So Many Things

wow, well as mentioned on the Merge BBS it's been quite awhile since i've posted and lots has happened -- we played a crazy rain show, went to calgary and played a show in the sun, came home, the Carolina Hurricanes traded Erik Cole, Jesse Helms died, the list goes on.

speaking of Helms, it's amazing how even his friends and supporters can't think of anything better to say about him than "you always knew where he stood" and "he was such a Southern Gentleman" as if these small niceties somehow balanced out a legacy of intolerance and ignorance. I were travelling last week when the story broke of this gentleman, a state employee who ordered that the flags NOT be flown at half-mast at the lab where he worked, and took early retirement rather than change his directive to his employees.

on a happier note, we had a blast in Duke Gardens amidst awesome storms and buckets of rain. when the clouds burst in the middle of a Matt Suggs cover, everyone came running in under the tent. when it slowed some people drifted back out onto the was a party. here's some pics, including possibly only ever pic of all three siblings in my fam performing on the same stage (as adults)...


naked pilseners
here comes the summer
sour shores
angels of sleep
where's your patience, dear?
sweetness and light
it's all over now, baby blue
some small history
two hearts
drill me
white wave
song for a clock
noisy night
san andreas
i wanna know girls

Last week we also announced the upcoming release of the long-procrastinated Portastatic singles / rarities / demos compilation, entitled "Some Small History"...out September 9th, more on that soon!

That show looks like blast! Wish I'd been storming that tent. To make up for it, I'll be the first to buy Some Small History! For that, I'm psyched.

I just got back from a week-long trip and today is my birthday, so what a wonderful first present to have an RSS update from my favorite feed!
