This crazy story from the road was written by the indie rock band, Sick of Sarah. You can check out the band’s story, after the break.
Since Sick of Sarah has been a working band for a full decade now, needless to say, we have some crazy stories. Ranging from driving overnight and basically jumping from the van to the stage, to getting stuck in a whiteout blizzard in Canada.
We like to broadcast our shenanigans on our YouTube channel. So many of them have been captured there. Since most of our time is spent en route, we have a lot of downtime and once you reach hour 10 in the van you tend to get a little loopy. I start making up characters to not only entertain myself but any of my mates who are awake. I think I’m up to about 7 or 8 now. Coming up with elaborate stories for each. One of my favorites is Jeffy. He loves peepsa (pizza) and animal planet.
There was this one time Katie was really bored and we passed this school bus full of some strapping young lads and one of them asked for her number and she gave it to him. So they were texting back and forth. It was very entertaining.
There was another time we were playing in Sioux Falls SD and we met a very lively character named Bob Wire. Kinda like barbed wire only Bob, who apparently died a few times according to the locals. He was very nice and said fuck a lot.
On another occasion, we were playing in LA at The Roxy. At the time, we covered “in your room” by The Bangles and A certain Bangle got on stage and sang it with us. (on youtube)
The list goes on and on. Just subscribe to our YouTube channel for hours and hours of Sick of Sarah (almost) live entertainment.
