2018 wrap up / 2019 Japan tour and West Coast dates

The 20th Anniversary shows were an absolute blast, through and through. Spirits in the band are soaring (we still get along), and we are ready to take on 2019… it will be BUSY (more below)! Big thanks to the all the folks who packed the Sunset Tavern and Clock-Out Lounge, and the bands Pink Parts, Hound Dog Taylor’s Hand, Fall-Outs, Tissue (who sadly needed to cancel but Whiting Tennis was able to step in at the last minute!), and DJ Veins (aka Dave Segal). Also, not forgetting the great crowd for the in-store performance for Record Store Day/Small Business Saturday at Easy Street Records. Thanks everyone.

Here’s some shots from the action. Click to enlarge (credit given to photographers in URLs).
