Shit the bed, it's like one whole damn year since we took this music to the people.... NEW record... rusted rehearsals + + figuring how in the name of holy hell do we play these new children of ours live?!?! - - - We busted some guts and our dear, dear, dear friend Tim is with us on sound for his SP debut..... We are mighty glad for this. HELLA drive north but we have catch up talk and the time is flying.... ~ ~ Arrival on festival site = chasing away the rain with our minds to set up the tent. We make it. s t a g e time is 12:30am = a long wait + dodging the wind and the rain as best we can. Tentatively drinking beers in anticipation..... meeting some old friends. Things are late / curfew beckons / we rush the set up and do the best we can. Tired, dark, no time for fixing shit.... head down and play/play/play. It's difficult but we survive. S o m e h o w. The festival setting is truly beautiful by day and by night and we drink until we fall asleep. We rise with fuzzzzzy minds and search for coffee and breakfast. Tim is broken. We move slowly and carefully before the HELLA >> drive south again.
