This show's a go. It'll be starting around noon. We'll get way more specific very soon. Way.

Silverlake, CA (Los Angeles)
We go on at around 8:30. The rest is a beautiful mystery.
We're doing a thing at this show, and we think it's a good thing. This thing is that we're going to be giving a free piece of merch to anyone who comes to this show and asks for one. "Hand over my piece of merch, what you promised me, you hounds!" is one way you might ask, or you might be slightly more polite, you fucking ingrate.
UC Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, CA
A noonish outdoor spectacular the likes of which UCSB has never seen and for which they can't possibly be prepared.

We'll be sharing our venue, the Quad, with the Asian Pacific Islander celebration, and we are excited about this. For one, it means free API food. It also means that if we mess up, we can blame it on the Asian Pacific Islanders as a people -- this sort of blanket scape-goating is very much la mode these days, and should go over well. This show is for students only -- yet another reason you should never have left college.

Kids, here is another show where we're pulling that crazy stunt with the free merch for anyone who asks. What, are you too good to take handouts? Fine, then don't show up. Michael will be perfectly happy to keep all of our unsold shirts for his Tapper Museum, opening in June 2004.

This is a house party with the inimitable Psychological Thrillers and John Weatherproof, who are not only the two most mind-pureeing bands in the PDX, but are staffed with guys so cool, it's like making your own mother jealous.
Everyone is invited.

This looks like a hot venue. On the website there's a capsule from InStyle Magazine that calls Sunset Tavern "a hip bar that brings in cools kids in tight Ts and Pumas (think Weezer)." Like, holy shit! The guys from Weezer go in there in tight Ts and Pumas!! If we could get Weezer to like us...!!! We'd have it made, suffice it to say.
