The Post Script

Monday, August 31, 2009


Yo dudes,

Weeeeeellllllllll, we are back at home from the tour Matt is back at work, Abe and Andy are back at school, and I am here at home working on booking, writing this thing, and being unemployed! YAY for unemployment!! You know you always say you wish you didn't have a job until you don't have a job and are just sitting in your house all day, that's why things like Blogging become popular, people (like me) with to much time on their hands. SO I don't know about the other guys, but I am finally getting used to being home and not on the road. . .which means that I'm ready to be back on the road! HAHA! Oh man, the irony of it all! When you're out you can't wait to get home and back in your own bed, then when you are finally back home, you get restless and start working towards getting back out on the road! Oh well, we signed up for this. . .

A little good (hope so anyway) news. I talked to Eric, (Our Producer), a little while ago and he said he would have the next 2 weeks, this was about a week ago, to focus on our album and get it mixed and ready for us to critique! that means it will be ready for mastering, then duplication!! Once we get that done, you can all finally see what we have been working on for the last year. . .we hope you appreciate how much it will mean to us to finally have the finished product in our hands, and be able to put it in yours! after all this time it will hardly seem real. The only thing that could mess up the dream at that point would be if we got our first thousand copies in and had miss spelled our band name or something on the front of it! That would just figure right? Don't worry though, I think we can handle it. At this point we can handle just about anything that comes our way, as long as it means FINALLY getting this album done.

So anyway, it's good to be home and to get to see all of our friends and family again, we love you all, we just can not wait to get this album done, and then to be able to get back out on the road with a product in our hands so we can actually start to spread our music around and get some money to make T-shirts, and other cool stuff. So wish us luck, hopefully we can have this thing done in less than a month!

~Peace, Love, and Good Vibrations~

The end of the tour!

Hey dudes and dudets,

So, what a time we have all had in the last few weeks. . .what a time. The south potion of the tour went VERY well, we got a lot of people on our mailing list, sold a ton of merch, had successful shows pretty much the entire time, and had no car/trailor problems. . .the second half. . .well, let me go ahead and recap. . .

So we start of with a fun show in Cincinatti, OH where we play well, but, I am suffering from food poisoning, but my motto is everything that starts of bad, ends up good, so I was in decent spirits. At the end of our first show, some asshole from the band after us yells at us to hurry and get our stuff off of the stage, so his band can get on stage and proceed to do awful punk versions of 2-Pac songs, sorry guys, I bet the audience just couldn't wait to hear 2-Pac die again! Poor guy was probably rolling over in his grave, but maybe I'm being harsh, they obviously have a reason to rebel, God made them idiots, so they will show the world with their Hip Hop Punk just how angry they are at their short commings!! Take THAT society!

Anyway, next we head to Rochester, NY where we have a really fun acoustic set and get a great place to stay complements of Andy's friend Jen, THANKS JEN!! :-) We also meet up with Mike Lombardo, get some good chicken wings, have some laughs, and so on. It was a good night, things were going well so far. . .then we get to New Jersey.

The Wyndham Hotel in Newark, New Jersey is where the shit goes down. If you're ever in town, do yourself a favor and choose another hotel, the people here have no trouble charging you full for your room after you lose thousands of dollars worth of equipment and have your trailer and Van Vandalized, thanks for the stay guys! (On a side note, I am pretty sure Satan was born in Newark, like 95% sure.) So at this point, we are still able to pull ourselves together and play 2 successful nights at Kenny's Castaways, which is a great club, read the preceeding blog to get a full rundown on the events of those nights, the first night was not one of MY better nights, but Matt and Brian met John Popper from Blues Traveler, so that was cool. . .I just ended stumbling through a couple covers I didn't know with the band that played after us. HA! It was hilarious, but also pretty embarassing I must admit.

Next show in Lewiston, NY gets cancelled because we have to deal with the incompetent staff at the Wyndham and try to squeeze some amount of compensation out of them since their "security" (I say that lightly) staff screwed up and didn't happen to see people carrying away tons of equipment from our van, BANG UP JOB ASSHOLES! :-) So, we spend that day driving to Alfred where we are treated to a great dinner, and amazing hotel accomodtions courtesy of our good friends Mike and Michelle Green, the owners of The Hott Spot! Which is a new tanning salon in Alfred that is pretty cool actually, I don't frequent tanning salons, but, it seems like a cool place. The show wass awesome and hilarious at the same time, we had an outside show with a dance floor of sorts right in front of the stage where a bunch of painfully underage kids, and adults were getting drunk off their asses and dancing and giving us more entertainment then we were giving them! Oh what a show, we got rid of a bunch of merch, met a lot of cool people, and. . .in all honesty it ended up being the only redeeming night of the entire second half of the tour.

Flash forward to Cleveland Ohio, later on the next day. Andy and Matt have been complaining that they have to pee for nearly 2 hours, so, even though we have plenty of gass to drive a hundrerd more miles or so, we stop. During refilling the tank, Abe just happens to walk back to the trailor and to all of our dismay looks down and sees that the A-beam of the trailor has rusted through and snapped, literally about 50 miles more and we would have caused a pile up due to our trailor flying loose from the back of the van. . .so thank god andy and matt almost pissed their pants, or we very well may have been dead and that would have just topped off the second half of this tour. Thanks to Andy's dad for making the 4 hour drive to come help us bring our equipment back home, and oh did it ever suck, but we had our revenge on Traylurch anyway!

We DESTROYED that thing, with the condition it was in, there was no way we were going to be able to get it home, so we decided abandoning it was the best course of action, but not only did we abandon it, we took 2x4's to it and destroyed the walls of it, and Abe, Brian, Konner and i all covered it in Urine and threw the bearing grease all over it, sorry to whoever's gas station we left this thing at, but uhhhhhh, yea, at that point we had to destroy something, and you were just unfortunate enough to have our trailor break down when we stopped at your station, Hope you guys can end up getting more use out of that piece of crap then we did at least!! Bye bye Traylurch, you were a horrid trailor and we won't miss you.

So what do we learn from this friends, never leave your gear alone in Newark, Never expect hotels to have souls, and if you have a problem, (Like a broken Trailor), piss all over it and leave it for the good folks in Cleveland, OH to deal with! At least we still have a show today in Nashville, that should raise our spirits. HA! Ohwell, live and learn right? We can only hope next time we are a bit more prepared.

~Peace, Love, and Good Vibrations~

Hucklebucking Bamboozle

Hi Guys,

Sorry it has taken me a few days to post a new Blog, but, if you are close to us, then you already know why. We got straight HUCKLEBUCKED at our stay at the Wyndham hotel in Newark, but, our friend Mr. Mike Green is back to take us out to dinner so I am going to get a shower and Abe is going to tell you of the last few days events! later guys!

Well... everything started off great in Newark. Then as we awoke at the crack of noon on our day off, we made a venture out to check on our trailer and low and behold... it was cracked into and our equipment had been sorted through. The thieves went for the perfect blend of value and portablility. They took our power amps, mixer, and monitors. Basically all of the expensive stuff that could be easily carried to their getaway car on the highway. Much to our disappointment, the hotel was far less than helpful in our attempt to get any means of investigation started. BUMMER.

On the bright side... New Yorkers dig The Post Script! Our two nights at Kenney's Castaways were amazing! We met a lot of cool people, made some new friends, and had some great food! Blain had a really fun experience the first night we played at Kenny's! The band that played after us, Jason's Jam band, asked Blain to come up on stage and sit in on a couple songs he didn't know! HAHA! Needless to say, he fumbled through the songs, but came off the stage a little red in the face! But we had a fun time foooooooooooor sure. The second night we played, Matt's uncles John and Pat came out to see us! It was great to see another familiar face in an unfamiliar place! So thanks guys, and thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed seeing the show!

So, anyway, we will have come back from this tour with some great shows under our belts, the last of which will go on later today courtesy of our new friends Mike and Michelle Green, some really fun walks through New York, New Orleans, Nashville, and so on, but without a PA. . .so that justs means everyone needs to buy 2 copies of the CD instead of one so we can afford to replace everything!! :-D well, once we finally get this damn thing out anyway. lol Anyway, thankyou guys so much for reading, and for your constant support!

~Peace, Love, and Good Vibrations~

New York

Hey guys!!

So we had a great first couple of days over here in New York. The first show we played was an acoustic show at Boulder House Coffee in Rochester, NY, where we met up with our friend Mike Lombardo and got a place to stay from Andy's friend Jenna Owens. Thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much Jenna, You really saved our lives that night by giving us a place to stay. HA! we had a great time. . .but never did get to have a Garbage plate, not that we regret that one. There is definitely some interesting food over here! lol! So the show went really well too, not a huge crowd, but I feel like we played well and we got some video of an acoustic show for the DVD.

The next night, yesterday, we played at Kenny's Castaways. We played really good show that night, great venue, great sound, met some new friends, and actually re-met some guys from the band FEFF who we played with in Gainesville! What a great time, both bands that played with us that night, well the first guy who played was an acoustic solo act named Steven Mars. The next band as great too, they had me come up and sit in on bass, but unfortunately. . .they had me play a couple songs I didn't know soooooooooooooooooooo, I found it quite laughable! lol it's pretty embarassing to be put on the spot like that, so I found out! HAHA! The couple drinks I had didn't really help the situation either! lol Oh well, 1 more night to show them what I've got!

After the show we all went walking around New York, Matt and Brian met the harmonica player/lead singer of Blues Traveler! His name is John Popper and he gave Matt some great advice, "Don't take advice from anyone, because no one is in your shoes." Wise words. . .or maybe just a cheap cop out for lack of good advice to give, YOU DECIDE. I however ended up getting propositioned for sex by a homeless woman in Jersey! HA! I couldn't believe how low the going price was. . .*Shivers* So yea, fun fun first night in New York, Let's see how the second night goes!!

2nd leg of the tour (A new Beginning)

Hey guys,

SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONS! Matt would like to say hello to everyone and tell them that he is having quite the time on our HUGE WORLD WIDE TOUR! (That we haven't told you we're on) okay, so. . .our tour of the midwest, South, and the East coast, but that is just as cool as an amazing bad ass orld tour right. . ? Yea. . .okay, next subject!

So thanks to everyone who came out to see us while we were coming back through home! We had a couple great shows and got to see everyone we love and miss! I also got to have my 21st birthday at home with my family which was awesome! I got a bit toooooooo much on my 21st though, which was unfortunate, if you want to hear stories, don't ask me, I don't remember them! HAHA! but yea, those times are over, we are back on the road and just got done with our first in cinncinati, OH. It was a really fun show for sure, but the band that played after us was pretty shitty when we went over our time, even though it was only for about 3 or 4 minutes over! HA! sorry guys, we just love to play our music. The bar tenders were really cool guys though, they also made some pretty good Cheeseburgers! We would also like to welcome our friend Conner to the second half of the tour, he will be taking lots of pictures and filming all of our fun adventures and such so keep an eye out for that!

ANYWAY, we are staying in a hotel tonight, in Ohio, and will be on our way to New York tomorrow, so wish us luck on that trip, and I will keep you updated on how everything goes. Talk to you guys soon!

~Peace, Love, and Good Vibrations~

Bye Bye Alabama!

Sup everybody,

Blain here again with another update from the road! Hope everyone has been having a good last couple days, I know we have! They have been pretty intense to say the least. We had a show both days, which I will get to in a few minutes, but first thing is first, We finally got a day at the beach, the good news, we weren't the most pastey guys out there! There were some people you couldn't even look at with out going Blind. . .the bad news, none of us got sunscreen so we left a lot redder than we cam, which yes, hurts like HELL when you where a bass on your shoulders for 4 hours afterwards! I thought I was going to cry at the show that night, and now I have all this nasty peeling on my shoulder where my strap was and god, it's bad. But, before I start to tell you about things you don't want to hear, I will stop. :)

The first of the shows after New Orleans (BEST TOWN EVER!!) was our second night at The Hangout. This was most definitely a make or break gig for us. Since we came to the table with all originals the first time we had 2 days and we packed learning 12 covers into 2 days! SOMEHOW, big somehow, We have no Idea how we did it, (We must not suck as much as we thought!) We actually did some cool songs, We did What I got, by Sublime, Fortunate Son, by CCR, Why Dont we do it in the Road, by The Beatles, Hard to Handle, The Black Crowes Version, and Semi Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind, just to name a few. Hopefully we can remember them well enough to come home and play them for you guys and not suck! lol So we ended up blowing the roof off of the place, We saw some friends from back home AGAIN! a lot of people from Indiana must come down to Gulf Shores a lot. lol I also saw some good friends of mine from down there in Foley, it was cool to them again for sure. We ended the show with an invite to come back for a music festival from the owner and sold a ton of Merch thanks to Alec and Brian pushing stuff like crazy. They really are a lot more useful than they look! :)

The next night we played at Hopjacks in Pensacola, which, as you know if you have been reading my blog posts, means 1 thing. . . STEAK PIZZA!! We had a second night of the best pizza in the world, and another roof blown three stories higher. We learned that Hopjacks is trying to turn into a national chain now, so look for a Hopjacks coming near you! We were all talking about how amazing it would be to travel the Hopjacks circuit and go through a ton of states playing at Hopjacks and eating that pizza every day!!!! OMG, we could come back really fat thats for sure. hahaha! We also learned from the manager there that they are turning the building newt door into a venue for national touring bands, it will seat about 5000 people and they said they would love to get us in as an openner! See guys, these are the reasons we go on these little trips we call tours. We meet great, nice, and helpful people, get to show our music to hundreds of people who would never get to hear it otherwise, and get lots of good food and drink! :) It may be a lot of work, but it sure beats a day job! HA! Well, wish us luck tonight in Nashville, I will be back soon to tell you how it all went.

~peace, love, and good vibrations~

hey guys!

Blain here, hope everyone is doing as awesome as I am right now! (Not even to speak of the rest of us.) We are on ouor way home for New Orleans. . .wow, what a town! It was the first time we were able to get some BAD ASS cajun food, and the first time we have been able to walk around that amazing town! The architecture is out of this world, the art is amazing, there is a new band to be seen at EVERY bar you walk by/ It a town that is amazing enough to have an entire Dave Matthews album written about it, and may end up having a Post Script album written about it as well.

We got a crazy suprise upon our arrival as well! Our good friend Rob Coleman from Red Moon (an awesome band, check them out). and his girlfriend had flown down to New Orleans to go on vacation and come see us play! Needless to say, it was a very pleasant surprise to see a familiar face in such an unfamiliar town. Unfortunately Traffic was so bad in Gulf Shores duee to everyone leaving for home that we were held back and unable to make our in-store show at the Louisiana Music Factory, BUT! We did end up walking around in there and checking out their selection of bad ass local New Orleans Music. (Best Jazz Selection EVERY!!)

Rob and his girlfriend were also nice enough to show us around town and take us to an AMAZING retaurant that's name escapes me, but the food was OUT OF THIS WORLD! Alligator sausage, Jumbalya, Gumbo, all the Cajun food you could ever hope for or want. Not only that, but, the nostalgia of visiting and playing in the Birth place of Jazz was again was overwhelming! Plus, a friend of ours named Jeff, from the last time we came down here showed up at the bar sporting a sexy ass Post Script shirt! Kudos to Jeff for his good fashion sense! HA!

So over all, today was a great day! We had a few drinks with some old New Orleans friends, a couple unexpected friends from back home, Andy got a couple cool Latin CD's and a Conga lesson from Rob, and we played a really good show at The Banks Street Bar. (Even though we missed out on our in-store at the Louisiana music Factory.) We definitely played better at this show then at any show prior. Things are going well, and we can only hope that they will continue to get better! Anyway, Have a Great day everyone, I will keep you posted on all our upcoming adventures and so forth! Make sure to tell your friends and family to sign up and follow this blog, and us along our adventures in the south and on the East Coast! Talk to you all soon!

~Peace, Love, and Good Vibrations~

B-man here again,

So, just got done with the 4th show into the tour, it is nearly 4 in the morning and we are going to wake up in a few short hours and be on our way New Orleans!! Things are still going really well! Tonight was by far our best show playing wise, I think we will all agree on that, and we got some tastey ass Hop Jacks pizza with steak on it. . .ooooooooooooh ya. I have been having dreams about that pizza ever since we played at the Hop Jacks in Pennsacola last March, and it was everything i had hoped for. :-)

So by now we are all gettin really into our games of Catch Phrase on the rides to our shows and stuff. It is amazing how addictive that game can be! hahaha! We have all gotten pretty damn good at it too. . .except Matt, he seems to just be generally awful at describing things. Ha! sorry Matty, sad but true. hahaha! Tomorrow will be our first long drive to a show though, so he will have plenty more time to practice, as will we all!

So a recap of the last couple shows, The Hangout was fun and we got coupons for 80 dollars of free food which we used earlier on today. . .sooooooooo good, if you're ever in Gulf Shores, get a cheeseburger at the hangout, its 9 dollars, but, it is probably the best cheeseburger you will ever have. We did walk away from that show with the realization that we need to learn some covers though. Believe it or not, people in Gulf Shores and these other places have never heard of us! I know! I didn't see it coming either! So, they want to hear some songs they know and can sing along with. . .gosh, guess you have to give the people what they want huh? oh the entertainment biz, what a hard job. ha! So, needless to say we have spent the last couple days before shows learning and practicing some cover tunes we will try out this monday. Wish us luck, we will also bring some of them home to show our friends and family back up in Indiana if you are really nice and say please! okay you don't have to say please, but geeze guys learn some manners!

The next show was at The Office Lounge, a small bar right across the street from where we are staying. We played half acoustic, half electric and it was a blast really, we met some cool people and they enjoyed a good show, made our money and went home. Not too eventful of a night, especially when compared to tonight!! Mobile is a cuhrazy town! The was a trio playing outside of hopjacks with a Saxophone player, Tuba player, and a drummer, and they were tiiiiiiiight! We watched them during set breaks and they did some instrumental michael Jackson stuff! Everyone was out sporting Phat Rides and 20 inch rims, and we saw a dude hit on a transvestite without realizing it and freak out HARDCORE when he realized it was a he/she! One of the funniest things that has ever happened! lol!

The show was really cool too, we played up on the 10 foot high balcony above all the people eating! the annoying part was ALL of our equipment up the narrow stairs ( did anyone catch that reference? :)) to the balcony, the were spiral stairs too which made it even worse! ugh, the things we have to do for music and money! lol But yeah, what a fun night, and a fun last few days, just a few more ahead of us and we will be back home to entertain our close friends in Indiana, then of to New York!! Can't wait to see you guys! I am going to bed! I gots to get a bit o' sleep before the drive to "Norlins tomorruh."

~Peace, Love, and Good Vibrations~

First Show, first day, First Long ass drive

Hey Guys,

So the trip has begun! It started well, Matt has already cut his finger, Brian somehow managed to cut himself getting out of the Van, and Alec, a good friend of mine who has come along to give us another helping hand on the trip, has a toe that is snapped in half, while andy, Abe, and myself are still unharmed. . .(knocks on wood)! Things are already looking up for us Post Script boys on this little tour of ours and we can only hope that they continue to get better and better as the days and miles continue to fall behind us.

The trip down here was really uneventful, save my phones mysterious disappearance, reappearance, and a couple really intense games of Catch Phrase, which Andy and Abe are apparently masters of, and seem to think the game should be an Olympic event. Ha! But, I was keeping score so. . .my team won! :-) (Don't ask the other guys they might not agree)

We ended up getting into the hotel at almost 7 o'clock yesterday, August 5th, and after 16 hours of driving and only having sandwiches to eat, Minus having gotten subway all the way back up in Indiana, the free (FREE) breakfast they had available here was AMAZING! Abe just kind of made a sandwich and passed out, (Pansie ha!), but the rest of us took advantage of the waffle irons and muffins and stuffed ourselves with Belgian waffles and other healthy snacks! haha! It was amazing needless to say. Then I freaking passed out because, unfortunately, I too am a Pansy. . .:(

We met a very interesting Maintenance guy at our hotel. He told us that most people in Gainesville have AIDS. . .no sex for us in Gainesville. . .:( He also drove Brian and Matt to get Beers, and told us about Nude Beaches on the East coast of Florida, and when Matt locked the key to our room in our room, he let us back in. Does anyone know if there really are squirrels the size of house cats in Florida? that seems pretty cuhrazy to me/ I didn't see any, but I have only been in Gainesville so far.

Anyway, We got a DVD recording of our first show last night too! Which was really fun dispite the extremely small crowd and the fact that we were VERY much out of our element. I felt like I was back in my old Death Metal Days with the bands we were playing with. I liked them! HA! The guys at The Back Stage Lounge were really cool, as well as the guys in the other bands! Juat because you are in a Metal band doesn't mean you're a jerk you know!? Thanks for the fun times guys! We hope to see our new friends from FEFF in New York when we make our way over there!

Anyway, I will be writing more in the days to come, so stay tuned guys! I will RETURN!! Hope you enjoy reading!

~Peace, Love, and Good Vibrations~
