesome bands, Honey Moon Tree and Stitchcraft. We performed a few of our acts, added circus to some of their songs, and were generally atmospheric. It was a high energy, enjoyable night for everyone. The venue we were at, Amnesia, happened to be right across the street from 826 Valencia, which I’ve idolized for years, and was Jacob’s inspiration for his Division III thesis project. We contacted them a few days ago, and this afternoon we’re going to go there and do circus workshops with kids! Tomorrow we’re doing a show in Dolores Park, then it’s off to the great Pacific Northwest.
