In The Field : Jared Mahone : Sept 18 ’13

Come December Banner

September 18, 2013

All day yesterday I had a day off. I hate days off on tour because every night is a night I could be playing (theoretically). So, instead of playing music, connecting with people, and making money, I’m spending money all day and I’m completely alone. I often have a plan of holing up in a hotel and writing songs but the normal hotel is pretty uninspiring. Not so on this occasion. On days off, I try and keep expenses low, but I’m pretty sure I crossed the line with this particular overnight accommodation. Desperate to save a buck and keep the adventure from becoming stagnant, I found myself in THE SKETCHIEST hotel I have every been in. I felt like Tom Hanks in the movie Big when he stays in NYC for the first time as a grown up. Of course, I was on a backroad in Jersey a couple miles from the shore. The bathmats were literally paper placemats and I’m pretty sure the shower water was filtered through a pack of cigarettes. Needless to say, I slept in my clothes.
