Wow, finished Dino tour November 21 and left for Fog/Witch UK tour about a week later. Everything was good. Fog did two really cool shows at ATP and a few other gigs, nice.. They are are a great band. Witch played at ATP and in London, awesome.

J also played with Porn which is fronted by Tim Moss, TM for the Melvins. It included Dale and Cody form the Melvins and Dave, Melvins sound man and bass player for the Unsane. It was pretty amazing stuff! Got to mix the band which was fun. I also got to mix Om for three shows. Fantastic stuff, they added a keyboard player.

Anyway, here's a few pictures

Idiot Wind

Been in Canada for a few days. Cold but no snow. Shows have been good. We're doing the Canadian shows with Pink Mountaintops. They are great. Day off today! Here are some pictures of Dinosaur.

Day off in Seattle today. That means laundry. Glamorous life! We were at the Showbox in Seattle yesterday. Great venue, interesting show. The gigs in LA and San Francisco were awesome.I really like LA House of Blues and The Fillmore. I'm a big fan of the '60's San Fran sound so it was a real treat to get to mix Dinosaur Jr in the original Fillmore. Headed to Canada tomorrow.

Bare Trees

We've been making our way to Tempe, Arizona for the next show on Tuesday. Stopped for a day in Santa Fe. It's a lovely town and I was really glad to have a few hours to look around...and do my laundry! West coast run coming up, nice.

Wango Tango

Wow, been a long time since I wrote anything. Been busy. After Atlanta we did 4 shows with Built To Spill. Great band and I love it when we do shows with them. Represents all that's good about music, touring and life in general. Show at Stubbs in Austin was just amazing. Everybody sounded great.

The show in Salt Lake City got cancelled due to bad weather. Bummer all around. Shows in Colorado were nice, we arrived in Boulder during a blizzard, two feet of snow. Heading to Tempe next, then to the west coast. Nice!

A few days off, nice. Atlanta last night, I enjoyed it. The Variety Playhouse there is quite nice. Dino played a cool acoustic set at Criminal Records. Next shows are in Texas with Built To Spill. That will be fun!

Out with Dino now for about a week in the US. Some great shows so far, the guys are sounding great. Lou Barlow and the Missing Men are opening. They are playing some very cool stuff from Lou's new solo album. We are in Madison, Wisconsin today, a day off. Had some excellent Nepalese food and bought some Miles Davis and Amon Duul cd's. A good day. Here are a few pictures from Europe and the US.

Special hello to David Copp of Sennheiser who came to the show at Toads in New Haven. Love your microphones!

Feats Don't Fail Me Now

J has upgraded his pedal board, some exciting new effects like the ZVEX Double Rock. It all sounds great. Here are some pictures. Note the plastic wrap to ward off flying bottles of water!

The Unknown Soldier

Been on tour with Dino in Europe for about 3 weeks. Things are going well. Been all over the place, London, Tel Aviv, Sheffield! We are using some cabinets J had stored in Europe. Much better sounding than rentals. Here's a few pictures
