Traveling to the US, we wanted to stop in certain major centres. LA was definitely one of those, but unfortunately, we would only have 24 hours there. That’s the tough thing about being on the road, and occasionally having to rush to a show (we had one booked in Mt Shasta the next day).
We headed down to Santa Monica Beach so we could check out the waterfront, and get some sweet jump photos on the beach and under the pier. While we were there, we stumbled upon a film set. LA is obviously home to Hollywood, but they were shooting a pilot for a new TV series called Family Album. We chatted with some of the extras for a bit, and they said that it’s not a bad living for a while. Only time will tell if the pilot gets picked up or not. Watch for it!
We met up with Andy, a friend of a friend from Sudbury, ON, who is living in LA as a web designer. He took us out for a night of vegan food, followed by punk rock bowling, where I actually ended with a score higher than most of the other bowlers. And they’re in a league!
(I’m also wondering if it’s the same Punk Rock bowling league that Fat Mike from NOFX started quite some time ago).
