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,

On Thanksgiving, we found ourselves under California stars for the first time in 61 nights.
This is so I don't forget.
Tour started on the hottest day Los Angeles has ever known, September past. Welcome aboard, Marcos. We dove into Sedona skies and nights of deer dodging drives. East bound, not down. Welcome aboard, Lauren. Living in a Maxwell House with Gay in Nashville City. Guster friendships forged. Heidi Ross Picture Show. Davey's first karaoke. Pizza poolside party hang with Howard. Band practice in Columbia and Covington.
