Upon arriving at Firehouse Pizza in Normal, Illinois, Caleb and Ben started doing yoga. Couldn’t tell ya why, never seen either of em do yoga before.
Our buddy Vince from an awesome pop punk band called Horrible Things played a solo set. There was a 40 year high school reunion going on at Firehouse that night, and Vince gave them a great show.
This guy’s set was pretty amazing. Kyle is in a local band called These Old Ghosts. He’s got some really great songs and and an amazing voice.

Zak, the main man at Firehouse. Always so good to see him.
Little snake bite emergency at the hospital. Serious foot pain for a couple days, but everything is cool now!
Night drivin is the best. On our way to Louisville on July 15th
Mojo Filter. These guys were fucking awesome
Makin out with Cameron
The usual suspects at our Kentucky shows
kinda diggin this pic
We’ve made some really great friends in Kentucky, and after the Lexington show we went back to their spot to stay for the night. Our buddy Gus found a bottle of Amsterdam gin, but I don’t quite remember what happened after that.
We made a friend in Lexington who brings us moonshine to our shows. This time we bought 3 gallons. Should last us til New Orleans if we’re lucky.
From Lexington we went to Louisville. Being the impeccable tour booker that I am, I decided to book us in Louisville on the same night that Wilco, Neko Case, and a bunch of other bands that were part of Forecastle Music Festival. Ironically, we drove past the festival on our way to the venue. Kinda reminds me of one time when we were playing Gainesville at a venue that was across the street from a Plain White Tee’s show. We have a tendency to make up bullshit reasons for why no one is at our Sunday shows.
ALL of those people woulda been at the Itchy show if it wasn’t for Wilco, right?
Louisville kinda looks like Richmond, Va
We did some Laundry. Had to do it 3 times to get the mold off our clothes. It was kinda gross. Lessons learned: never put your wet swimsuit in a plastic bag with a bunch of other clothes and then leave it for 5 days in a hot trailer.
@ The Rudyard Kipling, one of the coolest spots we’ve found in Louisville
The Yugos are kickass
Hangin out with Ashley, bassist for The Debauchees, a cool Singer/Songwriter -ish Punk band. Dunno if that makes sense
