Two days before flying to Europe, we played a send-off show at our local watering hole. We had put out a call for requests for the set list and ended up with a great 10-song set comprised of both oldies and new songs. Our friends Canyons of Static opened the show and with addition of Northless guitarist, Nick Ehlert, they sounded more massive and more awesome than ever. We played really well and had a blast. My brother, in town from Boston, pointed out that it appeared as though we all played as if we were 100% into it, believing in the sound we were making. As I said to him, there is no reason to do it otherwise. We fly to Paris Monday!
