Part Two of Tour Adventures! – Detroit, Pittsburgh, Philly & New York

This is an actual coffee shop chain in Pittsburgh.

After a short stop in Chicago, my lovely traveling companion Erica Unwoman and I headed off to the east coast.  Our first stop was Detroit where we had a fantastic gluten free meal at Inn Season Cafe before heading over to Royal Kuba to play for the fantastic, and well organized, Doc Colony!

Afterwards we headed over to stay with Casey at Theater Bizarre, what a fantastic spot!  From there we headed out to Pittsburgh where my good friend Robert Warren was putting together a show with the amazing Trundle Manor!  It was pretty chilly but we managed to stay warm with a giant wood burning, fire spewing furnace in the garage (where the show was held.)  Should you ever go to Pittsburgh DEFINITELY stop by Trundle Manor.

This thing actually spit flames on occasion. It also kept us warm.

The next day we headed out to Philly to play for Gil Cnann of Dorian’s Parlor.  We played alongside Psyche Corporation and had a lot of fun.  The next day we headed out for NYC with Psyche Corp. for our last show of the tour.  The Goblin Market and Anachronism really did a great job and it was a ton of fun.  I’m actually awful (if you haven’t noticed) at taking pictures so I apologize for the distinct lack of them.  I also DJed a GREAT electro-swing set but best of all, I got to end my set with a little old school goth/industrial.  They held the event at a club that used to be The Bank way back in the day and well, that was kind of awesome to be able to do that.

Afterwards we got some late night diner at Yaffa Cafe with my friend Calico Jack.  The next day Erica and I visited with Sam Rosenthal of Black Tape for a Blue Girl and Projekt Records fame at their actual offices in Fort Green, Brooklyn.  He was a super awesome guy and even has an old analog synthesizer signed by Robert Moog.

After that we went to Manhattan and walked around one of my favorite parts, Tudor City and Turtle Bay.  We got a bite and then attended Sleep No More.  It was one of the greatest pieces of entertainment, theater and general production I’ve ever witnessed.  Afterwards we got some drinks at Gallows Green and even had a “potion” made for us!

A picture shot with the “sepia” filter on my phone because that’s how awesome I am with photography. Also, an interior shot of Gallows Green.

The next morning I got up early, said my goodbyes to Erica (who stayed an extra day before flying back to SF) and drove back to Chicago. It was a great little tour and we had a ton of fun. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen.

Also gas was only 3.09 a gallon outside of Toledo.

Seriously!

      Hi Agata aka The Best Holiday Dresses Collection,
      First off, I’m glad you enjoyed the post so much. I have to admit ignorance to what this “Adult Web Step” you speak of is and I’m not sure how this relates to my article on a tour of the East Coast of the US but I’m always open to new things. Can you elaborate?

      Also, I’m pretty much 100% sure I’m not your cousin as I was just at a family event yesterday and no word of a relative named “Agata” or “The Best Holiday Dresses Collection” was brought up. Though I admit, it would be quite the honor to learn that I’m related to the esteemed Dresses Collection family.
