Greetings from the Big White Van (whom the rental company named ‘Beth’),

So we’re officially halfway into the instore tour. 5 down, 5 to go. SoCal is in the bag and we’ve made our way north where it feels like it’s friggin October. Nobody told us it was going to be 55 degrees in August. We’re cold. A shopping day is very much in order. Anything with sleeves is tops on the menu. We’ve switched from three Mexican meals a day to three Thai meals a day. Sonic Youth, Faust, Adam Franklin, Eric’s Trip and Naked Raygun have dominated the stereo. We haven’t played the Bass Fishing video game the the rental company gave to us. A fuse blew on Jay’s amp. Twice. We got free t shirts. We got lost. The Big White Van’s battery died. And that millionaire guy killed his model girlfriend.

Are you sorry you missed one or more of the free, all-ages shows Jay’s been destroying? Well you should be. Cause they’ve been awesome. Amoeba Hollywood, Fingerprints, M-Theory, Streetlight and Amoeba SF were all packed to the gills with fans who certainly walked away satisfied. And Amoeba Berkeley, Jackpot, Easy St., Sonic Boom and Zulu should prove no different.

So if you see the Big White Van flowing through your town, be sure to follow it to the next stop for some ear-bending rock.

See yiz,

Jay, Steven, Billy, Mike and Beth

    The only music cd you need to worry about is the latest release from Behemoth—Evangelion is an uberwerk and message for a modern world. the video ov fire and the void at http://www.metalblade.com/behemoth is truly the only art that matters, required viewing for all true believers!
