we are four girls sitting in a room, possibly naked, listening to your cd and we think you are really talented. we knew this before, of course, but we fully appreciate this fact now. because who else can write music that four girls, possibly naked, can listen to in a room at nearly 2am and sing along. good job. you are excellent human beings and you're all good rappers too. looking forward to october 24 with intense anticipation. good job, keith, alone at the grove house - you were great. we hope you rap too and that michael tapper does some freestyle and that chris cain tells a dead baby joke and also do weezer because el scorcho rocks as does the beyonce song minus the jay z part. and also tatu. this is very important to us.

we are fans. obviously. ps that was a play on the name of your band. in case you missed that.

also, we really like your new song. even though one of us didn't actually hear it, we all know it's good. really good. something about "don't leave i'm blacking out but it's been fun"

p.s. here is a proposed set list:

please play
spotomatic freeze (it really did work acoustic), and also mothra, and also the method and country livin'.

we hope you have a fun day, possibly naked.

love,
four girls, in a room, at 2am, listening to your cd. drunk. and possibly naked.
