West Coast shows were amazing!
We reached the end of our short little tour last week with a hometown gig in Victoria at Upstairs Cabaret, and the finale in Vancouver, a classic, intimate gig at The Media Club! Here’s a spicy scene from the gig at Upstairs… we think we’re so funny sometimes: We had an excellent time sharing the stage with our friends in Aegis Fang, Freedom Pony and Sharks! On Fire!, and it was sure a shame that the tour could not continue on through the entire month of October… sad faces all around… but this fall is a time for us to reconnoiter the musical region we exist in and discover an all new approach in which to deliver some sweet new jams straight into your thirsty ear-gullets.

The Fall Tour Begins!
Well, here we are again, folks! It’s been a good year; a busy start leading us into a spectacular summer of festivals and good people across the country, and now in the autumn season in the year of 2013, it’s time for us to once again put all of our trust into the van we love so much, the van that has given everything and taken nothing, a van that forgives us for all of our cursing, urinating in bottles and spilling coffee (along with other liquids, secretions and gross unmentionables) on the upholstery, and go on tour. We will be re-visiting some old haunts and will be performing twice, as well as having a few good beverages with a few good friends, in Calgary for BreakOut West! We’ve had >> read more
