The Beat Of A Different Drum

Er....

Not much to report other than we're busy in Nashville preparing for some upcoming shows.

Ethan is doing a great job with the tunes, and we're definitely throwing him some curveballs. Since we're only doing a few shows next week, we're sailing into some unchartered waters with the set. We hope no one will mind. We also hope that we don't run into pirates.

I've been listening to the song Beautiful Beat by Nada Surf all week. Its good. The rest of the songs on the record take their turns hitting or missing.

Time to rest.
Matthew

raven said...

dang , matty ..
took you long enough to write (;

Melanie said...

You are making me feel kinda sad that I can't be there. :(
I'll check out Nada Surf. I've heard of them, but not listened. Which ones hit besides Beautiful Beat?

I saw Mute Math with Alanis and Matchbox 20 Thurs. night. It will have to make up for missing you guys. They were amazing. WOuld love to see you in that venue. The sound at the E-center is spectacular.

It's about time you blogged again :)

Ethan's awesome.
It really sucks that I can't make it out to the show in Nashville. Nashville's only a few hours away from me.

emkay said...

matty, what up! I was checkin' on the jonster and figured out that you had a blog. rad. so i thought i'd say hi. you seem to be the popular guy, as per usual. hope you are great and maybe i'll catch you cool cats in LA on warped this summer. I'm in London right now, but i miss the sunshine. Soak it up.
many blessings, brother-
