Part One: Exploring Athens

October 14 – November 5, 2015

I went to Europe this Fall to tour with my friend Max Sugar Blanck and help promote his EP, French Cookin in the Delta, which we recorded together in Memphis in January. You can listen to some of the songs here: http://maxsugarblanck.bandcamp.com/

We were going to tour Germany for a few dates but some dates fell through and it didn’t make sense for Max. I embraced the days off and went to Athens in seek of adventure in a land of the Gods.

The Erechtheion at the Acropolis

Shout out to this guy. A street performer originally from Ghana who was jamming beneath the shadows of the Acropolis. I sat and listened for a while, bought his CD, gave him a sticker, and some change for a beer. That was yesterday. Today I found myself walking down the same street and what do you know? There he is jamming his happy self and he had put the sticker on his guitar. One Love my brother. Respect.
