Magic spinach pies

We're in the van again, driving down the 5, AGAIN. I know every cotton field, every orange orchard and every Magic Mountain on this interstate. We're just about in LA, which means nothing since we have to drive to Austin, about 28 van hours from SF where we just played.

Here are some highlights of the tour so far:

-- We did a daytime VIP show for KEXP (who is also presenting the tour!) at the Triple Door in Seattle which was pretty rad. To listen to the show, go to, click "streaming archive" on the left and then request 10/10/07 at 4:30 pm PT.

-- We've played a couple Amoeba instores, here are pics from the Los Angeles Amoeba show.

-- We did a two day video shoot in Portland with big brain James Sumner. In true scattered genius fashion, he had duck tape holding his glasses together. The video should be done in a month or so, we're excited to see what he comes up with. Here's a little hint on the video: THE DUDE does Disney.

During the shoot we went to dinner at Nichol's. Sumner ordered 3 spinach pies (2 for dinner, one to go).

-- In SF Dave was offered two weed cookies at one show and a joint at another. Must be the hair.

-- We played for the first time in Sacramento, even though we lived only 90 miles from the city for about 6 years. Red Host and Eulogies both sounded great, fun show.

-- We were informed at our SF show that we're big in Johannesburg by someone visiting from there.

Thanks to our fans who have come out to the shows in Costa Mesa, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco -- great seeing everyone. We're feeling a lot of energy at our shows and fan-love right now.

thanx for the update. glad to hear things are going well...just hope the van-lag (if you will) won't make the tx shows too sleepy. see you in dallas on wed.

one thing to keep in mind when playing the cavern is that they like to push their set times. if you actually want more than 10 people in the audience, i highly suggest starting on time...which they have listed at 11p currently.
