After our REALLY fun shows in NYC we were on our way to Philadelphia and our precious van decided to expire.
At first we thought we could fix her, but it turn out we're better off just letting her go. :(
We our on our way back now to try and catch our last show in SF at Hotel Utah. Noah Wheeler will open the show and Brad Brooks(SF) will be on the bill as well.
This photo is a picture of the rear view mirror reflecting the beautiful sunset. We will miss you " chief " ( our van ) but the show must go on!!
all the best*

Well, we made our way through northern NY to finally arrive in NYC!!
We had an awesome time at the Rochester food fest. I have never played outdoors and the stage was really big! There were lots of folk there, my goal while playing was to get the furthest person away from us to stop in there tracks and come check us out. I think it worked with at least one... a security guy way in the back ended up buying a cd :)
After Rochester we made our way to Buffalo NY. On the way we realized that Niagra Falls was really close so we missioned there as fast as we could! We decided to take the tour that takes you as close as you can get to the falls and all three of us got drenched! It was really thrilling getting that close to a water fall. Made us feel like we were 3 years old; laughing and screaming uncontrollably.
Also in Buffalo is Righteous Babe Records, the most honorable label in the US. Ani diFranco started the label on her own to release her own records, but now Righteous Babe releases some of the best records! Arto Linsday's newest as well as Andrew Bird. We decided to go by Righteous Babe (which is in a beautiful old church) to say hello. They were so nice to us and gave us one of her newest releases!!
Now in NYC, Noah Chris and I feel right at home. All three of us have lived here at some point, so we've been having a blast catching up with friends... Our first PIANOS show went great!
Tomorrow we play there again with PERRY WENT HOME, (Noah's band from St. Louis)
Hopefully the show will be as good as the last one!

We've made our way to Salt Lake City,
then to Denver, Omaha, Lawrence, Kansas City and St. Louis!
Every show keeps getting tighter and tighter and the bond developing on stage between the three of us just keeps getting stronger.
Denver was lucky. We had a little van trouble ( turned out we got bad gas) and barely made it to this show! But thanks to Jordan and Jean, we had a really fun night!
Our show in Lawrence with Another Holiday and Aubrey was really fun. While we were in Lawrence, we thrifted it up and i got a View Master from the 60's. There is a photo that came with it that is of a man underwater. It completely freaks me out. Lawrence people are really cool and i'm really excited to get back there during the school year.
We had a day in St. Louis and decided to use it to hook up our VCR.
Exciting, for many reasons, we have so many VHS tapes we are so excited to watch!
Tomorrow: WILD AT HEART

Yesterday we made our way to Provo, Utah from Reno.
I did not realize that Utah is pretty much a Mormon state.
Last night after a great show there, a really nice guy named Tyson offered to have us stay at his place. His place is directly over the venue we played at.
After we got sponsored to get into the bar for a beer, we returned to his house, where he and his friends were playing mariocart.
After a few minutes I decided to go for it and ask them about being Mormons.
I'm not too familiar with it and knew that it is a big part of Utah culture.
We proceeded to have a 3 hour long conversation til 2am!
We learned so much about it!
So now we are in Salt Lake City with brand new perspectives on Utah. hehe
The people in Provo were really cool to play for, they received us very well.
I think lots of people who were there last night are coming to the show tonight!
Tomorrow off to Colorado!

Last night, JUNE 14th we kicked off our tour in Silverlake, CA.
It was such an amazing show for many reasons.
- my band Noah Wheeler (on drums) and long time friend Chris Peck (on bass)
i feel this the BEST the music has ever sounded!
these people are truly gifted musicians
i feel so lucky to have them rocking out these tunes!
- the monolators.
(LA based band)
it's rare to find musicians that really extend themselves
both eli and mary are such an inspiration for me.
- ema and the ghosts
ema has the sweetest voice,
it made me feel pretty.
- driving " the chief " (our van) ^ to her first show!
we are SO excited about our van. it's hard to describe,
but ever since i was little i've dreamt about having a car that feels like home.
Now we're off to Sacramento and are so excited to play together again!
