Quest Coast Tour Diary #1

Our tour with crashfaster is off to a great start. We had a super fun 8-bit show at Meltdown Comics with Wizwars, who did an awesome cover of The Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights” that I got to sing on, Mr. Spastic who got the crowd clapping nonstop, and of course, crashfaster who had special guest Italia Pierfederici sing with him. Thanks to Marco V. for taking videos of our entire set. Here’s one of our last song, “I Know Now” with the crowd worshipping Matt’s keytar shredding:

The next day, we did interviews and in-studio performances at KSCU 88.7 FM’s The Video Game Music Show with DJ sysop! That was really fun, although our set was cut a bit short due to notorious LA traffic. All in all it was worth it and the staff there was really cool about everything. Picture proof that we were there!

Our next stop is Oakland, CA at The New Parish for a fundraiser for Japan. The New Parish is a really neat venue, and I’m pretty excited to perform there. The last time I was there, I saw Dave Chappelle do stand-up comedy. Then we’re playing at Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa, CA the next night! Check out our shows page above for full tour details.

The Final Countdown

Last night’s show at the 4th annual SubZERO Festival was a blast! It was so great sharing the stage with crashfaster, Goodriddler, and San Francesca.

We’re currently on lock-down at monobomb studio with crashfaster working on the final details of our debut EP, and then we’re sending it off to get mastered tonight (or really, really early tomorrow). Then we’re kicking off our Quest Coast tour! Surprisingly we’re not tired of each other yet…

Our first stop is June 9 at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles. We’re also going on The Video Game Music Show the next evening while we’re still down in SoCal. We also finally confirmed our Seattle venue! Check us out at Pink Gorilla June 24 in Seattle’s University District! For full tour details, check out our Shows page.

That’s about it. We’ll update our website as the tour progresses. I asked Matt if he had anything to add to this post. He said, “whatever.”
