The last show was in a venue called Mozarts in Swansea. It was a house that was made into a venue, it looked incredible and the bar staff gave both Bands a free pint when we were loading in, always a plus. The show for me, was my favorite of the entire tour, all our new friends came out along with a whole other bunch of people packed into this tiny venue, Pipedream opened the show and impressed me so much, FFO: Jawbreaker. We ended up being pretty drunk by the time we played, I couldn’t stop smiling for the whole set. Forrest set in particular completely blew me away, they were so tight. The show was a perfect way to cap off one of the best experiences I’ve ever had as a person and as a band. Afterwards we went to a party with a bunch of people in Neath, South Wales at Jordon’s girlfriends house. She’s got a jacuzzi in the back yard, a few of us jumped in. We were up super early this morning to drive to the ferry port, leaving the lads was pretty hard, I think Kate actually cried. I knew we’d get on with Forrest but I didn’t think we’d literally become best friends with them.
