>Tour Bus


Tonight, my blue bead-embroidered bus stopped backstage at the Grateful Dead show to pick up my friend John. We happened to show up just in time to hear Drums🙂

As you can see, there’s really nothing glamorous about being backstage at a rock concert. You can’t see much, the music is loud, and it is usually very dark. John is used to it, though; he’s a stagehand, so this was just another day of work for him. Except today, he brought his dog, Rudy. Yes, the REAL Rudy. Rudy is excited because he loves listening to drums. He keeps looking out the window hoping to catch a glimpse of the show…

Okay, Rudy, we’ll stay for one more song:)
