Back to Normal?

Just getting back to normal this weekend after being out for a week. It's back to soul crushing day jobs that, at least for myself, we want to walk out on and never come back. I feel as if a little bit of me is ground away every afternoon when I leave. Why do places have to be this way? Not to be a total Debbie Downer. We had such a good time in NOVA, aka Northern Virginia, that we expect to be back very soon. Special thanks goes out to our "bro", his term not mine, Scott Sanders for hanging out and schlepping equipment for us. Bummer man, never got that burrito.

Capital of the Confederacy

Awesome show last night in Richmond. Megan from Fuzzy Logic was a wonderful hostess and showed us around Richmond. Took us to some thrift stores and to play duck pin bowling, where she proceeded to kick our collective asses. More on that bowling experience later. Richmond we will be back very soon we are sure.

Records for the week

Been doing some record shopping while we've been on the road. We went down to Norfolk to Skinnies. A little metal slant, but way cool. Steve was so nice and hooked us up with a sweet place for dinner. Steve if you read this; two thumbs up on Tanner's. So good. We would highly recommend both places if you ever find yourselves in Norfolk. Show in Richmond tomorrow night, so we hope to see all our Richmond friends there. We had such a great time when we were there last, well that was with Haints, but still a great time. Also you can get our 12" and tape at Plan 9, so go buy it if you don't get one from us tomorrow night.

Our Nation's Capital

Show in D.C. was really great. Had a blast at Velvet Lounge and hanging at Smash Records, a killer place for hardcore records, before the show. Megan from Fuzzy Logic came to hangout with us too. Check out her blog and the awesome review of our record. Much thanks goes out to her for the great review and for hanging with us in our Nation's Capital. We both are gonna give Megan a huge hug the next we see her. Hope she will make our show in Richmond on Saturday. Drinks are on us if she does.

No internets for days.

Have not found a Wifi connection until now. We are on some internet withdrawl and barely hanging on. Jesus, how did we live without this shit... We found this weird and kinda cryptic message in a book at a restaurant the other morning. Something along the lines of "I met my mother in 1958 and had to be convinced she was not my sister", wow, was it a case of teen pregnancy? Or was it the ramblings of a drunken and hopped up glue freak? We guess; the truth will never be known. Also we stayed in this crazy Days Inn when we passed through Bristol. People living out of it and acting really creepy. It was a family of about twenty people. Not kidding. It was a crazy scene. We were loading up the van and almost got caught up in the melee the next morning. We had to pass through them several times. All of them still in their pajamas and getting in little spats on the sidewalk outside of their 4 adjoining rooms.
Right now we are in Williamsburg. Staying with some friends, eating BBQ and hanging out by the pool. Soooooo nice! Stay tuned for some record finds and pics of our show in D.C. tomorrow night.

Yup, Got 'em just in time.

Our new tape just came to us today. Released by our good friend Lee Noble who does all things on No Kings Tapes. For all those that have not been paying attention (and we know who you are) it is from our little in-store at Grady's Record Refuge from our 1st tour-cation last summer. Grady is one awesome guy and if you find yourself in Ventura, CA stop by his record store and buy some records. He also played in the great bands Monoshock and Liquor Ball and now plays in the Bad Trips and International Hello. Mighty fine resume in our book. We will have these cassettes for our trek north to D.C. and back. You can also get 'em from No Kings for $6 postage paid. Just click the link above. We are also looking forward to meeting Megan from Fuzzy Logic. We will be talking about effect pedals and drumming with her, stay tuned for that one. And, well, stay tuned for all updates from the road and such. See you all at the shows or when we get back.

One fell through and another fell into our laps

The Fungi Girls


Creepoid show fell through. We just couldn't get it together quick enough to make it happen, oh well, they will be back through soon enough.
We did, however, have a show fall into out laps. Its with The Fungi Girls, from the Lone Star state, and Bakesale, from Memphis. Should be a great all around show. I guess I should tell you where it will all go down. Monday, July 4th, at Springwater. So, after all your BBQ is gone and you've fired your last screaming bottle rocket get thy-self to Springwater and cool your heated brains and bodies with a cold one. Then heat back up with all us. See you there.
