Always sad to leave Chicago. Thanks to all the new friends we made that made our time here awesome and extra thanks to Lappo/Laptop/Laprus for getting us juiced up, the hangs, and for a little cactus stick and poke. Goodbye Spanky, super love to the Young Jesus crew. Got to see our boy, crazy Will, from Dowsing too. Be back soon.

Jeff Tweedy, you didn’t come to the show but it’s cool we still love you dude.

Been a minute since a post. California was incredible. Neil tried to surf in Carlsbad and got a super sun burn instead, we got emotional with Elliott Smith in LA, and went to an old bookstore in San Francisco. California finished with a really dope house show in Redding where we had to say sad goodbyes to our new best buds in Pinegrove and Tawny Peaks.

Seattle was rock and roll and we visited the Nirvana exhibit at the EMP on the 20th anniversary of In Utero. Very nice.

Bonus info: we got some tapes for Known Weed Smoker and drew on a few. Portland tonight!

Thanks to all the friends that have housed us and hung out along the way and to all the new friends we’ve made all over the place.

Fruit picking extravaganza in Oregon right now so all sleep spots on the way to Seattle are booked. Sick 5:00 am Oregon morning sights. Why

We like it in New Mexico. Thanks to Flor for taking us hiking and making the muscles sore.

Really glad the show worked out. Drifter and Matahari brought the dooms. Tempe, AZ tonite. Gonna listen to some future islands

Happy World Cup day

Texas things. This is what the pan handle looks like. No scorpions sighted, lots of outdoor poop smells.
