Wahoos Represent

drove up from Chapel Hill to Charlottesville today, listened to the new Mastodon record and a John Irving audio book, highway 29 is nice and did you know there's something called the Danville Expressway? neither did i, but it's fast. Margaret drove down from NYC and we had a brief rehearsal in the afternoon. the club (Satellite Ballroom) is the nicest i've been to in this town (though Tokyo Rose has a place in my heart) and the crowd was great for us...some folks new some songs, the others were patient if chattery. setlist for our first duo show since Other Music last year:

Center of the World
Angels of Sleep
Sour Shores
Black Buttons
Drill Me
White Wave
You Blanks
Bye Bye Pride
San Andreas
I Wanna Know Girls

i forgot to say something about what a huge asshole George Allen is (saw plenty of campaign signs on the highway today, tho i saw some Jim Webb signs too) onstage.

matt ward is playing a beautiful version of Let's Dance right now....i gotta go!

Nice!

Really looking forward to the mini Merge festival at the Cat's Cradle Tuesday night.

I've yet to see Portastatic live - do you usually perform with a full band?

Mac and Margaret,

Excellent show, my first one for Portastatic, will certainly be there again in Oct for your full on show. I slipped Margaret my band's CD for Mac (minus the sidekick). Hope that you enjoy it on the rest of your journey.
Margaret is cute.

Enjoyed the show immensely. Sorry if we were chatty, but we were just talking about the new material and the amazing cover. Oh, and we hate George Allen too. Never did I think I would crave the nerdy competence of Jim Webb.

Mastodon-Atlanta's finest band since the Black Crowes. I can't wait for the show tonight!
