Toby Lightman checked in with Aslyn her first tour video blog while the singer songwriters were on the Diamonds and Rust Tour in North Augusta, South Carolina on Friday (August 14).
Aslyn talked about a bizarre run-in with a fan who asked her to remove her glasses to advise her to get Lasik eye surgery. They also talked about the home they recorded the video from, which they were performing a show at downstairs called Downstairs Live.
“I do have a funny story from Greenville,” Aslyn said. “I had my glasses on that night and this dude came up and asked me to take off my glasses and I took them off. I was like maybe he wanted to try them on because a lot of people like to see what they look like in them. I took them off and immediately as I took them off my eyes, he’s like, ‘Oh, you should get contacts.’ I was like okay. He leaves for a while and goes and tries to molest (Toby). Then he comes back to me and he just stands there and he looked at me as I was having a conversation with someone else and just sort of stood there until I looked at him. He said, ‘I just want you to know I’m sorry if I offended you and I enjoyed the show’… Then he walks out the door and he looks back and says, ‘Oh yeah, get Lasik’.”
The clip at Toby’s MySpace Video channel has since been removed.
