Show Poem: 3-8-14 @ Listing Loon (Cincinnati, OH w/ Wussy Duo)

I woke up this morning and briefly forgot where I was.
Depending on one’s state of mind it can be a little alarming or kind of liberating experience.
I heard somewhere that it takes the average person 3 days of sleeping in the same place to fully maximize the rest potential for one night of sleep.
It’s a good thing I’m ┬ánot an average person.
Today I woke up on a cold couch in front of a modern Japanese tapestry covered in portraits of shy looking kittens some of which appeared to be beating themselves in the head with tiny hammers.
I imagined them sounding something like this:
Meow, Ow!
Meow, Ow!
Meow, Ow!
I was considering how these cats could be an apt metaphor for my life as a musician.
Tonight, I saw a woman in a restaurant who looked much older than her voice.
She had gray hair and glasses but when I heard her speak she said, “I’d like totally be into that. Yeah, super cool.”
It was weird at first but then after a while I thought it was kinda cool.
I hope I’m like that when I get old.

The Dance Continues

A little quick bit of business: We’ve had a show cancellation on our up and coming European tour for Saturday November 16th. If anyone can help us out with a show between Darmstadt, Germany and Belgium for this date please drop us a line.

Tour Report: So far so good! After great shows in Omaha and Minneapolis (Thanks to Lot Walks and Demolition Means Progress) we have just engaged in Stage 2 of project Dances With Wolves Tour or what we like to call the Jeffrey Lewis connection. After witnessing another stellar night of Jeffrey opening for Quasi at First Ave. in Minneapolis, we’ve hit the ground running and are kicking back in Sioux Falls, SD the night before our first show together tonight at the Llama Pen, in Rapid City.

Not much debauchery to report. Had a lovely walk along the Mississippi River in St. Paul. It was a lot of fun to see Quasi again at the end of this leg of their tour having seen them a couple of weeks previously in KC. Last night’s show was much looser, ending with Sam toppling over his keyboard for the final encore and humping the keys into submission. We’ve had especially good cat luck with Puppy in Omaha and Roxy in St. Paul.
