Rodeo’s on a Plane: Euro-Tits

posted by on March 21 at 13:01 PM

Brent and I spoke. Euro-pay phone to cellular device:

Where was your first show? Please tell me you wore Rodeo attire on the plane again.
Brent: First show was in Goor, Belgium. A posh little spot with a stage, a fancy lighting rig, and about 9 people. Small crowd, but spirited. The outfits? Always. Rodeo attire, always. We took the stage almost exactly 24 hours after waking up the previous morning.

Did people show up in Western outfits?
Yeah, two women arrived in full on Western get-up, dressed identically, and line danced in unison. A few other people wore cowboy outfits. Man, I so appreciate the effort. I walked up to an older gal wearing a cowboy hat and a fringe suede jacket after the set and said, “Hi, there!” She said, “I am a drug addict.”

Has anyone tried to steal your hat yet?
No, but during our first set of the night, a drunk woman took a diver and fell in front of the stage. She totally busted her ass and somehow, managed to keep her beer glass perfect level without spilling a drop. During our break between sets, she yelled, “Hello America!” and showed us her tits. The privilege of being a cowboy, I guess.
