Dirty Mittens: Over the Pass (San Francisco to Home)


After Margie's, the drive today feels like it takes no time at all. Either that or we go through some kind of time warp by the Winchester Mystery House and the drive literally takes no time at all.

Oh San Francisco, oh you city of swells and smells. Everything is on top of it...   More

Album Review: The Red River


Little Songs About The Big Picture (Brave Records)

[SINGER-SONGWRITER, WITH BAND] The Red River was more legend than band when I first heard them—all hushed whispers and home-dubbed cassettes. They were from Long Beach, Calif. Dhani Rosa from Eskimo and Sons said they “taught us everything we know,” and Eskimo and Sons was a band that knew a lot about sendi...   More

Dirty Mittens: Los Angeles, Oh Boy (LA and Palm Springs, CA)


This city is huge. It stretches forever. From the top of this hill, I can see maybe 220 degrees of solid sprawl, and I know behind me is another 140. Stayed with the illustrious Adam Stamp last night, and he lives a block from the bottom of Runyon Canyon park, where supposedly the stars are to b...   More

Dirty Mittens: It IS Possible to get Drunk in Salt Lake City (SLC to Vegas)


If you're ever in Salt Lake City and have a choice between eating at Sage's Cafe or The Other Place (actually the name), go with Sage's. Noah and I have amazing vegetarian sandwiches and locally handcrafted beers while listening to a soundtrack of very palatable inoffensive indie rock.

Dirty Mittens: Asking For the Meat Banana (Pendleton, Ore. to Boise, Id.)


Pendleton is an incredible place. We roll into town after a longer-than-we-thought drive from Spokane, and are immediately greeted with warm hospitality, free drinks and food, and amazing people.

Pizza at Great Pacific is so so so good. For some reason, Paul, Noah and myself deci...   More

Dirty Mittens: Dick's and Twin Peaks (Seattle and Spokane, WA)


Eating Dicks has been our go-to unfunny joke since Patrick and Paul bailed on a night of drinking in favor of hamburgers and sleep. How much Dicks can they eat? Five. They eat five Dicks between the two of them.

Seattle was awesome. Weird show at the Vera project, but AWESOME...   More

Dirty Mittens: It's Gonna be Awful (Bellingham, Wash.)


It's gonna be awful, I keep telling myself—managing expectations. We will sleep on hard floors and eat bad food. What shows aren't canceled will be for five people in a rec center basement and we won't be paid. We will get robbed, beaten up, snowed in, pulled over, and made fun of. When we f...   More

Phosphorescent at Holocene, March 11, 2009


Guest contributor and Casey Jarman roommate Ben Hubbird attended the Phosphorescent show at Holocene last night. These are his thoughts:

Battle of Land and Sea

Not just a clever name. An acoustic guitar with a heavy patina -- sounds like it grew from the ...   More
