Three shows on this day. The first was at Trailer Space Records, the best record store in Austin for punk and garage type music. Awesome show. Played with Thee Open Sex from Indiana, Marriage from Austin, Spray Pain, and Useless Eaters.
After that we hopped a cemetery wall to get to our show at Sailor Jerry's. Dave forgot his jacket in the cemetery and had to go back right before we played. Luckily, people don't typically pick up and wear coats they find in cemeteries. That show was great, too.
We finally had a chance to catch some bands while waiting for our 1am showcase at the Volstead. Caught Thee Oh Sees, Destruction Unit, and Ex-Cult. All amazing bands! Even though it was late by the time we played, the room was packed with people who really held their liquor well and managed to keep from devolving into droopy-faced confession dispensers. Everyone was bright eyed and bushy tailed. It was our most fun and intense show yet.
