Pyramid Lake? I’d like to see.
My lunch. I tried not to eat greasy food. Every other people went to In-N-Out but I had these in the van. I made this rice ball yesterday at the hotel. Risa gave me a scorn.
We loaded out our belongings at Atsuko’s house first and arrived at today’s venue, Bootleg Theater.
See the bottom left! Our photo was used for the venue’s calendar. Fun!
There was a strange circle on the floor. This was took away when the door open.
When we finished sound check, a lady came near and gave us Top Ramen goods.
Nisshin caps were wore by Kei Nishikori’s coach and trainer. Cool! Thank you so much!
It must be busy after show, I took a picture with everyone. Our reliable crew. From L to R, Jake, Kenny.
Band and crew
With Miyoko from Good Charamel Records, everybody
A person at the venue gave us 4 dollars and said that we take pictures at the photo booth and went there.
It took 4 minutes to get ready.
Oh no, I only can see the half of Risa’s face.
I tried it again and soon after I inserted money to the machine, shooting started. We were surprised and set the position immediately. All of our faces were in a picture at the fourth one.
A poster at the dressing room
There were only one beer left in a fridge when we came back to the dressing room from Atsuko’s house. We had many beers in the fridge when we left the room and I was looking forward drinking them after show. We were shocked. Then one person from a front act entered into our dressing room silently and opened the fridge and took the only one beer. Our tour manager put a warning sign of “Private for Shonen Knife” before we left, though.
Thank you for coming! I could have precious time. Mostly 500 people were there.
Only my elbows were bending. lol
I ordered whiskey and soda at the bar after show.
Atsuko, Risa and I had a tiny party at Atsuko’s house at midnight.
I got Spinal Tap card from our fan. Nice.
This roses were from our fan,too. Beautiful.
Thanks to everyone, we could finish Ramen Adventure U.S. tour 2017 successfully. I thank to people who came to our show, cooperated Ramen restaurants, everybody who supported us from all over the world, Robby and Miyoko from Good Charamel Records, our great crew Kenny and Jake and Atsuko and Risa. Thank you so much!
