YO, so I've decided to make a post about living life on the road. I'm on tour right now with Reverie, Sahtyre, and super producer/DJ, Chase Moore on the 1s & 2s. I booked this tour and tour manager for the trip across parts of the midwest and east coast. I'll write a different post sometime chronicling the ups and downs of the tour/tour industry. I think it's a crazy life to live on the road and needs to be shared. All pics taken by me. I'm writing this outside of Chicago right now. Unfortunately we're not in Milwaukee right now but we have a needed off day in the Windy City. It's storming tonight but we have an appearance and some irresponsible partying to do.
This is just a recap. But be sure to follow me on IG @itsEssince for live updates.
It kicked off in Springfield, IL. The tour started off without Sahtyre who didn't fly in until the next day but we rocked out and had a good turn out.
But after the next night we picked up Saht and a celebration was in order. I woke up and took this picture before checkout. The show was pretty dope in Waukegan, IL. The venue is called Buenos Bar which was attached to a pretty ill restaurant called Tacos Buenos. They fed me tortas the night before so we all came back the next day to eat again. I had another torta de lengua and horchata.
I decided to be artsy and capture Sahtyre thinking about life while Chase was sliding into your b!tche's DMs.
The next night was in Niles, IL at Club Miraj. This is Rev with a great supporter named Adrian. Some dude came up and asked her to sign his stomach. (that shirt and more available at www.reverielove.com)
If you've never seen Sahtyre live I suggest you do. Straight up. Dude converted energy into an Awesome performance. One of the best things about touring with experienced artists is seeing how they turn strangers into fans. His and Reverie's crowd control is on point.
And of course Reverie did her thing. It was great seeing a fan come out to a second show. We have a few people coming over 90 minutes to see her tomorrow in Chicago, too.
I had to end it with one of my favorite pics. We hit up a liquor store for some engine fuel and the Polo king, Chase had to teach you had to stunt, G-Unit style.
I've slept about 16 hours since Monday (it's Friday now) and I'm BEAT but the show must go on. Time to turn in for a couple hours and head into town for an impromptu appearance at Black Tooth's bar.
Catch us in your city.
