Ottobar, You almost killed me.

Photobucket

It must have been at least 105 degrees on stage tonight.. Next time you practice with your band literally try it in a sauna so you can prepare yourself for what its like if you're gonna play the Ottobar in the summer when its packed. I was exchanging looks of fatigue and boiled excitement with people all night as they stared at us on stage like we were hypnotizing them.. and I don't mean that in a way thats giving ourselves props..

I'm still a little bit dizzy right now.. I'm laying on the bed at our hotel trying to hydrate myself after tonights show in Baltimore. Those of you who might have been there definitely know what I'm talking about, and for those who couldn't get in I'm sorry, we'll try and play a bigger place next time but until then you can all just roll out to Philly tomorrow. We narrowly dodged bursting into flames tonight.. At the end of Decrescendo tonight I started to see stars and flashes of light, but I managed to stay on my feet.

I'm gonna get some new kicks tomorrow in philly. belee dat. And now I shall shower and more importantly rest so that we can play a good show for all of you at the TLA.
Peace out foos.

amazing show tonight. when you guys were runnin the set it made me forget the fact that i was drenched in sweat. i was the kid hanging on to the PA in front of where you played. gotta say somehow you topped when i saw your opening set at the 9:30 club earlier. and overcome live was fuckin sick. take care man.

The show was sick and sweltering as usual. As awesome as a bigger place would be, the Ottobar is the most fun venue in Baltimore, man. Visit often. Baltimore loves you.

Glad to hear everyones still partially healthy an goin strong. Hope you guys enjoyed your day of rest and recuperation. I'm hopin and prayin I can see you guys Saturday night in Mass. Online tickets were $8.00 extra so I was gonna buy at the door. Takin proper precautions, I contacted Harpers Ferry and was told that might be risky. So I confer with friends and decide to bite the bullet, play it safe and buy tickets online. Of course, now they're sold out! My ray of hope is that the venue said more tickets could be released tomorrow. I've caught you guys everytime you come up through New England since your tour back in January/February of '04 with my best good friend Cooper. I had the pleasure of shootin some HORSE and 2 on 2 with Matt and Sheets back in '06 at the Living Room in RI. Consider this a plea of help if I come up short tomorrow. Hope to see you in a couple days man. Best wishes for the rest of the tour, peace.
