Tour Diary 7/12/2011: Portland OR at Mudai Lounge

Got a sich tour of the YU building from Adam (member of White Rainbow). It looks like great, nirvana-esque thngs are going to happen here. Megazord was there (duh) practicing racket ball. Met Justin from Green and Purple and he blew my mind with his new track called “Gay Bash”. Why isn’t this guy like the most famous artist of our time?!? #rolloverbeethoven

Drank like nine million cups of coffee, c’mon it’s Portland. Ordered a side salad (or was it a small salad?) and chips and beans and rice (highly recommended). Freaked out when the restaurant played “like a pimp” because I guess that’s my song now(?!?!?). #lilflip #davidbanner #2003

Loaded in and then went and ate some fondue fries. #ew After we played some kid said, “play at a warehouse.” What does that even mean!?!? IDGI. White Fang killed it playing their “classic rock” set. CCR would have been proud. I know people are saying that their sound is maturing but I still believe they have that hungry fire. #erikonguitar

Went home and split a fancy beer that Jacob had bought at the Oakland Wholefoods. I fell asleep on a futon while Jacob and Eric Mast talked about art/design.

Tour Diary 7/10/2011: Oakland CA at Lobot Gallery

Drove to Oakland. Dimples rocked the troll first. Kyle climbed up on a giant bail of hay and did a sick guitar solo. It was kinda cray. When is this band going to get signed to Uncle Kracker’s label? Jacob (of Extreme Animals) said Mikey (the drummer for dimples) looked like Max Weinberg (member of Conan O’Brien) and Kyle looked like Bruce (member of The Boss). Luckily they took it as a compliment. Seriously, what would Juiceboxxx think of Dimples? I guess we’ll never know.

High Castle played some serious musical music. T’was cool to see old friend Wilson from San Diego on the bass and the drummer laid down some “drum and bass” style riffs.

Andy/A Magic Whistle played again at this show. He did some hilarious post show banter, explaining how merch is sold – I guess you had to be there. His whistling was really on point that night, check out his mic stand if you ever get a chance to see him play! Kyle Swick played next, his spaced out synth jamz were accompanied with a bleeding wash of graphics.

@funnycookietime was in the house. @Box_eyes did a nice blog post that briefly mentioned our show: http://brokenimagetour2011.blogspot.com/

Stayed at the “venue” because I was too tired to drive anywhere. Thanks so much Lobot Gallery ;) #graywatertoilet
