Amorphis - My Kantele
Just locked in the last two units to finish my degree. I’m really excited about the one that sends me to New York City for two weeks, not to mention that I’m finally gonna finish this goddamn thing.
We asked Ben for a flyer with a motorcycle, and goddamn did he deliver.

You should come to this for the following reasons:
1. Solid lineup in a kewl venue
2. It’s Toby’s last show with us so come buy him drinks and pinch his bum (if you can find it)
3. Related to point number two, after this we’re probably gonna go into hiding for a little while
4. Special one-off performance of a song we’ll never play again
5. Did I mention Toby’s bum?
Today I bought some cheap effects pedals at ALDI and everyone I’ve said that to so far is like “ew they would have to suck” but here I am putting a guitar through an octave pedal/the ALDI chorus and lo and behold I now have perfect goth bass tone. I need to figure out a way the use this now.

Flew down to Melbourne, stayed in a house of legends and a cat (who is also a legend), drove out to the bush, set up camp, played a pretty mediocre set but everyone was drunk so that worked out, got drunk myself, repeated that last step once or twice, saw some great bands, met some cool people who were all really nice despite me being the token cleanshirt and crazy shy in huge groups, and now I’m showered and headed home. A good experience, all in all.
