The Tour goes on...

We made it to the Pittsburgh area last night as we prepare for Slippery Rock tonight.  Our travels have been a bit bumpy.  Our van "Splinter" has been a bit under the weather since we started this journey.  Lagging and Backfiring( think the sound of Jake banging on the suitcase in short powerful bursts)....Splinter has been most annoyed with the steep highway inclines of western NY and PA.  The symptoms got so bad on our way to Ithaca NY we decided to give Splinter a break and leave him at the Wilkes-Barre International Airport.  We rented a Dodge Caravan to get to the show just in time for soundcheck.  The show was worth our struggles.  We shared the bill with the Chicken Chokers, who are an amazing band ( If you don't have there album, you should get it...It's so good).  We also ended the night all playing together and that was such a treat...we look forward to making it happen again.  Anyway that's it for now, I'll report more after tonight's show and after we get a report from Hosea the local car doctor.......p.s.  Mike DeVellis and his group Worange Drexler rocked/funked our world in NYC Friday night, but good.
