One Road Out of Las Cruces – Wayland Tour Log 2/8/14
After morning radio at 99.5 The Rocket, we checked into the Las Cruces, N.M., hotel at 10 a.m. I called the front desk and explained to the girl that we were a rock band that had nowhere to go until 3 p.m. check-in. She had the housekeeping staff clean our rooms first to get us right in.

One Road Out of West Michigan: Phil’s Wayland Tour Log 2/2/14
Last night was one of those loud, hot and sweaty shows where some people were kicked out before we played for being too drunk.
