URGENT - Tonight in Quebec City moved to a bar, 310 Rue De la Couronne (8PM). And yes, we are still playing Catacombes tomorrow. And we'll have a new batch of tapes for both.
We've been in Montreal since Sunday. Our van Crystal took a shit and died outside Ottawa almost a week ago now, after the angry spirit of a bird we killed started roaming somewhere under the hood. Friends helped us get from there to the Sherbrooke and Friendship Cove shows, and we cut our losses, stayed here and wrote songs all week so as to rejoin forces with Vicious Cycle tonight and tomorrow. Sorry to everyone further east about those few shows we missed. Acts of God, you know? In a related story, we'll be playing a shit-ton of shows coming up to try and make back the epic van repair bill, so stay tuned for the whole list and details.
(see Comments for the whole story)
EPILOGUE - Would you even believe me if I told you it got a lot more complicated after that? Doesn't matter. These things are trifles. We got to QC and it fucking ruled. We are currently in the loving arms of Dan Omegas and JTA, eating probably the best burritos ever invented. But Crystal may be dead. And you know, good riddance. We're renting a van to get home, and may have to torch Crystal while passing through. In a related story, anyone in the Ottawa area want a free van? Needs a little TLC? Huh? Little TLC? Hey? Just a little? Hah? OK, last show with VC coming up right now. The Bovine show is official, Tuesday September 8. No cover. No inhibitions. No age limit. Do it.
