We got caught in some serious weather while passing through Iowa on tour. Check out this video! (Brittany filmed and Abe edited).

Is anybody going to the Tam Tam’s tomorrow?

I asked this from stage last night and I think I saw a tumbleweed float by. I guess our fans aren’t the sandals-wearing, frisbee-tossing types. I love you all regardless. And speaking of our show last night. It was sold out! (see above) Amazing. Everytime we come up to Montreal we have a blast. Great […]

New Year’s

A few days before New Year’s we were asked to play a party at the Cake Shop with our friend’s brother’s band, The Subjects. It was a tough decision, but how could anyone say no to playing music, getting free drinks, and avoiding the midtown crowds. Below are some pictures taken by our friends Tsugumi […]
