Hi everybody,

Our tour of the US is going great. We've been so busy that we haven't had a moment to post updates but here are the 1st 3 days.

16 Berkeley CA
Scott had forgotten his shoes in VA so the first order of business was to hunt down a Camper store and get the boy some shoes. We took the bus in and felt like we were in China. The bus reeked of ammonia and people were covering their face with their hands and clothes. Toggi and Scott get CamperedLooking around I noticed a homeless guy who looked like someone had puked over his hair. The bus driver eventually kicked him off. A brutal reminder that some people are less fortunate than others. The guys got all shoed up at the camper store and we're going to petition for a "camper tour support." (read more…)

Things are crazy busy. I'm preparing like a maniac for our 2 week bi-coastal tour of the US and there are just not enough hours in the day. It is funny to think back to some of the hurdles we had to overcome in the past when touring. Like when the bass broke, or when FedEx operator thought Luxemburg was a city in the country of Europe, or when we drove all the way from New York to Detroit and had to turnaround because of the Northeast Blackout of 2003. Well, in the midst of all the craziness of booking last minute gigs, flights, rental cars and radio interviews it's a pleasant surprise to see a video of one of our tunes created by a listener up on You Tube.
