Welcome home to the Grown Children

Dear Jared and Grown Children,
How I missed you so. Yeah there are other bands out there that are just as good, but none of them capture the essence of me like you can. I am so happy for all of you and the many adventures you have had on your travels. I can't wait to hear what I am sure are many great stories of all the shinanigans you were apart of in all those other states. I have to admit I'm a little jealous I was unable to be apart of them. I hope my friend on the east coast welcomed you well and that CMJ was an event to remember. I also heard that some kids in Santa Barbara invited you to their sustainable green living boarding school where they sung along with every song you played. That is so rad. Even though I know that all the shows you've done throughout the last month will yield many wonderful fruits I have to admit I welled with pride as I watched my Grown Children make their way back up the 5 FWY, you were my kids and you were coming home. Thanks for playing a show your first night back, because I'm sure you were really tired. It was radtacular and I'm so impressd with how polished you sound ... you're sound has become more and more cohesive. So I guess I'll wrap this up, but I look forward to hanging out really soon.

Your Pal,

P.S. Here are some photos from the show at Ron Toms and there are more on Flickr.

Going A.P.E.

Oh my sweet Jesus... we had a crazy weekend. Me and fellow Bro Mountain alum Dave Nuss spent last weekend in rainy San Francisco at the ALternative Press Expo or A.P.E. We met a lot of cool people and we're super bummed that we missed talking with Jeffery Brown. We did however get to hang with our good buddy Rusty Jordan. Special thanks to Caitlyn's friend Jesse for hooking us up with a place to stay. You can check out many of the picks we took on our travels at the Flickr website.

Giant Robot is rad and it was cool that we were able to make a stop and have a look around.

Two Happy Customers!!

This guy was a Jack Chick Historian and way too into the series.... He even had a map of Chicks travels

To A.P.E!
