From the Galm Household…

Tonight’s show was RAD! We got to hang with the Algernon dudes, Paul and Marco from Great Friend of Mine, and Ross and John from Snowing. In fact, I’m writing this from the Galm household, where John’s parents have generously allowed us to crash (on beds even!). So in the spirit of kindness, touring, and pop(not soda) a huge shout out to The Galms for being awesome human beings. This blog post is officially dedicated to them.

We still haven’t managed to get pictures or video footage from our shows. We actually had a bit of a technical mishap tonight, so you may not have even wanted to see us in 10 minutes of “shiiiiiiiiiiit”. But we still have goodies.

Here’s us post late-night dinering with John and Ross:

And here’s 19 year old John on the front of a local magazine, reping AUDIO RECORDING CLUB. There are pics floating online, but this is the original from the guest bedroom.

LOL.

Also, happy birthday to our Jon. He turns 24 today! We’re taking him to a movie.

YEAH!

I felt pretty good about it.

So first off, thanks to Presea, Ossimer, and Orphans for playing with us last night. All the bands sounded ridunkulous. Also, thanks to Tony, Cassie, and Eli from Stay Young House for all your hospitality / vegan pasta / multitude of cats to play with. We are all very jealous of your humongous low-rent, no-noise-ordinance house, located in an only mildly scary neighborhood.

We are currently on our way to Bethlehem, PA’s Secret Art Space to play with (OMG) Algernon Cadwallader, along with the Joint Chiefs of Math, We Were Skeletons, and Great Friend of Mine. We’re pretty excited for this one- as in ‘spend 10 extra minutes picking out your outfits’ excited. Will Keith continue to stubbornly wear tight jeans in 90 degree weather, or will he finally break down and sport his more practical, yet less fashionable 1997 Umbro soccer shorts? Find out tonight at 7 p.m ET.

…I am now contractually obligated to embed this youtube video of us with Annabel outside a Toledo Big Boy on Thursday night:

Going to Pittsburgh!

YO. Finally we’ve gotten a chance to update this thing! The past couple nights have been pretty awesome. Wednesday we had our kickoff at the Montie House in East Lansing with Cheap Girls, The Give A Hoot, and our pals The Plurals. A good time was had! But we missed Tenement and The Used Kids, who were stuck in Columbus. Shout outs to Mac for loaning us his speakers and my buddy Nate Papi-Wark for helping us set up the show.

Last night we played in Toledo with Annabel, Husky Puppies, and Slingshot Dakota. For reasons we won’t go into, the show ended up running super late and a couple sets were cut short. It was a slightly shady, but otherwise, awesome show featuring Slingshot’s rad as hell Fugazi cover. We also met two lovely animals, Molly and Dodger. I’ll put a picture of our late night Big Boy excursion when it’s up.

Today we’re driving to Pittsburgh and are armed with Vitamin Water and cream soda. See you all there!

Here are a couple videos to tide you over.
