Summer isn't hot enough this year in Bellingham, so we're chasing the sun down the coast. Deep Pockets will be flying out here to alienate our friends and mooch our gear, our ride, and our food. They're basically the New York version of Cousin Eddie from National Lampoon's Vacation movies turned into a four piece band. That's actually a compliment to Randy Quaid because Deep Pockets is awesome and we get to play 11 shows with them. I mean, they are from the BIG APPLE, you guys. I bet they've seen Saturday Night Live in real life.
The first part of the trip will be a reunion with Ilya (remember Fischer!?) and Rosey, who have a new project called Wuv. They are touring with The Dear John Letters from San Diego. So, that's four bands, four shows, four days. For real. What's the common thread? How did these four bands from different area codes align? Let's just say there may or may not be four new contracts working their way through the Sub Pop headquarters.
See you soon!
