I took this one while relaxing pre-soundcheck at the Rickshaw Stop last Saturday, Nov. 30.
Really excited to be booked to play The Independent in a month. Working so hard on NVO just keeps pushing us to work even harder…
That show was hella fun. Thanks to all the mark-ass tricks that came out…
I liked how this one came out; one of our more patient jams of recent memory…

We’re working on getting our name out there more and it helps if you spread the word and get people viewing our video and sharing it on the Facebooks and Twitters. Yeah.

Here’s what the original sounds like: Continue reading
