June 9: MKE, Cactus Club. white, wrench, conservatory. CD release show w/Viva La Foxx and the Kents. Insane turnout, which confused me greatly. Possibly one of the best sets we've ever played. Top 5 for sure. Viva were amazing and Amy had some amazing camel toe happening (which she acknowledged on stage because she doesn't give a fuck). wwc were fucking solid as hell and had many guest stars. Afterparty was silliness. Giggled watching people hit on Amy with Reuben around. Reuben: "meh, whatever. I remember one time when we started dating and i was playing a show and some dude was hitting on her in the audience. I was getting pretty pissed and then i saw her deck the guy across the face. That's when i realized i have nothing to worry about, so now i just roll my eyes." Or something like that. This was over two months ago.
June 15: Manitowoc, WI. The Batcave. Us, wwc, The Kents, and Surf Ninjas. Oh, Manty. Good times. Everyone played well, we blew away Manty kids, someone got sweet photos of us, Norah and her boy were there, then wwc and we got a pair of cheap motel rooms in Two Rivers and drank with The Kents and their pals. Much love, Manty, as usual.
June 16: Steel Bridge Song Fest, Sturgeon Bay, WI. The Wizard covered the important shit in this Superstarcastic.com post. Jane Weidlin was outside in the beer garden when we played, so she didn't see us, but she owns a copy of Hot Nuggets! now, so, yeah.
August 7: The Vault, MKE, w/wwc and Terrior Bute. We apparently play all our shows with wwc now. Packed basement of 20-some people, free show, hot and muggy as hell, i gave myself a bangover the next day from all the thrashing i did behind the kit. Apparently some of the kids there had never seen us before, which is why we need to play these shows as much as possible.
August 8: Madison, The Annex, w/The Arkhoffs, Johnny Nobody, and The Dollyrots. 7 people paid, but they were cool people, so it was a fun show. Kyle from the Arkhoffs broke his snares, so he asked to borrow my snare drum and promptly broke the bottom head. How'dya even do that? Took the bottom head off his snare; problem fixed. Played well. Ate Taco Johns. Darwin Sampson = total dude.
COMING UP: Replitour! Cinci, Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee! August 31 thru Sept. 3! Go to our website's tour dates page or to our MySpace for details! Holy cow!
