February begins with a momentary return to the road. We’ve been recording drums this month, but will give Peter a break after this mini-tour with Boy Without God:
2/2 :: Portland Museum of Art :: Portland, ME :: w/ DJ Ponyfarm :: 8pm
2/3 :: Firehouse :: Worcester, MA :: w/ Guerilla Toss, Friendship & Happy Jawbone Family Band :: 9pm
2/4 :: The Montague Bookmill :: Montague, MA :: w/ Sorry, Nay
2/6 :: The Red Door :: Portsmouth, NH :: 8:30pm
Then we’ll move onto guitars/bass/keyboards on this first batch of songs and get them into a pre-mix/master state, before we tackle the heavier, singly-er next group of songs (including “The Golden Room”). And thennnn another mini-tour which brings us back to our alma mater, Bowdoin College, on 2/9. WHO KNOWS WHAT WE’LL DO? NO ONE. Then Cafe 939 in Boston on the 10th with our boys Chamberlin and thennn St. Michael’s College on the 11th, where my mom teaches and thennnnn we go to NYC to work at The Tibet House Annual Benefit Concert, which is SO baller. Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, ANTONY and then that bro James Blake, who really isn’t that cool and some other people I don’t know. Well, I know Das Racist and they’re aiight, but Laurie Anderson and Antony will be there, so…eh. But we get to go to the after-party and breathe the same air as these people which, as Jeff Beam would say, is UNREAL. And we have Beam to thank for this opportunity, so…thanks Beam FOR HAVING AN AMAZING GIRLFRIEND WHO IS ACTUALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS MIRACULOUS EVENT.
