Drums are tracked for session 1. I had a really good time approaching every song differently and experimenting with different tones. We did some pretty weird stuff but the results are great. I got to track with a 1976 Ludwig yesterday, apologies for the excessive amount of photos.
The rest of the guys have 2 songs to finish up, but we’re actually ahead of schedule, which is great. We’ll have some time to mess around with overdubs and percussion.
Andrew had his 31st birthday yesterday. Send him some love on the Thursday sites. What a great dude.
Love you all, more to come.

we were fortunate enough to see some really great friends that we have not seen in quite some time. (Native, Thursday, Dave, Jess, Mark, there are many many more.)
seeing the Thursday dudes on their stop in grand rapids was a blast. it really made me miss being on tour with such kind and inspiring people. i can’t say enough good things about those guys as musicians and as people. truly a band who does it for the right reasons. bravo fellas.
saturday evening we headed to indiana and played with our best friends Native. love you guys! really. Dan. you rock.
very happy to say that the rest of the ladis/native winter tour is booked! thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. you guys are far too good to us.
