I’m home from tour. I took an extra day to just recover before typing up a few things here at the HOUSE OF KHRACK about my experience on the road this time out, but I’ll start out by saying that I really appreciate everyone who came out and supported us on the road this time, and of course a million thanks to adamwarrock, who helped us fill in some dates that fell through for us because of weather and stuff by adding me onto their bills in a few spots and letting us crash in their hotel rooms. He and wecandonothingherebutperish were lifesavers and it was a pleasure to turn our two tours into one weird Venn diagram of shows. Also a million thanks to sixsixsith, my tourmate, who shared driving duties and provided the (thankfully 4WD) wheels that carried us from show to show through the snow.
Every tour teaches you something new as a performer and as your own booking agent, and I learned loads about fighting the weather when you hit the road and about pacing myself while performing for totally different types of crowds as we moved through the frigid North East. From house shows where i made everyone sit on the floor in the dark, to crowded venues where I forced the crowd to do call and response about waffles, to sitting in a hotel room playing Magic: the Gathering against Tribe One & WarRock for 12 hours after our shows were cancelled… I loved every minute of this run.
Ending this set of shows at my home-venue, The Milestone, with all the NOFRIENDS crew in one place was fantastic. Fans and fam from all over came out and it was a truly amazing time. It was an incredible evening and I am still reeling from how awesome it all was.
Thank you guys so much for enabling me to keep doing this ridiculous shit. It means more than you know. I am fortunate that I get to come out and every time someone knows my lyrics and raps along or buys my record or tells me how much a song means to them, it lets me know I’ve made the right decision by continuing to do this. I love you guys, sincerely.
No friends, only family.
PS: New record coming in the next few months. New dates will be going up at http://mikalkhill.com/tour also. Thank you to omg-thathancockguy for snapping the photo above this text! :)
