Playlist for 5-29-13

Hey folks,

Happy Friday. Hopefully you have some lovely plans for the imminent weekend. If, however, you are found without things to do tonight or tomorrow, you can come see our band's last two shows before an indefinite hiatus. Tonight (Friday), we're playing with White Rainbow/N O W/Crown Plaza at the Smell. It's all-ages and $5. And tomorrow (Saturday), we're playing with a Hawk and a Hacksaw at the Bootleg Bar. That one's 21+ and $10 because there's gonna be full frontal nudity. And if you don't come spend time with us, at least we had last night, and the great songs we heard:

Happy Friday, folks!

Ready for the weekend? Hell yeah you are. I'm stoked because a bunch of us are doing an Orange County bike-beer tour tomorrow. Thirty-three miles of biking to 6 different bars/breweries. It's two things I love put together in an awesome way. Like reading a book made of peanut butter.

Anyway. The show:

Happy Friday, folks!

Are you ready for Mother's Day? It's Sunday! You better buy your mom something mom-ish before then. We're taking my mom to Pechanga and then the Yard House because she's a drunken gambler. She's my favorite drunken gambler in the world.
