I left a can of pineapples outside of your box last night

Our time in New York was a good one. Met up with the excellent boys in Look Mexico as well as Kaz from PWRFL Power. We also made some new friends all the way from New Zealand called Bang Bang Eche. I didn't ask them, but I wonder if it is okay to call them "kiwis?" Either way it was their first time in the states and they were great. Lots of energy and a gritty sound, we asked them to join us on stage for our last song, "Southern Ocean", an offer they graciously accepted. We stayed with our friend Saul in south Brooklyn at his sweet pad. He is a super nice guy that makes great music too and we watched him make some corn-flapjacks. The drive home was long as we got stuck in traffic, but we had some nice tunes to keep us company: The Secret Machines' new one, Led Zepellin-III, Yo La Tengo-I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One, M83-Saturdays=Youth and Neil Young's After the Gold Rush along with some good conversation.

Here's a vid of Bang Bang Eche:

And a band I know is from New York. We actually listened to Sound of Silver on our way into New York and right as the skyline appeared "New York I Love You, But You're Bringing Me Down" came on. It was, in a word: perfect.

And Koz:

A drop of blood

We are heading to New York later today to play some shows during the whole CMJ hooplathon. I'm not sure exactly how all that works but I think there is a positive vibe in the air and we are all excited.

I know they are not technically a New York band but they are close enough. This is one of the funnier things I've ever seen.

Also, some friends:


A special thanks to everyone who attended our show last night at Rohs Street Cafe. I know I had a great time and I think everyone else there did too. I also got to have one of their famous lattes because let me tell you they are few and far between. Yes, I know that sounds pretentious.

Also, last week I had the opportunity to see a screening of the documentary film called The Ordinary Radicals at the Carnegie Center in Covnington, Kentucky. One of our songs is featured in the film so that was some of my incentive but I had also heard of the film and had been interested to see it anyway. It was great. It was a very thought provoking and honest portrait of progressive Christian thinkers in America told from the road with the "Jesus for President" book tour that happened earlier this summer, which I also saw when it stopped through Cincinnati. I would definately go see it if there is a screening happening in your town or try to get your mitts on a DVD copy. There is such a broad range of voices and issues that are presented throughout the film that I think everyone can glean something from it or at least be challenged in some way by the many different people living for something greater than themselves in such different ways here in America. I also talked to the directon afterwards, Jamie, and he was a great guy and the rest of the soundtrack was excellent and filled with bands and artists that I had never heard of-so it was a very pleasant evening.

Here is the trailer:

I think that is a pretty good way to live.

don't know what to think.


So I have moved into a new house that has no internet. It has been nice though because I have rediscovered the joys of the Public Library. I've been having to get my internet time in at the library each day so that is why my posts have become a little less frequent. The joys of grabbing the key to the bathroom and all the random children trying to be as quiet as they can, the wonderful staff and the endless shelves of books are just a few of the things I've missed about the place.

I had the chance of seeing our good friend Matthew Shelton play the other night and it was fantastic. He played with another gruop called Fanatics and Traitors . They were great as well and Peter Adams even joined them on stage for a few songs. Unrotunately I had to miss Chris Haubner and Solid Pack because I had to work in the morning but they were both in good spirits. Matthew is also a great artist and he just sent me a link to a wonderful video of how he does what he does. Respect.

This very day I finished reading both the bible and a book called Jesus Wants to Save Christians. They were both very good. I am also reading A Prayer for Owen Meany which I'm enjoying very much.

For the time being I will not be updating as much. But that doesn't mean that I don't love you.
