“Some folks say that is overkill however after I go on tour I prefer to convey garments.  Pants, shirts, underwear, possibly a light-weight jacket. That form of factor. I discover it’s an excellent factor to have, particularly when crossing borders and getting espresso.”


No Set off is a part of the 1% of all touring punk bands in that we even have some cash. Not from being in No Set off, that may be insane, however from ya know, jobs and shit.  We have to convey our personal cash as a result of we don’t make any as a band. Don’t rob us although, we solely use crypto and we journey with improvised weapons.”


“My go-to “luxurious” merchandise that I convey on each tour are my wool-lined LL Bean slippers.  Yeah, those you’d put on operating downstairs to open up presents on Christmas morning.  These variety.  However man, placing these unhealthy boys on within the squat or on the lodge or within the van makes me really feel like I’m proper again at dwelling and not a misplaced, outdated man in search of which means within the interest he began doing constantly since 1999.”

“The 2 medication we are able to’t go away dwelling with none extra are weed and acid. Are you able to sneak them into any nation on the planet?  You betcha. How do we all know?  Can’t actually say.”

Little Coin Purse

“All these European nations like to make $1 and $2 cash of their cute little currencies. These motherfuckers add up! They ain’t quarters! Bringing a type of little plastic/rubber coin purse thingies to carry all of your GELD and QUID actually turns out to be useful.”

A Drummer

“I can not stress this sufficient however: Convey. Your. Drummer. It will get actually complicated attempting to play your whole songs with out drums, not to say the stage seems type of empty and unhappy with simply guitars up there. Who’re we, the Eagles? I do know you most likely need to go away him/her at dwelling however belief us…they’re vital. Convey your drummer.”

Tums/Gold Bond

“Oh child, the 2 most vital issues to pop into your touring backpack are Tums and Gold Bond. All of these 2am döner kababs and 8am vegan McDonalds sausages are gonna meet up with your weak-ass abdomen in no time. Higher have a bottle of Tums on ya to set all of it straight. And much more vital is Gold Bond, or Dick Mud as no one calls it. All of that van-sitting and show-playing will get your crotch and asshole in a bind faster than you may say “Holy shit, I’m so glad I’m not in America proper now.” Put a bit within the palm of your hand and attain below your legs and do a number of pat-pat-pats in an upward movement. Disaster averted.”

Gaff Tape

“Gaff tape is touring duct tape. Gaff works simply in addition to duct tape, nevertheless it isn’t as sticky and doesn’t go away a path of white shit on every little thing you place it on.  We have now like 4 rolls on us always. From taping set lists to fixing mic cords to masking your bassist’s total face, you may’t have sufficient gaff!”

A Good Angle

“Final however not least, a very powerful factor to convey on tour is an efficient perspective. You might be on fucking tour, for Christ sake. It’s the DREAM! Repress your whole at-home despair and suicidal ideas and have an excellent time, dude. Punk is mainly lifeless and the world is gonna finish in like 5 years, possibly approach before that, so stay it up! Verify your perspective on the gate at Logan, eat a potent edible, and land on the opposite facet of the world with a stress-free mindset. Get into the zooone, bro!”
