We've done it! We've toured the entire country over the course of three or four weekends. Unheard of! We did miss a few places, it's true, the harder-to-reach spots, but oh what an effort it has been.
There's bound to be more excitement soon. We might record some stuff in Tim's basement and try to sell it on ebay. Nothing's coming up now, though, so I'm gonna start taking naps every day and spending too much time in the sun.
Did I mention that we're playing in Boston tonight? At TT th'Bears? And in NYC tomorrow night, at the Knitting Factory? I can't remember. Anyway, a reminder. All should attend.
Alright, some real news. I thought that after these Boston/NYC shows we'd have nothing to do for ages - but I have been wrong before, and thank goodness, I am wrong yet again!
We're playing three West Coast shows with Mission of Burma: Seattle on Wednesday July 24th, San Francisco on the 26th, LA on the 27th. Fuck a hunnerd ducks! Show me 'em, I'll fuck 'em all! This is truly a duck-fucking event.
There's more about this, I think, on the upcoming shows page.
Hey! We're playing in Minneapolis tomorrow! Two shows at 7th Street, one in the afternoon for the kids, one in the evening for the grownups. You should all come. I don't care where you live, you should show up. Everyone. I'm not just talking people who live within, say, 300 miles. I'm talking everyone. Please don't disappoint me.
The "listening party" was fun, just friends & good food & drinks, & we listened to the record too many times, Andy put on Fred Lane, and I danced out the door. Summer is here, maybe it's here for good; and here you can stay out late, the nights and early mornings are warm and comfortable, you can parade naked through the streets and everyone says hello. I'm excited for the shows next weekend - lots of friends in from out of town, a brief road trip, adventure! Carousing! I don't yet know of anything better. But life is long.
I forgot to say: our new record is out. If you're inspired, you should buy it and listen to it many many times, until you're absolutely certain.
