Stuff From the Road.... (February Tour '13 Recap)

Hello everybody and welcome to another exciting adventure of BRICK MOWER tour travels.  Yes, yet another chapter in unwashed jeans and belly aches; yellowing teeth and cheap beer; pulled muscles and the process of loading-out!    Isn't it grand?

Well... yes.  The answer is a resounding YES!  The fucking people have spoken, and it is quite grand.

But first, 2 things.  Don Giovanni Records website is now new, updated, and eye popping. There's also a new TOUR DATES page with much better updated show info on what's going down.  Sometimes, things get fuzzy with updating the shows on the side of this blog, BUT they will be there also.

AND speaking of TOUR DATES, we're currently booking our full US tour for May and June.  That includes you Cali-pho-ni-yay, and yes... Montana!

Enough of the ramblage.... (hey Descendents, you can pay me for that song title).    We are back from our tour yet again and still readjusting our eyes after our all-night drive back from the mid-west.

Here's some stuff we saw along the way in the US of A (hey, Theodore Geisel, you can pay me for that book title... oh damn, RIP).

Don Giovanni Records Showcase/Southern Tour/AND MORE

Welcome to February.  This month sucks.  Case in point, 2 out of 3 brick mowerians were born in this month.  Just kidding.  Well, no it is a fact about the births, but not about the suckiness.    Also, fun fact, spell-check is telling me I'm trying to, in fact, write "sulkiness."   I am not!

SO, tomorrow night we kick off some string of shows at Brooklyn NY's Death by Audio for Night 1 of the Don Giovanni Records showcase.   Tomorrow's line-up is awesome!    Plastic Cross, House Boat, California X, and Nuclear Santa Claust.  By the way, Nuclear Santa Claust is putting out their new LP Order of the New Age, at the show.

Also, it's a little overdue at this time, but we'd like to publicly internet thank Full of Fancy for asking us to play their reunion show with them at the Warehouse Motorclub.  It was a Sandy Benefit and thankfully people braved the poorly timed NJ snow strom (4 pm to 7:30 pm) and came out anyway, even to just catch Full of Fancy in action.    A great time was had by all, and it was freezing.  Still can't feel my toes.  I should call a doctor.

AND, we are leaving for tour this Saturday.  Well, I guess Sunday now.
