We’re gonna give ‘em one hell of a show! Had supper with some Doejo folks last night, and man, I have a feeling today’s gonna be ONE HELL OF A DAY. Good people! Even Rothschild, that Buffalo brawler.

CHICAGO, WE’VE BEEN WAITING TO UNLEASH THIS ONE: We made a poster for you! Everything we’ve ever loved about the Windy City! There’s a lot, so we packed a Sears Tower of gems in there. You need one. Good for that Wicker Park flat. Or that South Side art loft. Or that Wacker Drive cab garage. Or for the halfway house you’ve been stay at. Or for Jeff Tweedy’s garage wall. Or Sam Prekop’s painting studio? Yeah, there too. You make the call. Get one. These bastards are gonna go fast as fuck. Seriously.

We are in Chicago for the weekend, from Sarnia, Ontario. We just discovered this was happening tonight and would love to take part. If there is any cancellations or you can squeeze in 3 more people, it would be great! Please shoot us an e-mail if it could work, thanks!

I just heard the most amazing presentation from Aaron Draplin! What was it about? Shit I don’t know. What I learned… You only live once, do what you love, and hell if you hit a star headed for the moon… That’s still better than the shit you’re doing now. I am going for it!

Thanks Aaron!
