that’s right. everything. and more than once. on the way to CMJ in New York, the lovely Van Small died on us. we got her running again, as always, but she’s getting up there. *sniff*
CMJ was incredible. lots of hangs with the Outlaw Roadshow homies, as well as our full band.
our set was packed, and we had an incredible time playing the tunes with the full band. nothing compares to a Dan McMahon guitar solo.
and before it felt it had even begun, it was time to say goodbye. we roamed the streets of NYC, and ended the festival with an acoustic harmony jam in Adam’s living room. Miles Nielsen’s songs provided the soundtrack.
in the following days, Daniel and I drove across the country to record some new demos. in the process, we drove all the way through Wisconsin, and I remembered how much I love that state. we took pictures and harvested fallen birch bark. it was cold as hell.
it was worth the cold to find, when we arrived, this wonderful smorgasbord of sonic delights.
we tracked the first song for our Cambion project. then a bunch of stuff happened that we can’t talk about, but will eventually.
OH MAN GUESS WHAT GUYS WE ARE GOING TO PORTLAND!
boom. that’s right. check it out. if you live in Portland, or you know anyone who does, they have no excuse not to see us. WE PLAY SEVEN DAYS IN A ROW. so literally, they have to come see us. check our tour page for the specific bands we’ll be playing with each night as well. and we will have a blog dedicated to the fabled city of Portland in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
FINALLY – I just want to let you know that we are putting together a tour for the Midwest this December (4th – 16th) so that all y’all can come out and see the coolness of the beastly 6piece. we’ll keep you posted, but until then, here’s a little one take session of On Berlin.
