Will, Eric- turn in your badges...

Thanks to everyone who came out last night. That very well may have been our greatest show ever. Magical things happened. First off, Mark's introduction over the demo song on Will's keyboard was truly a thing of beauty and wonder. The horrific porno music was almost as ghastly as Mark's chesthair and cowboy boots. The fact that we were able to pull of about 2 sets (we only had to do ONE song twice) was miraculous. And our rendition of 99 red balloons was so shockingly not a train wreck, we actually kept laughing in disbelief as we played it.

Best of all, it was graduation for Will and Eric and their whole damn families were there to get down with us. It was kinda like the end of Goonies when the parents reunite with the kids on the beach and you kinda see where the Goonies get it from. When Dr. Tal jumped up and started dancing like a madman right along side Eric, I was like "ooooh I get it now."
Then in our last song, "The Greatest Story Ever Told," Will brought out his mom (without warning her at all) to join us on keyboards. In a totally Back to the Future moment Will said something like "This is the blues riff in B, watch me for the changes, and try and keep up," to his mom. She calmly sat behind the keyboard and proceeded TO WAIL LIKE NOTHING ELSE I'VE SEEN BEFORE.

It was a magical night. A great way to end a truly unbelievable year for this band. Godspeed Eric and Will, may you always keep a badge in your heart and a gun in your holster.

Hey, so I think we're playing our latest farewell forever performance this SATURDAY JUNE 18th 10pm at the 1800 Club in Evanston. Sadly, our famed keytarist isn't gonna be there (unless he decides to stop being such a Cosby kid* and actually show up for our final gig ever).

Eitherway, like we always do, we'll figure something out and rock the pants off/skirts up everyone there. SO BRING EVERYONE YOU KNOW. This is your last time to see the greatest out of control locomotive on the verge of a catastrophic crash thrill the hearts and minds of americans. Hope to see y'alls there. It's a bar, so feel free to relax and buy liquor from da man while you're there.

*listless and without true direction in life.

Sorry for the short notice, true believers, but tonight's the grand premiere of our video, "Searching High" at the Studio 22 Premiere at the Ryan Family Auditiorium on campus at NU. I think everything starts around 7pm. There gonna be like 10 short films and our video shown, so if you can spare 10 bucks, find a ticket, and sit in one place for a long time, YOU MUST COME!
You'll see our heads projected bigger than they've ever been, and tonight our music will be heard by more people than every gig we've ever played combined. We're talking goosebumps/retrospective depression baby. There are also rumors that Lil Gino may make an appearance. 'Nuff said.
