We are playing some shows in March

Young Widows, who are a pretty great band, asked us and Shannon Wright (also pretty great) to play some shows with the in March. We don't get to do this type of thing very often so we are excited. Details are on the [ shows ] page but the main thing to know is that we're up and down the East Coast. Nothing west of the Mississippi River yet. One of these days, I hope.

This has provided the incentive for us to finally get some things fixed that have just been ... lingering. So Justin is spending nights out in the studio unscrewing amp cabinets and staring inside, looking for any obvious problems. (He only sorta knows what he's doing.) And then there's replacing stuff. Thus far, that has meant one Craigslist purchase, one Ebay purchase, about six trips to the home supply store, a couple of stops at the big box music place for strings (and replacement capos as Justin loses them) and a trip to the amplifier repair place. This last one was fun. It involved a trip on the subway with 60 lbs of a Crest amp. Man those things are heavy and awkward to just carry around like that.

Oddly enough, we may sell out of the vinyl of the last record before this tour is over. That's unexepected, but it feels like we've done an okay job of guessing about how big the audience for our records are when we put them out ourselves. Funny - if you print up 500 records and sell 500 records, you are in good shape. If you print up 2500 records and sell 500 records ... well, I hope you like that record.

Almost all of this stuff has gotten some use so far. Pro tip: amp cabinets suddenly feel much better when you put a little oil on their wheel axels. How about that?
