Thanks for the massive support at our very first SXSW. We had a wonderful time spending our days and nights with friends from all over the country. A rare and encouraging experience it’s been to play alongside so many amazing musicians and artists.
And a very special thank you to anyone who came out to any/all of our three shows down there, you made our week.
Our run of shows with Touche Amore began last night in the beautiful state of MS. The south is a great place to be right now. Thanks to our wonderful hosts who are letting 11 strangers stay in their very well kept house.
Make sure to come and check out a show, Touche is one of the greatest bands in the country and they’re not often on this side of it. Plus, Vass is playing bass for those dudes and he’s having a blast. Not to mention he’s doing a bang-up job.

Quick update while the rest of the guys are asleep:
Tour’s off to a wonderful start, so thank you everyone. Here’s some photos from the last couple nights.
Oklahoma City is so amazing. Such sweet and generous people live in this town. Make sure you visit the candy shop near California ave, as the guys that own that place are a couple modern day Willy Wonka’s.
Seeing the OKC memorial at 1am is a surreal experience. It left many of us speechless. Such a sad but absolutely beautiful site.
more for you soon.
with lots of love,

It sure has been very “spring-ish” lately here in GR, and we’re very thankful for that. (Beautiful weather sure makes for happier midwest folk.)
Tour starts tomorrow in St Louis, and we’re all very anxious to get back on the road. Certainly a stressful few weeks sorting out logistics and writing new tunes, but it’s time to go!
Quick note: Vass enjoyed a particular Dustin Hoffman film so much that he named our tour after it. The rest of us still need to see it. Wait, maybe Kevin saw it. Can’t remember.

See you folks soon, and let me know how Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium is. I’ve got a feeling we’ll be watching it more than a few times in the weeks to come,
EDIT: from vass
chad saw mr magorium’s wonder emporium as well and loved it. if he says he didn’t love it he must be joking.
i also left a day early for tour and forgot to pack my phone charger. if anyone has an extra LG enV2 charger and brings it to one of our shows, i’ll always love you.
