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