Nor Cal Homecoming

This past weekend our band .bipolar. had an amazing mini-tour in Northern California. We hit the road Thursday evening around 10pm and drove 10 hours to Sacramento. Our friend Vincent from Mozzchopz Photography joined us and captured the trip with some amazing photos.

Once we got to Sacramento I was instantly home sick. The weather was beautiful so we headed downtown close to where Brian and I had rented our first apartment together. Some of the stores and restaurants may have changed names but overall the vibe and feel of it is the same as it was five years ago when we left. Walking around those streets just flooded us with so many awesome memories that seem like a lifetime ago.

Our friend let us crash on his floor for a while before we could check into our hotel which was totally needed after so long on the road.
The club we played at was Harlow's an awesome venue right in the heart of downtown Sacramento. We never had an opportunity to play there before and were super excited to finally get to do so. They treated us so well and the atmosphere was just great.

After arriving at the club for check in, the rest of the night was full of hugs, reminiscing and so many good times with friends we hadn't seen in forever.

We had such a great time. The show itself was wonderful. Our friends packed the house and we got to play 10 years worth of great music for everyone.

The next day we had a bit of time to kill before our next show so we headed to Old Sacramento for some fun.

We headed into the Bay Area to Vallejo and chilled at the hotel until check in time.
This night was full of our Bay friends and we had a great time hanging out with all of them. The bands we shared the stage with were all supportive and we sold a lot of merch which helped our cause. We made some new friends as well as getting friends who had never seen us before to come out.

The whole experience was pretty awesome and I am a little sad to return to reality with work and stuff. We were just amazed with the love and support from everyone who came out. My heart is completely overwhelmed and I can't wait to head back up there in maybe six months.

Here are some of my favorite shots from the shows.
