I'm slightly shaky because of the caffeine. I'm slightly hungover because of the Anchor Steam. I'm slightly foggy on all the details of these past five Mondays spent playing at Spaceland.

For some reason I think most of us were under the impression August was going to be a little lazy. Looking forward to the thought of finding random movies to watch on Netflix and getting around to exploring the corner bars of Atwater Village. I got as far as Naked Lunch and the bear special at Hugo's...which isn't that far. August shaped up to be a very busy but all around productive 31 days. We have added some music to the final album. We have finalized all the artwork/packaging. Its mixed, its mastered, its stirred, its salted, its sweetened, its splattered.

Five Mondays in the month of August meant a quintuplet of free shows for our residency at the glitter curtain known as Spaceland. So very pleased with how this residency turned out. Humbled that so many great local LA bands decided to join us and thankful for all the people who got involved, whether it be a laptop DJ in the corner or just a fellow blog friend. I am a failure in the realm of photos or videos from this past months shenanigans, but I'm sure I'll be reminded of all them over the next few weeks(as I stare into a destroyed kitchen deconstructed at 3am last night).

Every single one of us appreciate the fact that so many new friends came out each Monday. We are still dipping our toes into the deep end of L.A. and it was overwhelming to get such a welcoming response to what we put way too much time and effort into.

I'm gonna take a nap.

p.s. Every month Spaceland does a little piece of art d'residency on the display board right inside the doorway. This was the one we got....Note the bent frames on the glasses and the PBR in hand.

You guys deserve all that's been coming (and will be coming) your way. Best of luck on your second UK adventure.

I was only able to make it to night one of your residency. And I was amazed by the turn out for that, the crowd is just going to be the norm at your shows in LA from now on. I heard one of the new songs when I saw you at Sunset Junction and I love it. Nothing but greatness from you guys...I swear! I'm looking forward to a full length album, been waiting for it since I first saw you ;)

"Its mixed, its mastered, its stirred, its salted, its sweetened, its splattered." That's my favorite line of the post--that and the opening lines.
