There really is nothing like the great big American road -- and nothing like a bunch of crazy rockers from San Francisco telling their traveling stories to put it in perspective. After playing Noise Pop and Treasure Island this year, local band Dirty Ghosts, the latest project of fiery guitarist/frontwoman Allyson Baker, is out on a U.S. tour. And thankfully, bassist Erin McDermott is keeping a very funny tour diary on the band's blog. Between their hunting In-N-Outs in Texas, hangover-puking in Iowa, and getting some unintentionally backhanded compliments, the Dirty Ghosts tour diary is a damn good read. Below, we've excerpted five particularly amusing bits from the blog -- all written by McDermott -- along with a few photos. Check out the whole thing here.
