This Month

In the last month we've been in North Carolina, South Carolina, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio (four times), Illinois, Iowa, Florida, Texas, Maryland and driven through many others...

Right now we are stopped in Oshkosh, WI (contemplating whether or not overalls would be a good look for me) on our way to Marquette, MI. 

When we played in Wichita Falls, TX on Saturday it was so hot outside where we were playing I think Natalie almost fell off the stage.... On our way into the hotel tonight I think I could see my breath a little. 

We got stuck 50 feet behind a truck that got pushed off of a bridge by a semi... We had to pull over for a few hours and wait out a 60+ mph wind storm in OH...

One of the clubs we played at has already closed it's doors in the wake of this financial climate. 

It's been a hell of a month...

The Levelator

As seen on the Internet. I thought it looked familiar...



Kansas City, MO

Should it be exciting? No... In fact it feels as though a little piece
of me has died in order to be able to feel excitement over 3.26 gas,
but I feel it none the less.

I actually saw 3.09 in OK earlier today. With no lines. Suck it

Mechanically seperated chicken, pork skin, partially defatted beef
fatty tissue, and vinegar...



Meadville, PA

This morning joe forgot his wallet in the room and as we were loading
the car he went back to get it. Here's his conversation:

"Hey I forgot my wallet in my room. Can I get back in there quick and
grab it?"

"Yes, do you have an id?"

"Ummm. Yes...

In my wallet"

(insert embarassment and ridicule from her co-workers here)

I love it.

Too bad I can't watch it. You know, cause I'll be playing.

body of a brontosaurus.

Hootie likes starburst

Daddy Hoot!

My dad came down to Savage, MD for our show at the Ram's Head
Rathskeller. It was the first time I'd seen him in 6 months, and the
first time he saw our show.
He's always been supportive of me, even after I gave up adult life to
play music all the time. He loved the show, and hopefully we'll be
back so he can hear more!
