If you like this stuff (and you should), check out Jim Heffernan from Brooklyn ( http://www.youtube.com/jimheffernanmusic ). He was in Spark Lights The Friction, Rejouissance, Bad Cops, Sandworms and many other rad punk bands.
I hate waiting for dates! Haha atleast when they put them up when the tours announced you can say hey I can't go, it sucks but you know right then and there. This waiting game makes you think about how awesome the show can be and then when you see your city gets skipped it crushes you haha. I'm on the east coast though so...fingers crossed.
