Day 1 (Snow Day)

The Static Jacks, Andrew Maury, and I arrived at the studio around 12 PM. But after only a few hours of familiarizing ourselves with the place, snow started pummeling down pretty hard outside, so we decided to head home. And it’s a good thing we did because it was a slippery ride back. Conditions on the road almost doubled our normal drive time. The day wasn’t a total bust, though. We managed to try out a few new snare drums, position mics around the kit, and get a lot of gear up and running. The band also received exciting news, which they’ll be announcing shortly. The rest of the day was spent at Chipotle and watching Joe Barresi videos.
