Where or where to begin??
Seriously, I have no idea where to begin. So I guess I'll just list band news and get to other stuff after that. We have shows n' shows n' more shows! Here's the list of events and some flyers.
This is to take place in a basement therefore making it a basement show therefore making it most excellent. BoomBoom Kid (Alls the way from Argentina!), Elephant Rifle (experimental hardcore from Reno, NV), Our Lady (folk punx from Illinois), XIX (Bakersfield, CA punx), Tyrannosaurus Zebra (Visalia, CA folk punx), and Maximo Garcia (local acoustics) will also be in attendance. I'm hoping for a lovely evening. Show starts at 7 p.m.
This time around we'll be playing with Carol Bui (guitar and drums with "middle eastern flair" outta Washington), Fatty Cakes (described as "weird girl fun times"), Passion Bucket, our homeboy Restaurnaut" (ukulele n'stuff) and possibly more! Again, show starts at 7. This ought to be a good one and I'm really looking forward to the other bands.
This is the one mentioned in the previous post. We'll be playing with Werebear in Visalia at Velouria Records. We're really happy to be playing with them as they are really nice people and it's been lovely getting to know them here and there. I hope there is somewhat of a crowd. This one, I fear, may be a smaller turn out. I hope Visalia shows up because I don't really know anyone who's going to drive down to see us. Which reminds me, I need to make better friends around here. Or friends who have similar interests and are somewhat supportive I should say. Anyway, it's gonna be fun and I hope people show up to join in on said fun.
And last, but not least!
We'll be playing another show (there is not a yet a flyer for this one) on the 29th with
Street Eaters, Landlord, Tyrannosaurus Zebra, and Maximo Garcia (again). This one I am mega stoked for. It's gonna be a doozy and I can't wait!
We have been so lucky to have played with such lovely people our first two shows, and I can only hope that our luck continues well into the future. Feeling pretty good about life right now.
And just as I type that, I remember that we have to start looking for an apartment soon. I cannot even begin to express how much I loath the moving process. To know that I'm going to have to be doing it all over again in the next few weeks makes me sick to my stomach. I'll try to cheer myself up by thinking about all the cool happenings from the band every time all the other icky stuff in my life starts to creep into consciousness. Being a responsible adult can sometimes be a drag. Sometimes. Anyway, other cool stuff has happened the past few weeks. Like, we went to see Matt and Kim for free at a suicide prevention festival. It was pretty awesome. Alright, that is all for now. I leave you now with a picture of my cat lounging around in the sun. We thought he was dead, but he was just sleeping. He is so spoiled.
