Last FTT tour for a while. Might try to squeeze a little one in this January but after that we’re taking a brief hiatus from the road. I’m having a baby girl this March. Gonna take some time to focus on that plus my new management position at the Kalamazoo Corner Record Shop.
Still gonna play plenty of local shows and we’ve got plans for several new albums. Stay tuned.
Thanks for the memories.

Tour is over. We are making the trek to Michigan City to drop Tabbia off, then back to Kzoo. I’m gonna miss the road, and it’s gonna be a while before I’m back, but it’ll make it that much sweeter. The show tonight was fun. Thanks for the good times, Midwest.
Bloomington. Y’alls awesome.

We’re down to the last few hours of tour. Mr Tabbia has got the wheel and we’ll be in Bloomington real soon. On a mission to find some decent Chinese food and kick back.
Our buddy Khora has a house party boomed tonight. Looking forward to weirding out some drunk college kids.
After that, its a long night drive featuring a final Waffle House stop near Indianapolis and a Tabbia drop off in Michigan city. I’ve got a short medical study plus record store shift tomorrow which means I wont get any substantial sleep until 4pm at least. Gig life.
We re-packed the car today and I discovered I’ve purchased 32 records, 4 DVDs and 1 T-shirt. Got a 7″ and some tapes via merchant trades too. Not bad at all! We stumbled accross an amazing Flea Market in Granite City yesterday where I made most of my purchases. I’m thinking new St Louis tradition.

They say everything can be replaced
They say every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here
They say every man needs protection
They say every man must fall
Still I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere so bight above the wall
Now yonder stands a man in this lonely crowd
Someone who swears he’s not to blame
All day long I hear him shouting so loud
Just crying out that he was framed
I see my light come shining
From the West down to the East
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

We’re are currently on our way to Bloomington for our last show of tour. I was told this will something of a house party which worked out really well last time, but this time we don’t have drums :/ It should be a good time though. Free beer and hopefully hanging with some old friends. After the show we might be hitting Indy for Waffle House and then we are dropping Tabbia off in Michigan City to take the train back to Chi so he can be at work tomorrow morning and then booking it back to Kzoo so Sean can make his med trial outpatient at 7:10 am. Then getting through Thanksgiving week and Black Friday at CRS. Shout out to Joe and Mabel for being fucking awesome.
