This past weekend we traveled to Hotlanta to visit The Black Lips, mostly because they told us they were playing a show with our YouTube heroes Riff Raff and Eli Porter, which prompted Rachey (after several drinks) to book us tickets on her cell phone (squinty one-eye open style I imagine). We had an action-packed itinerary which included the following: strip club, cheese grits, squirrel hunting, Civil War laser light show, church sermon, a visit to Nick Cave’s favorite restaurant, and a few other awesome Atlanta-specific things. We only did two of the above, but it was still the best weekend ever. See: hanging out with the ATL Twins (although I’m still not sure what they do exactly) and also, cheese grits.
Here’s how it went down, according to our cell phones:
This is where Jared told me to go from the train station.
Fuck a flyer.
Grandma Mimi Swilley is pretty much the baddest b*tch on the planet.
Cole is making this guy into gloves.
French Sara is super down with America.
This is a fondue restaurant that looks like a pirate ship. No bigs.
This is the grave of said fondue restaurant’s dead alligator mascot.
Cole and Bradford Cox djing at an art gallery.
Oh nothing just a purple house with a porch where I will one day live MARK MY WORDS.
Jared wheelin’ and dealin’ in his office, y’all.
This t-shirt is everything.
This t-shirt art is pretttttty cool I guess.
