We are coming to you San Sebastian

posted by JV | October 16 2009

We've just booked a hotel in San Sebastian, ES for our upcoming (and sorely needed) day off. The tour has been really wonderful. Zagreb was a revelation (bands, if there's any way to route through there I would definitely do it), and Munich, where we're presently sitting backstage at the Atomic Cafe, is rainy and cold as fucking hell, but this place is one of my favorite cities in the world so I don't really mind. I've been tearing it up with my Leica out there, I've probably shot 6 or 7 rolls so far, a lot of Neopan 1600 and Fuji slide film.

I'm posting photos on my Tumblr page and I'll do some here as well. Much love to all of you, I've never felt luckier to play music.

NPR: Tiny Desk Concert

I remember thinking Forest Knolls would be impossible to play without the onslaught of distorted electric guitars, but in the offices of NPR at midday, it just felt right to play it way down. Enjoy.

We are currently touring Europe!

We are coming to Los Angeles

posted by JV | August 24 2009

I can't wait to get out of this fog-drenched hole (jk, SF). Seriously we are ready for your taco trucks and your loving hospitality and your wild nights. I am a sucker for you Los Angeles, that is true. We'll be at Origami Vinyl on Tuesday and Vacation Vinyl on Wednesday, both at 7pm! We, like you, hate CDs so we thought we'd take a stand. Ha. Also we'll be on KCRW Tuesday morning at 11:15 PST playing a live set. All this shit is free so we better see you there!!!!
