hola comrades of the brave & slightly damp american northwhest & beyond!!!
i’m in africa, with neil….catching up on email and working.
it’s not as bad (or quite as ridiculous) as it sounds. oh, who am i kidding? it’s ridiculous. whatever. i’ll vacation when i’m dead.
jason just barely scraped out of europe under the EVIL ASHCLOUD and has just landed in seattle.
i fly back to boston tomorrow for about 24 hours – just enough time to do laundry, which i assure you has become AN ISSUE – then i join him and eric and sxip and zea (who’s back on board as merch gal) in seattle..and…and we hit the open road.
here’s the situation:
the tour kicks off THIS MONDAY (the 17th), in VANCOUVER, BRITISH FUCKIN’ COLUMBIA…(please note: the venue’s been changed…we’re now playing a venue CALLED venue. go figger. it’s right down/across the street from the commodore, so be sure you go where the crowd of people are — that’s where we’ll be)
we need your help spreading the word like mayhem, mayhem, mayhem!!
certain shows are selling incredibly well, but the northwest sales have been scary, which is astonishing because it’s jason’s stomping ground (literally, he stomps, hard) and i usually do well there. i chalk it up to the fact that people just haven’t been hearing about it, so if you’re in the northwest and you’re reading this….HELP US, we need it bad.
here are the dates and all sorts of helpful links…run, run, run with ‘em…
Vancouver, BC at the VENUE (yes, please note the venue change…to a venue called venue)
