tbh, two weeks in boston would make perfect sense with a weekend in philly. because i could see ed in boston on the 19th have a day off with the fam, then go to philly on the 21st to see ben howard playing union transfer, have another day and a half off just wandering round and see ed play philly on the 23rd. and then back to boston for another week of casual chilling with the family. but then isn’t doing the east coast but not new york kinda pointless? i could also start in new york for a short week and see ben on the 19th and ed on the 21st. and then off to boston. but then that’s one less gig and none of them on boston soil which is kinda odd again. or option 3 would be doing a mini ed groupie tour starting in boston on the 19th, then 21st nyc and 23rd philly. but in this case, unless i fly to boston on like the 14th, it doesn’t make too much sense to start off in boston. or i could just do both boston gigs and nothing else, and apologize rather often for getting home way too late/early in the morning when ppl have to get actual work done during the day. or i could stay in a hostel if the shows end too early, or just wander around the city if they don’t and go home with the first train, because theres no effin way i’m driving, my knees would be all shaky if i didn’t drink.
