White Fang Tour Diary: Epilogue (California)

TOUR EPILOGUE Hey, just realized that when I got home from tour I didn't tell you about California. It was tight. (Note: This image is actually from Arizona, but we thought it looked California-y.)
Things we learned in California this time around: - Burger Records is tight homies and a rad store. We watched the Gumby Movie and Hell Comes to Frogtown and got stoned. - Juiceboxxx's new ...   More

White Fang Tour Diary: Hurling into Marfa (Marfa, TX)


Day 29, "Magic Marfa" Wow. You know, people talk about Marfa, Texas a lot. Just wiki that shit if you don't know the deal. It really is pretty amazing, to be honest. Tim Johnson, who runs the Marfa Book Co. in "downtown" Marfa, set us up to the point where we didn't have to worry about a single thing. When we showed up there was two pizzas, a cooler full of Corona and Lone Star and even a bottle of Knob Creek. We were elated by his generosity.    More

White Fang Tour Diary: The End of Texas (Austin and San Antonio)


Day 28

Roadkill everywhere on I-10 W to Marfa. CCR playing.

The other day we played in Austin at Club 1808, which is right in the middle of crack central. (*At least no one tried to sell us pants again.) We played with some cool bands and got very drunk. That night Fat Tony's homie Arturo, who lives in Austin, came to get us blunted. Then the next day he took us to what may be one of the my favorite swim spots I've been to in the whole country. We had to go to an apartment complex, find a place to park, hop a fence and dodge poison ivy to get to it. But it was so worth it. There was no one there. There was a huge tree with a ladder built into it with a rope swing; Chris did some funny things with that rope. Brian jumped off the canopy of the tree; we thought he was gonna die for sure. We drank a couple beers and before you could say "light that shit," the cops came walking out of the woods. Chris threw the weed in his hand onto the ground, I left my tighty whites on a tree and they escorted us to our car. They looked at everyone's IDs, asked if we were in high school, told us we couldn't park here, offered us legal swimming options and let us go. Then we went to a very impressive burger spot that Arturo took us to. He gave us a little green and took off into the sun; totally hittin' up that dude next time we're in Austin. For sure.

White Fang Tour Diary: Fat Tony Knows Best (Florida to Texas)

picture 9

A brief note: The song featured at the top of this post was sent randomly from White Fang's email account to a dozen or so of its contacts. The band has not provided context for the rap, nor have we asked for context—really, it speaks for itself. Also, the Disneyland shot should technically be retro-fitted for the last tour diary, but we liked it so much we just put it here. -Ed.

Day 19Boy howdy is it warm down here! We've been trippin' on missing all that tornado shit. It seems like we just missed it!

White Fang: A Chronic Sense of Friendship (New York City and Baltimore)


Day 17

What the fuck is up!

I'm basically texting this from my phone in the back of the 420 Bus (our big red truck) on the sunny, stony highway to Charlottesville, VA.

The last I wrote we had ruled it in Buffalo. We went to NYC after that and played two shows. The first was at Silent Barn in Brooklyn. Its a smaller warehouse space with a basement. We played with our new friend...   More

Day 12


Straight up, last night's show was amazing; a tour highlight. You have to hand it to small towns for bringing the love. We played at this beautiful three floor warehouse space in Dover, OH called the Dover Ballroom.

Since it was a Monday night they had a Garfield theme going and there was lasagna and unlimited beer. Everyone was super stoked and...   More
