After arriving in Bellingham I was cabbed to my lovely king-sized hotel room for the night. I ordered a pizza and drank pepsi while watching Full House. (Jesse should dump that bitch girlfriend of his).
The next morning I flew to Oakland where I was picked up by the lovely Shannon Shaw, (singer and bass player for Shannon and The Clams). Oakland can be really scary but is also really pretty and relaxing. We walked around a giant cemetery where Black Dahlia and some other celebs are buried, ate burgers at Giant Burger and watched The Fly.
The next few days included a BBQ with Oakland homes, thrift shopping for Clams costumes, and Mai Tai's at the Tonga Room (a boat styled, Tiki bar in San Francisco where they make it rain from the ceiling). I also had my first practice with the Clams which went really well.
Tomorrow is my last day in Oakland before we head out on tour.
