These Flagging Days.

There is much to discuss--and yet as usual, circumstance betrays objectivity. One thing I can tell you is this: things on this U.S. tour have been undoubtedly strange and beautiful and terrible all together. As most things are. And there are still some days to go.

16th-Neurolux, Boise, ID (w/Evangelicals)
17th-Vera Project, Seattle, WA (w/Evangelicals)
18th-Department of Safety, Anacortes, WA (w/Evangelicals)
19th-Whaam, Bellingham, WA (w/Evangelicals)
20th-The New Frontier, Tacoma, WA (w/Evangelicals)
21st-Backspace, Portland, OR (w/Evangelicals)


There are a few things to be said, however, that are relatively concrete: We have found some truly spectacular friends in these Evangelicals. I celebrated my 29th birthday for the sixth year in a row whilst in Ames, IA. I have lost the ability to feel pretty much anything, and that it's not as bad as it sounds.

So now that everything has gone wrong, we have the pleasure of announcing our certain to be ill-fated European tour--featuring many dates with Deerhoof--beginning SO SOON. We will miss many an American holiday in these, our worldly travels. I think I'll be dressing up like jet-lagged American for Halloween. We look forward to meeting you--especially our friends in the UK.
