Gosh, I thought this would be a brief post, but so many things happened in the last 24 hours. We’re currently in Kirkland, WA staying with our dear friend Salisbury after having played an EPIC show last night at Pink Gorilla in Seattle. I try to choose when I use the word “epic” wisely, but I’d say this time would be very appropriate… wouldn’t you think?

Also, two great videos went live yesterday. The one above is a short montage of our journey to Portland, OR, plus some live footage of our set at Backspace. We’ll be posting another one soon of our Seattle portion of the tour, but first, here’s the video from the Song-A-Day thing we did for Jonathan Mann last Thursday:
For those who missed the livestream two days ago on songatron.com, we and crashfaster spent all day tracking instrumental parts on this song. Crashfaster tracked Game Boy and vocoder, I tracked some guitar, and Matt tracked –wait for it– bass, toy piano, accordion, organ, and synthesizer, and we all tracked some handclaps. Matt also choreographed our dance for the song. Check it out at the end of the video.
Today, we’re heading back to Portland, OR to party at a house show and say goodbye to our friends there. I personally am not ready to go back to the Bay Area, but we’ll see you all at our homecoming show at DNA Lounge on July 7! You can already get advance tickets here.
I asked Matt if he had a quote for the end of this post:
“Pfff, no. Too early for that.” -Matt Payne
