hard times in kelso, wa

Sorry we have been slow at updates. Intermittent access to the internet, biking around in 100+ degree weather and not having much down time has left little chance. We’ll be posting more photos and stories in the next couple of days, when time allows.

A brief report: had a fantastic time on Whidbey Island, hanging out with our friends Ashley and Eli of the band LAKE. They have an amazing piece of land, right near this lake we went swimming in, and we did the screening outdoors. It was super fun to have a couple of opening bands: Chrissy and Flurpy, which were both hilarious and dreamy.

Biked down to Seattle and did a show at the Vitta Cafe. It was a pretty good show but way hot. Also David and I set a record by devouring 3 pizzas in about 10 minutes.

In Tacoma the show fell through and we wound up camping in someone’s yard. The couple we stayed with were super nice, despite the framed picture of George Bush above their TV. The woman even brought us strawberry shortcake!

Then it was down to Olympia, where we did a show at a neat all ages space called Nothern. A light turnout but enthusiastic crowd. During the encore an applause-o-meter was implemented to decide the fate of “Choose Your Own Adventure”.

Next on to Chehalis and the Matrix Coffeehouse. The show was a pretty poor turnout: we wound up playing the show for one guy who showed up on a TV (in actuality he thought he was coming for song group night). Now its the homestretch back to Portland and Eugene…
