the road by Cormac MacCarthy—i really liked it. easy reading. very hello, voyager.

hi everyone, i have bits of news.

for now let me try to set this straight….these two show dates have been switched and miss-printed dozens of times on the internets. i know some people are gonna end up at the cake shop or death by audio tomorrow and that sucks but we’ll see you saturday, we hope.

here’s the real poop:

we play at 10:15 tonite…friday nite in brooklyn:

Friday April 18th @ MARKET HOTEL

high places and ecstatic sunshine are playing. it will be fun.

we play at 10:15
1142 Myrtle @ Bdwy | Bushwick, Brooklyn
JMZ-Myrtle, L-Jefferson, G-Myrtle/Willoughby | 9:30pm | $8 | all ages

then: Saturday April 19th @ Cake Shop all ages

—1512 Ludlow St. NYC

with Air Waves and The Minetta

don’t know what time but we’re last.

the wfmu performance on sunday is canceled.

after new york we’re off to england and europe playing with some great bands including melt banana and boris and well, hell….16 bitch pile up!

here’s what i have up until we enter italy—more dates coming in the next few days. then we come back through north america starting june 7 in montreal at the suoni festival and ending in LA somewhere around july 5. then we take more than a month off and tour the us 1 more time this year, including 2 weeks with xiu xiu starting august 14…..

EVANGELISTA the band(s) with tara and me:

dominic cramp (oakland) is the keyboard player for evangelista. he’s fantastic and plays like a dervish stuck in a honey pot. he gives me snacks i take. he does Modular Set Gigante Sound and Arthur Dent. plus he is Qulfus. He is one half of Vulcanus 68.

andrea serrapiglio (alessandria, italy) is the cellist. he seems to like us. i am really still in shock that we found someone as magical as him. he is a beautiful sound. he plays the cello like butter and crushed glass. he loves electronics and makes peddles, bends circuits, is bent. he’s played with many great improvisers and i suggest you visit his myspace page to read about some of the musics he does.

on our whole north american tour—march 11 through tomorrow at the cake shop the drummer has been adam baz. he’s a young whip, fantastic player. special friend. incredible visual artist. skater. he was in night wounds and is in ghost to falko and plays around in portland with lots of stuff.

starting in austin march 14 and going on through los angeles march 20, jeremy drake was the guitarist and he will join us again for our UK dates. it was the first time Evangelista had another guitarist on tour besides me and it was SO GREAT to play with jeremy, who i think the goddamn world of. he’s played with elani mandell to nels to jessica catron of the night porter and much improvised musics—-a special person to LA’s music and ecologic conditions.

Ava Mendoza (oakland) joined us after jeremy and has been with us ever since. you will hear her play tonite if you come down to the market hotel. she is one of the best guitarists i’ve ever heard and it’s crazy that we finally get to play together. she’s in mute socialite and caroliner rainbow and … tomorrow at the cake shop is our last show with her and adam for a while which is sad because the band is BURNING right now.

we are telling you with happiness that we have a north american booking agent for all shows starting june 13 when we will be back in new york playing! they are The Free Agency and are doing things fresh. we love them.

i’m obsessed with this song.
i hear it in my head all the time. the production is so good it has permanently blown the top off of ridin dirty AND EVEN hood boy. i love when all the back up singers yell "reeboks with the straps" in perfect 4 part harmony (so gay) and never has the word "ay!" ever been so infectious. but WHY is this the unsexiest video ever made? where is shawty? i know she’s not any of these post flashdance pro dance skinny bottom vente lo fat frappacino babes. where is the real shawty with the apple bottom jeans boots with the fur baggy sweat pants and the reeboks with the straps?? wait…. baggy sweat pants? wait, this whole thing is suspiciously queer… maybe they’re bangin for jesus. whatever. the production is really hot.

on the website there are now more than 50 songs available for download, many unreleased.

also, is coming together. please check in for songs and news.
