Moneybrother: Dreaming in Split Screen (Kentucky, Vermont, New York & More)

CHAPTER 3 Two or three more weeks have passed. Every day is the same day. It's hard to tell if I still exist most of the on the road has changed me. For instance I've found I can sleep anywhere regardless of if I have a pillow or blanket as long as I drink 10 or more shots of whiskey. Also, I don't get hangovers anymore. I just wake up less drunk and begin drinking. I find it helps ...   More

Nurses Video Tour Diary #3: Missin Yer Kissin

When the going gets tough, the tough keep chunking along. That's one of the essential life lessons you learn from watching the third video tour diary from our favorite lovable/deranged psych-pop band Nurses. Also of note? The crippling condition they dub "psycho," or the mental state on notch above van madness on the psychology of van-dwelling totem pole. Would you expect anything else from these guys? ...   More

Floater: Ride the Funk (San Diego)

The band got into San Diego in the wee hours of the morning and I took off for a walk through Presidio Park. I navigated the sleeping homeless scattered around the grass and all the while saw the historical Presidio looming high over the land. It's preserved from the mid 1700's when Spanish missionaries and soldiers built it to help gently persuade the indigenous people to become serfs to the Spanish ...   More

Nurses Video Tour Diary #4

All good things have to come to an end. So it's with this fourth video tour diary—or "Mega Tour Journal" as drummer James Mitchell puts it—that Nurses end the current series for LocalCut. But rest assured, this clip is just as crazy as anything else the trio has done before. Turkeys and SUVs and beards, oh my! Thanks again to Mitchell, Aaron Chapman, and John Bowers for sharing all the ...   More

Menomena: A Menomena European Promotional Tour Guide 2010, or, Dave Lombardo* (Europe!)

It has been been over two years, and we are honored (and, as always, glued to the page) to be able to publish another amazing, giant tour diary entry from Menomena's Danny Seim. You can read Menomena's past tour diaries (in chronological order, nonetheless) here. -Ed. It's a nice day to be alive, which makes it a bad day to start a new journal. Positivity rarely serves as good fodder for anything, ...   More

Archeology: Cattle Manure = Madera (Fresno, CA to Las Vegas)

Fresno to Las Vegas Strong navigational skills are a must for DIY touring, both for making it to the venue on time and for preventing the band from breaking up (think the arguments mom and dad had before they could blame it on GPS). Despite our relatively limited tour experience (only four so far) I feel like we have already graduated to a GPS-less existence, instead navigating purely by familiar ...   More

Nick Jaina: I Finally Broke Into the Prison (Umatilla, OR)

Editors note: As of this morning, Nick Jaina is still short of reaching his Kickstarter goal of $5,000 to fund his new album with less than three days to go. Please visit the page and contribute something if you can. The freedom that most of us work for and defend is ultimately the freedom to waste things. If we feel that we are constrained in our ability to throw away resources, whether those ...   More
