A few months ago Fender guitars invited us to the Houe of Rock in Santa Monica to hang out and record a couple of our songs. We had a great time and want to thank our friends from Fender for the opportunity and for the awesome footage. You can watch us perform "Skinny Bones Jones" and "Living Proof" from the House of Rock below.

It's 12am and we are currently in a hotel in Kingston, Ontario. Last night we played the biggest show of our lives in Windsor, Ontario, opening up for Los Lobos and Neil Young & Crazy Horse!!! It was an absolutely amazing and unforgettable experience. It was the first show of our tour and it's hard to believe that we get to wake up in the morning and do it again...
Driving up to Canada we stopped at a place called Ghost Rock. It also happened to be Donald's 25th birthday!

So....We are currently on the road.... and about to go... on tour ..with... Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and Los Lobos!!!!!!!!!! We're so excited that it's hard to put into words. Our first show of the tour will be this Wednesday, October 3rd in Canada, which will also be our first show ever outside of the U.S.! We'll be sure to keep you posted with pictures and info as the tour progresses :)
Can't believe we get to go to New Orleans!!!! And play at Voodoo Music + Art Experience!! It'll be one of the last shows of our October tour. Gonna be playing on October 26th on the Le Ritual Stage at 4:30pm. Words can't describe how excited we are!! If you wanna go you can buy tickets HERE or you can click on the picture to get more info about the whole experience :)
We are excited to announce that on September 21st, we will be playing at the Bootleg theater and opening up for The Bright Light Social Hour! They are an awesome band from Austin Texas and their self-titled debut album is sweeeeet!! I read that they got all their equipment jacked while on the road which could possibly be one of the worst nightmares any band could go through. I wish this upon no band, but I'm glad to see they were able to raise a lot of the money back and share a night of music with us. We'll also be sharing the stage with our local friends Wake Up Lucid, who's debut album "Feel It" is also sweeeeet and they recently played at Echo Park Rising. It seems that there's just gonna be a whole lot of sweetness at this show, so you better be there!!! All the info is on the rad poster below that Matt made...Ohhh and you can buy advance tickets HERE!!!!!
Wow! Its sure has been a while since our last update. Sorry bout that folks. We just got back from our East Coast tour and realized it was time to give ourselves an update! We left on August 2nd and flew to New York to begin the tour. Our Journey took us from NYC, to Easton MD, to Cambridge MA, to Vienna VA, Charlottesville VA, to Philadelphia PA, to Turin NY, and we ended all the way back in San Francisco with Outside Lands. The tour only lasted about 12 days, but it sure felt longer than that. We had a really great time on this trip, met lots of awesome people, and gained some new experiences about life on the road. We also really want to thank all the people who came out to the shows because we'd really be nothing without you. Unfortunately we don't have photos from every show we played, so below is a collection of images from the times where we actually remembered to take out a camera and snap a pic...

First night in NYC on the Lower East Side
We played on w.e.r.s. in Boston MA. unfortunately, their catalog is really backed up, so our segment won't aired till sometime in January.
