Mon. Trey. All.

My fingers smell like ribs. Night night.

Bad Blogging

So, i haven't been nearly as diligent thus far on what I hoped to be a return to form "tour blog" but....Im gonna try and catch up but also am realistic enough to know that it cant ever be like it once was, and theres too many factors to why that is true. Its a different animal, and a different pace and buzz control. But it is great so far and I think tonight, in Ottawa, we may have glimpsed what it might mean to hit our stride. Not that we have, but it was a sweaty burner, the setlist perfect, and if it were any other band I've ridden the rails w/ we'd stick w/it for many or most of the shows, but that won't cut it out here. And thats fun too. Got out of MY comfort zone tonight ,in a good way and the encore consisted of TWO songs I HAVE NEVER PLAYED but it was a blast. Once Steve sheds his jet lag, and I can heal we'll b all good. I'm currently nursing THREE contusions from the last 2 nights all foolishly acquired in the clumsy line of duty. But worth every bloody drop. Holy Sons are delivering and morphing from orb to orb each night. Every single one of them dudes is a master. Im sad Wilson cant be here with us, but the only consolation is really seeing each Son really shining. It's only the beginning. Send money

Prep Week: Promises

Final 5 days to prep for Jicks tour, work, go to the doctor, practice, and play a Nightmoves show. I'm going to do my best to continue tour blogging for this upcoming SM/Jicks tour as I have for all the others. Mike and I leave early saturday morning, the 17th to drive the van and gear to Detroit by the night of the 19th. It's gonna be a long haul, but we're loaded w/Dead shows and podcasts. The late summer here in Portland has been great and MFNW just finished up. I love it here but I am very, very ready to get out of here for a while...... See you out there.

Jicks on Fallon, watch whole episode, while u can

copy and paste, won't let me link it. Was a fun wild time.

LA and NY were an exhausting blast. Throw in Hurricane(?) Irene and you've got a helluva trip. 3 instores, 2 tapings, countless dinners, a sea of drinks, and 4 celebrity hob-nobs. Back in Portland for a busy 2 weeks to get ready for tour.

Hookers open for Grails in Seattle, and Vancouver
Nightmoves play in Portland 9/16.

Then I'm off................
