Page McConnell: From Studio(s) to Stage(s)
PM: It's not the cooling down thing, it's being on the road in some town with a day off. I'd rather be home. Playing is one thing, but if I'm just there for two days in a row, it just killsit's a killer. But I really am looking forward to it. It's going to be a little bit of a grind but I know that and I really feel that it's going to be fun.
AAJ: As I said, I was looking at your itinerary on your website earlier today and I notice the tour leads right up to, but doesn't include, playing at Bonnaroo [Festival in Tennessee in June]. I don't why that leapt out at me except that the dates seemed to be almost contiguous. Is there still a chance you might do something at Bonnaroo?
PM: I wouldn't think so. And that was very observant of you. Just not this time around. It didn't seem to work out. Having said that, if you're not playing Bonnaroo you don't want to be playing anywhere else during that time period.
AAJ: Maybe that's what caught my eye about it!
PM: I don't think I'm going to be at Bonnaroo this year, I was there with Vida Blue, but this is pretty much all just clubs. We're going out again hopefully in the summer and doing more of a western tour and then again in the fall doing something else.
AAJ: Well I hope you end up in Vermont again somewhere, as you began. Or maybe I'll go to one of the other shows just to see how things are evolving as the tour goes on.
PM: You should come to Minneapolis for the last show. I heard that theatre is beautiful
AAJ: I will check my calendar to see what my tour dates show [laughs]!
