Day 11 – Tallahassee, FL

House parties! ( 2 )

Third time in Tallanasty, third house party show with Spencer.
This house was PACKED. Everything unfolded as it should, pure debauchery.
Until the po-digs rolled in and laid down the law. After multiple warnings, orders were to stop the music totally.
Spencer Darr to the rescue – epic announcement that the party is being completely transported to another house a few blocks away.
Thus, second house party! Also packed and raging as ever. Caddy set up and lit the room on fire. We set up and got 3 songs in before the police came again and busted it down.
Party in Tallanasty 4ever.

2 more nights!


Days 9 and 10 – Savannah, GA and Jacksonville, FL

Savannah was slow, Jacksonville ruled so hard.

Fell behind schedule with the videos for many reasons, so two days in one this time.

Savannah looks a lot like New Orleans. We had a brief while to walk around and hang with Chris’ awesome sister, Celia, then hit the venue.
The Wormhole. Pretty cool place, and new, apparently. We spent the pre-show hours making burritos, enjoying 1$ tall boy PBRs, and watching American Psycho and Labyrinth.
The crowd was thin, but we did meet a couple new good friends that we lead to our show by our good blogger buddy, Thomas Dorton.

Jacksonville was AWESOME. Our best best friend Kayla Green welcomed us in and showed us the best sandwiches (Angie’s) we have ever laid stomachs upon.
The venue that night, Jack Rabbit’s, was dark, spacious, a little over-priced, and had awesome sound.
The crowd was party hungry and heart-warming.We will definitely be coming back to Jacksonville.
Afterwards, we lost all good intentions and got sloppy playing beer pong and jamming to really bad music.

And now we’re Tallahassee getting ready to play at the raddest house party place there is, Spencer’s House.
(Only 3 more nights)



Day 8 – Athens, GA

Small bar, cold as F, motel.

Sorry the video may be boring today. To be frank, not that much happened. The views on the ride were pretty awesome, though.
We got to town around 8 or 9. Hungry, we conveniently found a highly revered restaurant (The Grit) right next door to the venue and ate, almost definitely, the best meal of tour.
We were the last 2 of 4 bands, so we got to hang out a lot. It was a very small bar, but looked awesome. Super-disco.
The crowd was thin but among those there were 4 good folks who came all the way from Atlanta just to see Caddywhompus. Friendliest guys. Warmed my heart.

At the end of the night, we were left with no options for a sleeping place. We got lost for a while, then crammed into a room at the Days Inn.
I slept in my sleeping bag under the sink, usually that’d be very comfortable for me, but this was the first night I didn’t really sleep much.
It’s ok though, this is so awesome.



Day 4 – Little Rock, AR

Battle with tuna can, discovery of rice cooker and burritos, fun fun fun show, learned to love Little Rock.

First thing on the list was to re-stock food supply.
Wal-Mart. Picnic. Al sort of had a hard time.
Then to Little Rock. None of us had ever even spent time in Arkansas before.
After serving up some of the finest scratch burritos any of us had seen, on the downtown streets, we loaded in and checked out the venue.
Very welcoming, a community arts center with concerts in the basement. Everyone there was really nice, and all the kids came out and made it a real fun and comfy show.
Partied after. Chris Rehm provided most of the entertainment. Curled up on the most comfortable wooden floor I’ve ever slept on.

Please, no comments on the final clip of this video.

Happy New Years Eve! We’re in Fayetteville, AR playing tonight.

Day 1 – Lafayette, LA

Where else would we pick to start this tour?

The day began with a packing frenzy. Tyler and Alex had just arrived back in New Orleans from their homes and families in Florida and Philly. In the chaos, we had a few close calls. We temporarily (an hour or so) believed our money safe to have been lost, but ultimately found it under the sofa. I also locked myself out of my house for a while as we were trying to leave.
Nevertheless, once on our way, it was all smooth sailing and sick parties.
We love Lafayette, and Artmosphere.
Did you know this is where we played our first show ever, back in September 2009?

Kidi Midi started off the night and hit it HARD. It felt like Andrew W. K. just busted in and lit the place on fire.
Our tour buddies and best buddies, Caddywhompus, took the stage next and made us look pretty bad.
Our set was filled with broken strings, straps, and cymbal stands, but I think we pulled it off. Everyone still got down really, really hard.
Maybe the best night we’ve ever had here.

However, some ominous notes:

– It’s cold as sh*t and we’re not even out of LA.
– This morning, someone busted the driver’s seat window of our car, we have to pay and get it fixed today.

We’re gonna be ok!

Baton Rouge tonight at the Spanish Moon,
I’ll be sendin’ all my lovin’.
