News and Stuff

So we (as in Christmas Island) just got back from tour a few days. Overall a lot of fun, though it can be strange playing a crazy show to 150 or more people and then the next night playing to 10-20 folks. But so it goes.

Highlights:

Arriving to Portland at 9, going to a crazy party nearby, getting wild to Mayyors at 11 in a packed, sweaty basement.

Free cartons of cigarettes.

Mayyors is amazing, Pierced Arrows was great, Fresh and Onlys are sounding their best ever, Wounded Lion rule, etc. etc.
