Okay so we have this newfound obsession with gators after spending wayyyy too much time on the endless swampy stretch that is I-10.
Weekend before last we played at Community Records Block Party in New Orleans. Greg and D-Ray put on an amazing event and we had a killer time seeing old friends and checking out bands we hadn’t seen before. New Brunswick homedogs Screaming Females crushed it as usual, and we also really dug Sundog and the World’s Strongest Man. And Caddywhompus was completely insane. Community Records is doing really cool things and all ya’ll should check them out.
Here’s a video of us playing “Safety” at the Block Party:
We also saw a cop on a horse stick the horse’s head inside a bar on Bourbon Street, so there’s that. Thank you New Orleans.
SO. Then we return to our own swampy hometown and played with LVL UP, Two Knights, and Archer Youngster. Through the generosity of the Gator Lord this show was blessed with free beer that was leftover from a previous event at The Summit. We love The Summit and are so excited that you all are coming out to shows at this new Houston DIY spot. If you haven’t been there yet, check out a show coming up:
Are you starting to get the picture that The Summit kind of totally rules?? Because duh.
And then we went to THE FEST. The amount of old friends hugged, great bands seen, and PBRs consumed cannot possibly be counted. And the part where we saw Mineral. And I think we made tour and split plans with a band that is really, really good. Details on that later, gators.
By the way, we made some new shirts and buttons, and restocked a few things. Go to our band store to buy stuff.
