okay! Phoenix show was cool. Hether did a backwards somersault during a solo as part of a friendly frontman competition with Mark Tester from Burnt Ones.
Amy from Burnt Ones lent me some books she wrote in Elementary school and here are some of my favorite quotes.
in the story Kittens,she opens the book with “I know pretty much about kittens” which is a strong start to a wonderful true story of her cats she helped raise as a child.
my favorite book however, is a book entitled The ABC’s of the Titanic which is dark and cryptic as fuck. here are some quotes.
“K is for Killed which most of the people on the Titanic got.”
“W is for Well Trained which the crew was not”
“X is for ‘X-Clusive’ rooms”
“Z is for Zillions of people who died on the titanic”…yeah she went with Zillions and i think the book itself is fantastic.
We played the Trainyard venue in Las Cruces NM and despite a small turnout, it was still fun as every time we see Burnt Ones we love them more and more. Blasted Canyons are Burnt Ones biggest fans and ever since we split after breakfast yesterday morning, we’ve missed them immensely.
after the show we hit the road at around 1:30 a.m. and drove the 10+ hours all through the night to Austin. we arrived around noon or 1 and took naps before our show at this wood Mill. I don’t recall the name of the venue but it was giant.
Magnetix was sick. K-Holes we’re fucking fantastic. we played one of our best shows yet which was great as we played right before Thee Oh Sees. the sound was good at the venue and our re-worked setlist seemed to flow real well.
Thee Oh Sees played in front of less people than i’m used to which was a treat to say the least. i sat on the side-stage and watched the whole set from there and they sounded awesome as usual. man those guys are on some next level shit.
The Mallard played later and we stuck around for that. it was cool to see them in Austin as their debut record was just released and people were hyped to see them in action. they played great, love those guys.
i feel like i’m leaving out some great stuff but as you can imagine or if you’re here you know it’s very busy.
today we play the And So SXSW Showcase here’s the link http://www.facebook.com/events/100257953429697/ and this, the Gent Bent Showcase http://www.facebook.com/events/348470511840667/
