We're honored to play a rock show this coming Tuesday at the Echo in LA for Kevin Bronson's Buzzbands.LA 3rd anniversary. We're excited to be playing with Hands and Death To Anders. Kevin has been with us since Day 1, and probably before that ... his support and knowledge of local bands in the deep and murky Los Angeles pond might best be defined as musical speleology (yes, that's a real word!). The man knows his shit, and he's not afraid to say when something IS shit. There's more info here if you're a MyFaceSpace person: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=246716692038701
Tickets are $8 in advance, and just $5 if you RSVP to . We'll bust out some new songs. Also, we're going back into the studio this week with one of our favorite dudes, Rob Schnapf. More updates on that real soon-like..
Two shows this week ...
We're returning to Big Sur on Friday, 10/21/2011, for a festival curated by Ben Lovett from Mumford & Sons: Communion in the Redwoods at Fernwood Tavern with John Vanderslice and Secret Sisters. For advance tickets: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/2281969432
Then off to see our friends in San Diego to headline Indie 94.9's Rocktoberfest outdoor stage at West Coast Tavern on Saturday evening, 10/22/2011. We'll be joined by The Soft Pack, The Creepy Creeps, Dead Feather Moon, Bully, The Styletones, Low Volts, The Heavy Guilt. Tickets are available here: http://westcoasttavern.frontgatetickets.com/choose.php?c=1&lid=59624&eid...
Howdy pinhole canopy skippers, tiller toward the ink black sea booty stealers, and deep lost soul boatmissers ... we have a show in LA this week that we're pretty excited about. Jack O'Neill is the man with the pirate patch winking at you there.... He is also the fella credited with making the first wetsuit. All so he could body surf his favorite break near Santa Cruz in the 1950's, where the cold nutrient-rich waters make the "red triangle" such an, um, innaresting place to paddle out. Having grown up in the tumblers, we're pretty honored to be asked to headline this year's very special O'Neill fashion/rock show at the Avalon Theatre this coming Saturday. There will be a runway fashion show SoCal-style, as well as a design contest featuring the artful creations of 5 high school students. We're really happy to be involved for so many reasons, but I've got some personal ones to grin about:
The La Brea Tar Pits is the site of the ninth annual TarFest, a free indie art and music celebration, this Sunday, September 25.

Also catch us today, September 23, on the air and online. We'll be performing 3 songs on the air at LA's new KCSN 88.5 at 3pm pst. Then later in the evening, check out our take-over on indie 103.1 from 7-8 pst.
Looking forward to sharing some sticky fun with you this weekend!

Checkin' in. We're playing a festival show in San Diego next Sunday for our friends at FM94/9 (http://www.independencejam.com/) and then off for a west coast theatre tour with My Morning Jacket that will take us back to Vancouver for the first time in a while (pirate map in hand). Looking forward to the trip. MMJ's new record Circuital is out this week, and I encourage you to buy it... I love it, a special record indeed. Gives me chills. After our tour with them, we'll be heading to the midwest for some festival dates including Taste of Chicago with The Jayhawks, and our first time playing Milwaukee Summerfest. We'll announce all the details to that stuff soon...
Hi. So, ermm... honestly how do you like this website? Is it working out? Got any comments or suggestions, we're an ear. We probably don't use it enough but we'll be better about that in the coming months. We've just had our heads down working hard both playing shows and recording a new record with our friend/co-conspirator/producer/genius ........... Richard Swift in Cottage Grove, OR. You can visit him here: http://richardswift.tumblr.com/
We're toying with Elijah's idea of some sort of podcast. Most definitely a rambling and personal mess. We'll talk about recording, vintage guitars, global climate change, basketball, surf reports, the bear flag republic, whatever is on our frantic minds. Maybe it will entertain you, but mostly it will entertain us...
Over there <- you'll see our new lead singer, my nephew Alexander! Well until nap time, that is.
Hope your summer is filled with light,
