    Hey, all. My band Royal Monsters is about to hit the road for a few days. Would love to see any WC people there!

    Oh! And AJJ are incredible, to say the least.

    Here's the cheesy poster I made for it.

    Jinkies!

    Andrew Jackson Jihad are great. Alas, locations. Your band sounds pretty good too :)

    I've seen AJJ twice and they've been amazing both times. First time was in San Antonio with far too many people crammed into a bar and the band looked noticeably concerned for their own safety. Second time was in London and some guy tried to fight me because I was dancing.

    Man, one of my goals in life is being in the same continent as Andrew Jackson Jihad so I might be able to attend one of their shows.

    AJJ are, in fact, super-incredible. I only wish you lot were coming a little closer to Boston... Best of luck on the tour!

    @allana, @SilentObjector - Thanks for the well-wishes!

    @everyone - AJJ are, indeed, super good. I've been fortunate enough to have them be a "local band" for years, but I've enjoyed them every time I've seen them, even when it's just Sean and his acoustic.

    I still owe AJJ two bucks from a sort of impromptu show they played in a park in my town a few years ago (I only had three on me and I wanted to buy their CD (which was five bucks) and they said no worries). I'm not going to the Troubadour to give it to them, though.

    David - I'll give them the two bucks and say it was from you. :)

    Do you have something against the Troubadour? I've never been there. Not trying to egg you on or anything, I just like a good story if there is one.
  5.  (9227.10)
    But then I'll owe YOU two bucks!

    It's not the Troubadour specifically. I'm just not a fan of that stretch of Santa Monica Blvd (nightmarish parking, which is pretty much par for the course in L.A., and too close to Beverly Hills for my taste). If you were playing the El Rey or The Smell I'd probably be there (though if you were playing The Smell you'd probably be looking at a tenth of what you'll probably be getting from the Troubadour. It just has the benefit of being half a block from The Edison, so I could get some drinks there afterwards).

    I wish we were playing The Smell. I've not been there yet.

    Regarding the two bucks, I did the same thing to a band some years ago and have never paid them, so it would sort of be karma.

    Matinee show at 924 Gilman in Berkeley in about 24 hours!

    Alastair - Thanks a bunch! It's been an amazing time, so far. We're really lucky to be touring with such great guys in such a great band.
