So the day we got here, Chris happened to burn up the washing machine on accident. It left a bunch of soot everywhere, and the fortunate side effect is this here cobweb covered in soot. So weird.
This is Federico from Father Murphy having dinner with Brandon. He made us food at our gig in Treviso, booked our Italian tour, let us sleep in his house, let us borrow his amp, gave us too much alcohol, has an uncle that makes the world's best proseco, and is one of the greatest people I have ever met.
Brandon and Andrea from Be Invisible Now.
On Thursday night we played in Anghiari (Tuscany) and ate at an amazing place in San Sepolcro. So incredible. Later that night we stayed in an old church that had been turned into a hostel.
Brandon jammed with these dudes in the practice room next to the room we played in.
This is the main street Anghiari, which is a midevil town. The drive is pretty steep...
We played in Faenza on Saturday at Morena's place, Il Clandestino. Such a badass group of people. We had a great time and I am going back there on the 29th to VJ a big NYE party. Its gonna be cool.
This is the best thing we saw in Bologna.
Well, Merry Christmas. I hope everyone that looks at this thing has a great time today and tomorrow.

One night a few weeks back we had a few people over to Susi's kitchen and we taught them all the BLOOD sign. It was pretty fun.
Nathan in Berlin at West Germany.
This is flying over the Alps on the way from Hamburg to Venice. Man, that shit was so cool.
Nolan put my sunglasses on and Chloe decided she needed to hold him up. Tonight we went to Chloe's dance recital and she was one of the snow flakes. She took it real seriously, and that was great. I have video of her entire performance, but the internet connection here is real bad.
So as you can see, we are currently in Vicenza about to start our tour of Northern Italy. Super excited. Here is the schedule-
Dec 17 - Treviso
Dec 18 - Arezzo
Dec 19 - Cesena (Triple Fuck with Passa!)
Dec 20 - Faenza
Dec 21 - Bologna
Then we are back here in Vicenza for Xmas with Chris, Toni, Chloe and Nolan. Susi is coming to visit as well. Brandon and Susi are leaving for Munich on the 26th and I am going to Venice to hang out with Nathan that day. Then Nathan is coming back with me here for the night on the 27th. I have a gig in Faenza again on the 31st for NYE then head up to Stuttgart (well actually Goepingen and Ulm) to see my aunt and cousin's children. Hopefully I'll update between now and then...

So, I know I have been lacking in my updates. I have had little internet time.
A couple weeks back we played at a performance space here in Hamburg called The Fleet Street. Its a cool place. Nane has been running the projector for us and that's been great.
After we played, we DJed. I spun my down south sex rap set and people went apeshit. People who have never danced before acted like complete idiots and danced around all night. It was a blast.
We played in Lisbon on Friday night. These pics come from there.
