Canada was a blast and found out we were one of the last shows at The Silver Dollar Room as it's closing soon after a long run as one of Torontos go to venues... It was a great show!
Last night we got back at it here in the good ol' USA playing a great new club in Detroit called EL CLUB. We fogged it out so much our dressing room was like a fire safety video! DROP TO THE GROUND and find the nearest exit...,
Heading to Cleveland! See you there...

Hey Canada! We have arrived and I forgot how cold your beautiful land is!! Last night was a blast at Bar Ritz in Montreal... I haven't been here since PULSARS opened for Supergrass in 97... Bar Ritz was packed we hit it hard and went virtually all night!!! You guys know how to party!!!!!

Had a great show last night in Houston... Total surprise as I've never been or played there in the past. Good ol darkwave music fans abound... WOMH production manager Bobby showed us good time with a party in the lookout tower that spun into a after hours "80's Goth party" downtown... Well, not so sure how "Goth" or "80's" it was as we were definitely the only 80's goths around! They did play Blue Monday between 2 hip hop tracks of unknown origins and there were a few leather bondage gear people lurking around being bring super out of place next to all the plain janes and baseball cap bobs... Very weird scene... Almost Lynchian.
Til next time Texas! Adios...

Seeing tonight's show in Houston is our last show in Texas we better drink this bag of Peter Hooks Lone Star!!! Thanks Hook! Love the bag.... Tonight's show at the White Oak Music Hall is sure to be a pleasure.
