Our friend Chris Bell came through Urbana last night on his bike. This is notable, since Chris is from Jamestown, New York. He’s been experimenting with alternative modes of transportation. Last summer, he did a canoe tour down the Erie Canal (which CBS Evening News had a fun segment about). And this summer, he’s traveling through the Midwest on bike, playing shows along the way.
We got to hang out with Chris last night–cooked some veggies from our garden and saw him play in the basement of an Urbana house known as the Anthill. Then this morning he left for Chicago (on bike, of course) to conclude the tour before hopping a train back home!
