Always on the Watch

Not really sure how to describe the awesomeness of last nights show... First, it was the single best live performance we have done to date. Second, San Diego was one of the most strangely beautiful places I've ever been. Third, the people and the area are packed with a serious rough spun creativity that is pretty friggin' incredible!

Brendan, Drew, John & Brent outdid themselves with the music this time. Every live performance is improvised (except for the theme song of course!) and for some reason last night they really came together as a band and pushed what they were doing to a whole new level! Of course, we wouldn't have sounded as wonderful if it wasn't for Davey Tiltwheel and his amazing soundman skills!

The sort of intense punk scene that rumbles throughout San Diego (and which Davey was seriously able to capture in his sound mixing) really supported the quality of what we do and the accepting, excited audience produced such a serious energy that I can't even describe it. It was pretty wonderful to be in a place with people who understand the feel of the film (and who are also doing equally as amazing, near like-minded stuff- like O, and Tristan, and Low Volts, and John, and even the Navytown tattoo parlor packed streets)! Not to mention the fact that the town is nestled on the Pacific Ocean with all kinds of canyons, and cacti, and beaches, and hummingbirds all floating around in this beautiful, unexpected way. Man, loved this town! And our show! I loved it so much I'm gonna do another post about it! Later when some pics come in! And when I am not falling asleep at the keyboard..zzzzzzz...!
