September 23, 2011 - Council Bluffs, IA - Sick Puppies joined the line up for todays show. It was my first time seeing them live. Tons of energy out of them. At the end of the show, John Oaks the promoter said it's time to go count the shoes. I'm wondering what the hell he's talking about so I went with him. We get to the empty pit and there are about forty shoes lying around. He said every time I do a show here there's always shoes from the crowd surfers. The crowd was crazy and some of them are now missing a shoe. As our bus was pulling out to leave this drunk girl open the door and jumped aboard. She asked our driver Colman to drop her off at the other parking lot. Colman politely responds, "Does this look like a fucking taxi?" She got off the bus and we are now headed to Sandstone Amphitheater in Kansas City for the next adventure.
