Jason Mraz checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@jasonmraz) on Wednesday (August 19), discussing after show shower facilities and his performance at the Indiana State Fair on Tuesday. The singer songwriter tells readers:
Performing shows night after night, circumnavigating the globe, resting eyes on city sights, spotting famous landmarks, and flirting with gorgeous crowds are just some of the perks that come with the job title: touring artist.
But sometimes I forget my flip-flops for the after-show shower. I wonder how many bands before mine made their mark in that flimsy, soiled shower, leaving remnants of past celebration clogged in the drain as the dishwater fills up around my ankles, flooding a dressing room barricaded with wet towels. We sometimes bath in makeshift showers that resemble portable toilets, forgoing hot water and volunteering to smell of eggs, while contracting athlete’s foot and an HPV, all for the love of music and this raw chance at seeing the world. Health and Safety make touring the art that it is.
