Two Things:

First, we’re playing a cool MI show coming up. How cool, you ask? Try Will Smith smoking a cigar in the desert after out-air-dueling that alien invader in the single greatest documentary of all-time Independence Day cool, that’s how cool. Big ups to one of the coolest dudes in the Great Lakes State John Hein and all the rad Metal Frat dudes/Dire Wolf guys for letting us be a part of another great time at what has in some ways been our home away from home for the last 5 years. Go Blue. Dave Kloc forever. Flyer’d:

One of the cooler flyers our name has ever been on.

There are a few other cool Third Coast shows coming up in October. One in Kalamazoo, one in Traverse City, and one in the Furniture City (I’m just full of MI nicknames right now), come out and say hello. We’d love it. Flyers and final details to come.

In the meantime, one of our best friends wrote us up in a UK magazine called NME and they even put a picture by it. Cool to get press so far away, but even cooler to get it from a friend. We love you, Lee. Now, listen to the new Trash Talk LP “Eyes & Nines,” it’s unreal. Thanks to Ivano for sending us the picture, and Lee, of course, for the write-up. Here goes:

We look angry but we're really just uncomfortable.

Well, that’s about it. Tigers took 2 out of 3 from the White Sox in Chicago, that’s encouraging. Still, a long shot to think they’ll climb out of the hole they’ve dug. Mike Modano is a Red Wing. I’m into that. Hell, even the Lions looked decent in their first preseason game (granted, they went 4-0 prior to going 0-16 two years ago).  Listening to Titus Andronicus and then Ted Leo and then probably more Ted Leo, can’t complain about that.  

Oh, and Shark Week ruled.

yrs, Jordan

That cool.

    Funny you mention the awesomeness of Independence Day…I took a CPR class yesterday, and the instructor looked EXACTLY like Jeff Goldblum’s wife from the film. I checked IMDb, though, definitely wasn’t her. So bummed.

    Anyway, all of these shows make me wish I lived in Michigan. Please come back to Virginia soon!

    First of all, I will finally make a metal frat show with you guys…I tried to go last year but I showed up a little early and I had an exam the next day so I couldn’t stay…

    Second of all, I am currently studying abroad in Greece and I performed the spoken word parts of fall down, never get back up again in an ancient greek theater in front of about 100 people…someone came up to me after and told me “I love La Dispute” and walked off…apparently you have fans in Greece…

    Oh man, I’m so happy I live in Michigan.
