Pix Patisserie Bastille Day Blockparty this Saturday. All day FREE event we play last around 9!

Went last year and was a blast, coincides w/Mississippi Street fair so you can walk on down. Getting all the finishing touches done on the new record, getting business in order, and figuring out what and where we are going to be for the rest of the year. Kinda nutty. In a way I feel like I've been on the road since May 08 on the Jicks tour. Of course it's not entirely true, but with all of the planning and anticipation that has gone into 5 tours with 3 bands since then, it feels so.

Unfortunately, about the only thing to do with the Joggers on here these days is the web address. There are a coupla reasons behind that, but mostly it's good old fashioned inactivity. Ideas and 7"s and the like are out there, but I don't see any real groundwork for a new record or tour anytime soon. Rather than any formal statement I just wanted to put at least THAT out there.

I'm really excited about the rest of the year, and to be able to do what I love so often. It looks like Europe will finally be on the agenda later this year in November, thanks to Nikita, and ultimately, Charlie! Everything else will be posted soon. I can't wait to get all the loose ends tied up so I can enjoy the rest of the amazing summer I've already had. This post is ALL OVER THE MAP,I don't know, I think I'm just thinking too much about turning 35 this fall.

Oh, and also, everyone has got to check out the new(ish) Grails DVD Acid Rain. I have nothing to do w/it really but while in the band, Emil was just finishing it, and we all watched it a coupla times after shows latenight, and it really is spectacular. I miss the shit out of those dudes too.
Here is the trailer for it to get an idea, seriously kill the lights and check it:

Come out this Saturday if u live here, and if not, July 26th for PDXPOPNOW09.

We play next weekend for the Pix blockparty, headline? FREE all ages on Williams and Shaver or somewhere in that vicinity then on July 26th for PDX PoP, outdoor stage at Rotture. Other than that, taking the summer OFF.
