—>north amerikan urban outreach program, STAGE ONE…

by efrim.

best w*sterns/c0mf0rt 1nns, trembling in anticipation!

soon we load, roll, unload. soon we panic-attack at random toll-plazas. soon we glory in empty carbohydrates, fuel additives and sticky carpeted monitors. soon we bring it to the kids and marvel at the myriad ways that parents break their children.ย  soon we strum, pluck, smash, scrape and holler.ย  soon we sleep like the dead in airtight sarcophagi, next to the interstate where the air-brakes growl…

    We miss you on the West Coast of the United States! Thinking of flying to see you this time around… although sitting in the belly of those giant metal birds scares me. Any hope that you will come within driving distance of California in the next year or so?

    It’s great hearing from you guys(/gals) more often. I enjoyed the mix tape, the new album, the metalbird video, and am continuously inspired by all your previous albums & live recordings in ways that I never thought music could inspire me. Just wanted to extend a simple thank you from this tired pigeon to the beautiful coop on top of mt. zion. It is a bit of a drive to Chicago, but hopefully I’ll be there. Keep on keepin on.

    Why so much negativity? They’ve just announced 16 new tour dates and all anyone can talk about are the places that they aren’t playing. Cut them some slack. I’m sure the’re trying their best to make all the fans happy.

    Also, for everyone who’s complaining about how they’re not playing a show in Montreal, the Constellation website says that they WILL be playing a show on June 4th at the Ukrainian Federation Hall.

    Sweet, bought tickets to the Ottawa show only to find out afterward that it’s 19+, which I turn in July. Gotta love arbitrary laws like that. Time to fake an ID!

    lol finding an empty storefront in Hamilton is unfortunately easy, the city is so run down now. Fortunately there are still some nice places to sit and read…

    Missed your last tour due to a fiasco in New Orleans. Still have the Tickets tacked to my wall like a badge of ultimate failure. See your pretty faces in Carrboro, NC. and again in Asheville. And then in Atlanta. And then again in Nashville (my home sweet home). And finally in Newport, Ky. Praying huge prayers the world doesn’t blow up first.
