There's us in Houston this morning, at an awesome community center / library / vegan cafe called S.H.A.P.E.
We all just had some amazing veggie burgers and sweet potato fries. I hope you dig the flower effects that my amazing webcam does... Oh and the person in the top left is our good friend Sock from Xtra Vomit, who is on tour with us.
Tour has been great. Springfield was SO GOOD. All because of Chris / YEUNG / DOG FOOD. We love you so much Chris!!! Check all of his projects out at http://deathsquadmarch.blogspot.com/
Then we had a really long drive. Shit got loopy in the van.
Houma ruled. HEAT DUST is a new punk/shoegazey type band that blew us away. We listened to their cd like 15 times already, literally. Before the show, we got lost in Houma trying to find the venue. At a stop sign, a woman walked up to our van, bleeding heavily from her head. She asked if we could take her to her house because she had just gotten beaten up really bad by her boyfriend. So we took her to her house, and the venue just happened to be right next to her house! Thanks be to the Goddess. Our thoughts go out to the woman from Houma.
New Orleans is such an amazing town. Just letting you know. Go there when you get a chance. The show at the Hey Cafe was an awesome time, thanks a ton to Greg from there and Bryan / THOU. IMPRESSIONABLE YOUTH were incredible. I found a fellow Berserk lover and my life is getting that much closer to complete. Thank you, Bilal, for being fucking awesome. We stayed with Bryan and Emily in their beautiful home, I loved it there.
Houston was interesting. Madison met up with her best friend of all time, who lives here now. The record store Vinyl Junkie is fucking stacked, such a good place. The show had a heavy "jaded" vibe, lots of not give a fuck attitude. However, there were some great people there, and our new friend Ford who booked the show is so sweet. Thanks! Check out Turbokrieg, they were insanely good. IPV was really cool as well.
All in all, everything is good so far. The van has been acting a little weird, but we figured that problem out I think. In Houma, I thought my Peavey Windsor head blew up. The next day we took it to a music store (Webb's Bywater Music in New Orleans, SUCH A GOOD PLACE!) and it was a quick solder job and a re-tube at an AMAZING price. Couldn't believe it. Sweet!
Okay, Up next is Fort Worth, Dallas, MAYBE Birmingham, and then 5 Florida dates with THOU and FALSE. So pumped! We'll try and keep the blog updated along the way.
