Whoa, we’re totally in Portland, OR right now! We just played a super cool show at Backspace last night with crashfaster, A Gentlemen’s Picnic, and BPM Ensemble. Major thanks to Apes Tapes for putting this show together for us, and to Radiation City for showing up. Speaking of the two, check out the chip cover we did of Radiation City’s “The Color of Industry” on Apes Tapes. This, and a number of other chip remixes will be included in a future Apes Tapes release. More info on that soon.

Right now we’re livestreaming on http://www.songatron.com for Jonathan Mann’s Song-A-Day: The Album project! We’re tracking parts for the song “The Only Way I Know How” with crashfaster. There’s still a lot to do left for the stream, so you can still (maybe) tune in, at least if I get this post up in time. Check out the song in its demo form here:

Tomorrow, we’re heading up to Seattle, WA to play a show at Pink Gorilla. Then we’re coming back down to Portland, OR and are hopefully playing a house party we were able to get on at the last minute! Follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook to get details on that as that comes.

Also, special, special thanks to AJAPOPFILMS who is touring with us and making rad videos along the way! We’re heading back home this weekend and will be playing our homecoming show at DNA Lounge in San Francisco on July 7, which will also be the first PulsewaveSF of many. We are totally psyched for this, and it’s going to be a huge show. And for those anxiously waiting, yes — our EP will be ready by then. 🙂
