If Crossfade were a superstar DJ, we wouldn't perform a single show without four cases of cherry vanilla cola, two bottles of Black Label whisky, a picture of our mom, a pink umbrella, and a drumming monkey.

More acts need to do this: Start or end their tours in South Florida. Way too often, when acts are touring the U.S. they'll make a stop in Atlanta and call that the southern leg.
