There is something poetic and idealistic about hitting the road and playing shows with your friends and band mates. Punk rock perhaps more than most genres lends itself to a unique aspect of touring. At the very heart there is a grass roots DIY ethos. There are networks of like-minded bands and individuals throughout the world and touring only strengthens that community. And while touring has its share of mishaps, broken vans, crummy venues and shady promoters one could argue that these trials only add to the mystique of being on the road or at very least gives way to some great songs about these moments. While most of us are still unable to catch a band, play a show, or hit the open road, there is a light at the end of this dark highway and we are closer to seeing our friends again. Which brings us to episode 67. Nate and Mike sit down to discuss some of those songs written about being a band and hitting the road. Take a listen and then get us your lists.
