i’m on the train bound for the west coast of the usa… i’m going out cause my sister molly is organizing: “art of community” (look), a gathering of communes & LTS helped with the registration so i’m going & i’m real curious & it’s right outside of where victoria has gone to work for 3 months in the bay area. we talked about playing shows out there while i’m there… dunno if it can happen, depends on many things working out… like drums, having a show, amp… hopefully we win. how hard can it be, if you build it they will come, ease it halen
