Sam Evian Went to Stone Henge and the Royal Wedding While on Tour
By Sam Evian
Brooklyn musician Sam Evian is about to release his sophomore album, You, Forever in t-minus 7 hours. As a little appetizer to the record, Sam let us go through his camera roll to see all his adventures while on tour in the UK. Good thing there wasn't anything too scandalous on there...
"Here are some snaps from our little UK marathon run. We flew in for the Royal Wedding, and decided to play some shows since we were there. No one knows this, but Austin is actually a world renowned florist, and he got us all on the royal list. All in all, it was a real hoot. Marc Riley's BBC6 show was a highlight. Have you ever been to Tebay Services? It's a godsend. I was the only driver in the van, so that was pretty psychedelic."
Check out the diary below and listen to You, Forever out on Saddle Creek tomorrow.
London soundcheck at the Islington. Sound guy realllly loves that Red Hot Chili peps kick drum... so we had to work it out.

We had a late night in Glasgow. Barrie took us out dancing. Here i am, finally making peace with the roundabout.
We arrived in Brighton after a red eye from New York. I watched 3 shit movies and didn't sleep. So here I am catching some z's pre show.
Those lumps are burial mounds.
