I bolded everyone I’m gonna try and see. Yeah, I’m gonna weasel my way into the festival this year. Somehow. Considering signing up as a volunteer – way I figure, I’ll probably find mad phones and mad drugs. Those are good, right?
Either way, be easy ya’ll. I’ll try and drop a track update at some point this week. For reals.
The answer is no. At least, I don’t. Not that they were a bad band or anything, it’s just kind of hard to feel any type of way about something like this when you sorta forgot the band existed. I don’t even feel like it’s a real break-up…but maybe it is since they haven’t done much since ’07 or so.
Either way, for now, I bid them adieu and await their eventual return. Or some banging Jack White solo shit.
