Feeling This

Back in 7th grade we started our first band and we listened to this song at like pretty much all the band practices. This guy was like my favorite drummer ever for a really long time.
I forgot about this for a really long time but we listened to this song again the other day and it still rules! The drummer is still inspiring!

a bagpipe joke

So a englishman walks into pub with an octupus and decides to make an announcement. He says

I bet 100 pounds that this here octopus can play any instrument you give it!

Everybody in the pub laughs and a welshman gives the octopus a guitar and says "play that!"

the octopus plays the most beautiful classical piece and everybody is weaping!

An irishman gives the octopus a violin and says, "that was good, but can you play this!"

the octopus plays a even more beautiful piece and everybody in the bar is sobbing AND weaping.

Then a clever scotsman gives the bagpipes to the octopus

The octopus looks puzzled, he's not sure what to do. He keeps on looking at it and turning it over and over and over again, searching for something. The englishman freaks out and says "bloody hell! what are you doing! play it!

the octopus says, "play it?! once i get it's pajamas off i'm going to fuck it!"

that settles it.

Tour Blog #8: Milford, CT & BROOKLYN

Milford was by far the weirdest show on tour. Why? it was 21+

a lot of people actually really liked it alot, but we had no idea anybody was even paying attention to us because everybody seemed to be at the bar. A lot of people were also really mad that we didn't have any music available, just posters and shirts.

Panther and Digital Leather played, and both were really awesome. Panther covered one of our favorite songs by Can.

I ate a veggie delite from subway. it wasn't very good. Mike slept in the car, Jonathan did a lot of coke. no, not really.

That night we decided to drive back to new york. We also decided to drop our shit off at the silent barn. So we came back. It was such a nice feeling coming back. We got into the silent barn and saw some familiar faces which was nice. We actually saw Edan (who came with us for half the tour) and we gave him a ride back, it felt like old times.

The next day we got on the train to go to tha barn, and we played a good show. At one point a press photographer took pictures of us for a magazine (i forget which one) but he happened to start shooting when we had to set up our shit. Everybody running the show was a bit antsy and when we went outside to take photos Edan & Dave yelled at us for standing outside.

It was also the premiere of the video for Oh you horny monster! Our awesome friend Carlos did it, and it ruled so much! We're really proud of carlos and proud of the video. We'll put it up when it's online.

Then we played a fun extremely sweaty show. Steve Yankou of No One & The Somebodies was up the whole time freaking out, which is always awesome. We also decided to crowd surf only our instruments. All in all, really fun show.

Tour Blog #7: Burlington, VT

burlington is an odd town. Lotsa old hippies. Very beautiful though. We saw a couple nice views of the lake.

With our buyout, everybody except Julian ate in a weird mexican food joint. Since i don't live in LA and am not surrounded by amazing mexican food everyday, i thought it was good, but i'm sure somebody that lives in a state that boarders mexico would think it sucked.

Then we went to this place called QTee's which was an ice cream place. Ian got a sundae in a boston redsox helmet. They didn't have a yankees helmet so i got a san diego padres helmet.

Claire and Mia came! which was really nice. It's really nice to see familiar faces on tour. We chilled out for a bit.

The opening act was a dude named Luke who played snare drum/keyboard/guitar and looped everything. it was really cool.

Bat attack played and they ruled as always. Then this band from Chicago played called Killer Whales played. They were really good. It was pretty cool funky punk with 2 drummers.

There was a really good crowd there which was nice. I honestly didn't expect many people to be there. In fact a couple people came for us, which as always blew our minds.

Maybe this is me being a biased new yorker, but i think that anybody who loves punk or "alternative" music or DIY culture in burlington just goes to any show regardless of the band. There's not much to do in vermont. i guess you can go to the Ben & Jerry's factory though.

After the show we rode our friends bikes (which we haven't done for a week or so) which was really nice. Then we hung out with our new friends Amanda, Will and Olivia. We had some breakfast with Amanda and Olivia the next day too.

All in all, burlington is fucking strange, but cool place.

Tour Blog #6: Boston, MA


Last night we left Providence late and drove to Boston to stay at our friend Paddy's house in Allston, MA (basically in Boston). As we were driving, we saw what looked like a tornado in the sky. We never found out what it was but I'm pretty sure it wasn't a tornado.

We got to the house at like 4 or something and went right to bed, 9 people in one small room. Generally so far I've been sleeping really well but I had a really bad nights sleep, mostly because it was super crowded and uncomfortable and it was pretty loud. When I went to sleep people were talking and then I woke up to people blasting Knyfe Hyts and like playing guitar.

Anyways, I was in and out of sleep for a while and then woke up really late and ate ice cream from a cool vegan ice cream place nearby. Then we went to a music store for a bit. I bought the worst quality drumsticks I've ever bought. They cost $1.50. I bought 5 pairs and broke all of them in 4 songs today. I guess you get what you pay for.

I brought 26 pairs of drumsticks on tour and they're all broken now, which is crazy.

We also got some dust masks at a hardware store, because the basement we played in tonight was super-dusty.

The show tonight was awesome. It was Paddy's 21st birthday party, so a ton of his friends came out, plus a bunch of Bostonian Fiasco fans. We played a short set because we were worried about cops showing up, but they never did.
At the end, we teamed up with our friends Bat Attack to cover "Say It Ain't So" by Weezer, one of Paddy's favorite songs.

The party was super loud and went on really late, so right now we're chillin in our car outside

Tour Blog #5: Providence & AS220

Providence was maad empty. We loaded in and talked to the soundguy, who told us that we can't do covers at all. If a band at AS220 does a cover, they get the power shut off, don't get paid and can never play @ AS220 again. We all checked email and then went out to look around. Mike showed us a cool diner that was literally a trailer. Ian (from bat attack) and I had some veggie burgers, that were probably boca burgers, but they still tasted good. Jonathan's mom Lisa came up also and bought jonathan and I milkshakes from that same place. They ruled. We played a relatively short set (maybe only 20 minutes). it was good. We also met a bunch of people who specifically came to see us, which was awesome and crazy. They we really cool people who offered us to play pool in their house, but we couldn't go because we had to drive up to boston. OH yeah! Our friend Claire happened to be in Providence and she stopped in and said hi. we all freaked out because we haven't seen her in a couple months, and were just totally not expecting it. She said that she'd be in Burlington when we're there also.

As we left for Boston I mooned bat attack. it was awesome


Providence was seriously like a ghost town when we were there, probably just because it's August and colleges aren't in and we played downtown


North Hampton, MA

This guy looks seriously like Jona Bechtolt of YATCH but it's not


Edan and Mike have been doing our merch

DC's subway system is awesome

Tour Blog #4: Lancaster, PA & Springfield, MA

So 2 days ago we had a show in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with some really cool bands: Fun Dogs, Hot Guts, and Deerhunter. The venue was this café called Ad Lib that had a mall on top of it and 2 pianos inside that we played on. It didn't serve alcohol, only juice and water. Everyone was really nice there, especially all the guys from Deerhunter, who in addition to playing an amazing set, gave us all t-shirts. We had a nice t-shirt swap. We stayed at an Econo Lodge, and in the morning dropped Edan off in Hoboken, NJ on the way to Massachusetts.
In Springfield we had a show at Mike O'Neil's father's Irish social club. We didn't expect a huge turnout, especially after there was a huge hail/rain storm, but about 100 or so people ended up coming. We played with My My, Bat Attack, Aeroplane, 1929, and American Business Machines. Near the end of the set everyone sang along to "War Pigs" and we finished by all playing drums together. Later, us and a guy from Aeroplane, 1929 had a drum circle, banging on chairs and tables and drums. We ate at a 50's diner and blasted some Screamin' Jay Hawkins before heading over to Mike's parents' house and watching the Olympics.

Tonight we're playing in Rhode Island at AS220!

Rest stop

This is where we played in Springfield, MA
