Todd Slaying in Kansas City

We’re two days in and just arrived in Tulsa, OK. Our first night was spent playing some music for a very enthusiastic, though small, crowd in Madison and last night in Kansas City was a little bit of a Ghost Town. Regardless, we’ve dubbed this the No Bull Shit tour (hash tag #NoBullShitTour on Twitter) based on some words Todd said at the end of our two night weekend at the Artists Quarter in Saint Paul during which we released our second album as A Love Electric. Todd went on the mic and laid it all out there. “No Bull Shit in this band,” he said, “No Bullshit.” Read the rest of this entry »

That’s right, we’re back at it, and when we’re back at it, the blog is back at it, and when I’m back at it the band is back at it, and when the band is back at it, the blog is back at it…at least when I’m one of the ones who is back at it.

Awesome first sentence. We’re rolling now.

Tour Wrap Up

Yes, I have white pants. Get over it, guys.

So, it’s been a minute since I posted, and a lot of great stuff happened since then. First, I got an iPhone. I have left the Droid family (**tear**) and have gone another direction. It wasn’t you, it was me. Actually, that’s not true, it was you.

SO, in order to make this quick, I’m just going to highlight some things, and then lay some photos on you. Read the rest of this entry »

Our last night in NYC what as you might expect…AWESOME! Jana and I got up early again and explored the world of NYC public transit, making it all the way to the New Jersey Liberty Park where we walked all the way from the final light rail station to the water where we were right by the Statue of Liberty. Unfortunately for us, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, our view of the Lady of Liberty was just of her backside. so…. Read the rest of this entry »

The Bright Lights In New York

Posted: July 27, 2011 in NYC

Boom!

There is so much to say and so little time! We have had a blast playing NYC for the last couple of nights, and we have one more show left, here in Brooklyn, near where we are staying.Todd set us up in a nice hotel in the Hasidic Jew area of the city. An by area I mean there is like an entire city dominated by these curious people who wear all black and don’t show any skin and stare at the ground as you walk by and shave their kids’ heads and wear wigs and all that.

Minus the sports teams, I’m a pretty big fan of Philly. It’s a cool city, not so unlike Pittsburgh in the amount of character, and we always have fun playing here. There were 4 great bands last night after we finished our short 2 hr drive to Philly. We hit a super sweet hotel first and met up with Bryan Nichols, our fearless keyboard player who flew direct to Philly yesterday afternoon. Bryan had no idea what he was getting himself in to by joining us mid-tour. 30 hrs in a van with the same 4 dudes can really….do something. Bryan stepped in to that something yesterday and hasn’t looked back yet. Read the rest of this entry »

Hipsters Crossing

Hamden, CT was anything but usual. The spot was sort of a destination spot with two different music venues, The Space, and The Outer Space. The latter being the venue we played, and also being the venue that is 21+ to get in. I guess they’ve been doing their music thing since 2003 over at that spot so they must be doing something right.

After the remainder of the 9 hr drive from Pittsburgh to Hamden, we arrived at the venue right away in order to unload, set up, and get some food. We came across some interesting photo opportunities right of the bat, and took advantage: Read the rest of this entry »
