Where Does It End? tours more than we do...

tracking on UPS is great, since it looks like we'll actually have the shipment of lots of new cds, potentially tomorrow, with plenty of time to spare before next Friday (see you at the Whistle Stop!). but at the same time, it kind of makes me feel like a bum. i mean, here it is the end of May, and we Modlins have so far played in 5 states this year: CA, OR, WA, AZ, and NM : but our cds have already been in 4 states, just over the past 15 hours! i guess all i can say is, Where Does It End?

Where Does It End? - CD Release Show

Sunday, May 10, 2009

loudspeaker love

driving back from spending mothers day up in irvine, wolf parade's At Mount Zoomer ended just in time for us to switch over to 91x Loudspeaker and catch them playing "Dragging My Feet". actually, it went more like "wait, why does this song sound familiar? how do i know this song? the singer sounds kind of like Matt, but with more reverb... holy crow, its Dragging My Feet! quick, you text message and i'll keep driving!" and lucky for me, arlene was riding passenger, so that whole previous conversation was only about 80% in my brain, and the other 20% was i(n) r(eal) l(ife). even got a shoutout where the 91x DJ refered to and even talked about our next show, 6/5 at the whistlestop! so the only question is, did we forget to send them a copy of the Monday Morning single? good times!

we're back!

3 shows in 3 cities split between 2 states (neither of which was good ol' California), covering some 1700+ miles in The Hulk / Shrek / Bruce Banner / whatever name you want to give our mini van. and now we are back at home, or, three of us are, as eric had to fly out to somewhere north of Detroit for work this week. so the rest of us can take a bit of time to unwind, and get ready for June 5th! also, we kept track of all the cds we listened to un the trip (i think the grand total was 34?) , and i'm thinking that maybe i'll post the list, and make a contest out of it, where if you (assuming You were not actually in the van the whole way with us) can figure out who picked what cd, i might just give you a copy of Where Does It End? sometime around that June 5th release show. yea! ... though i didn't run that idea past other modlins, so this is assuming it doesn't get vetoed / held back in the bureaucracy.

ooh, and on the last bit of the drive back in to SD, we were able to catch our buddies Rob and Jake of Apes Of Wrath on air with Tim Pyles last night, and may 8th at the casbah looks nice. real nice. and i suppose thats as good a transition as any to wish Mr Pyles a happy bday.

ok back to work.
