  1. […] our word for it. Whether or not you show up to see them today, the band would be more than happy to give you all of their songs for free on their website. How’s that for power to the people, […]

    Your guys’ and gals’ music has meant a lot to me over the years. Love your music, love your ethics, love your contributions to the world. Hope to see more output from you guys in the future, and if you ever do any more touring around the east coast, please check out 123 Pleasant Street in Morgantown, WV. You can contact em about booking thru their website’s contact info: http://123pleasantstreet.com/misc/contact That venue is pretty much the only venue keeping any type of indie/punk/metal/jam/whatever “scenes” alive here in WV by booking good shows (from tiny local acts, to nationally touring acts) and keeping shows as cheap as possible. I’d really LOVE LOVE LOVE to see you guys play sometime, and if you came to WV that’d be THE place to play. It’s an amazing, intimate space, considering some of the bigger acts that have come through over the years (Against Me! right before they abandoned their ideals for fame, Built to Spill, Melvins lite, Explosions In The Sky, Bernie Worrell.. etc…) and it’d be the perfect place if you all ever decided to stop through WV. It’s worth the detour just for the beauty of the state 😉 Anywho, thanks for doing what you do, and I hope to see you all in person someday.
