In February, European tour! Thanks to great recommendations from friends along the way, we ate like kings.. maybe one of the best tours food-wise (steaks in Ireland are the best) and the shows were a blast. Also, got to play with old friends and new. Got to say hi to Träd, Gräs och Stenar in Sweden at our show with John Vanderslice, and made new friends in Ireland, the awesome band Large Mound, with whom we are good friends to this day!
