Wowow. These last few weeks have been crazier than we could have ever expected. Leaving Canada and heading into the States for our first-ever headline tour was a nerve-wracking endeavour to say the least...
We hit Seattle, where legalized marijuana is in full flight, and had a great time. We think. Probably.
We continued through Portland and into one our favourite states in America (and the home of Macbeth): California.
In San Francisco, we met up with our pals Hard Girls and Mini-Death (Tess from Macbeth's band!) - both rad bands that you should totally check out if you haven't already. San Francisco was in party mode 'cause the Giants has just won the NLCS (eventually winning the World Series a few weeks later) and it was cool to revel with people. There was whiskey and lego involved.
From San Diego, we drove to LA through all those weird factory farms on I-5. LA is the home of our amazing record label SideOneDummy and it's always rad to hangout with them because we always end up eating too much pizza.
From there, we hit San Diego - where we got some sweet new kicks from Macbeth - and got to hangout with Tess and her dog Creature and those smelly ass seals that totally took over the bay. We also played the legendary home venue of Swami Records, The Casbah.
From San Diego, we headed into the desert. A quick stop in Phoenix and then off to Texas where we met more dogs (aka the best part of touring).
From Texas, we headed to New Orleans where we spent two days with the Hard Girls and daiquiris.
From NOLA, it was onto our inaugural FEST in Gainesville and five days in Florida. But more on that next time...
