I saw RJA play a venue in Ft.Lauderdale that has a cap of 999, and they barely got 150 in their, but props to them for continuing on. And hopefully this gets Sparks the Rescue some more exposure.
I think a lot of it is because their singer is a douche bag. I saw them in 2008 in Germany and all he did was list cities in the US he hates playing because "they don't draw". He was like "screw those kids". And now four years later, they went from headlining warped to barely filling venues. Karma.
