We, The Undersigned Posts New Tour Blog Online
We, The Undersigned has posted a new blog online detailing the band's recent tour dates. An excerpt from the blow follows:
"As I mentioned in the previous entry, our friend from ninjaspy Tim has graciously let us stay with him in Vancouver since we have a few days off. As it happens Tim and his roomate have quite an extensive VHS collection and the WTU Clan are quickly becoming old-school junkies. Sooooo we spent the next 3 days watching Arnold Sweartznegger (?) and Sly Stalone movies, some of which include Commando, Judge Dredd, Total Recall, Die Hard 3, True Lies, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Ace Venture 2, 12 Monkeys and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It's amazing watching the movies from the 80's and 90's depict what the 'future' was supposed to be like. My only regret was that we didn't get to watch 'The 6th Day,' another Arnold classic.
"We all managed to get out and about and did a bit of shopping. I hit up a hippie store and bought some organic soap and spent way to much $ in a used record store. The coolest musical acquisition would have to be the Live Matthew Good double CD that is amazing! Tonight (Feb 23rd) we rock a bar in downtown Vancouver called Funky Winkerbeans. Best venue name ever?
"February 23rd - Funky Winkerbeans, Vancouver BC: We've had some of our best shows in this city at a now-defunct venue called Pub 340 so we were quite stoked to be rocking them again tonight at Funky's. Once again we got to take a stroll through one of the slummiest parts of town and I couldn't believe my eyes. There were homeless people everywhere, it was depressing. I got offered to buy a myriad of things from the unfortunate street sleepers, some of which include (1) steel toed boot, a pack of steaks, canned beer, a random hooded sweater with lots of stains and many stories to tell, and a half a pack of smokes.
"I decided to take a walk down the street with my camera to capture the scene, you may see some of it in our next video blog. It's unfortunate that the system our ancestors chose to embrace, Capitalism, leaves so many behind in the slums without food or shelter and spreads the richess among such a small percentage of the population. I fear that the middle class is progressively disappearing and one day we'll have nothing left but Have's and Have Not's. If you see a bum on a street corner, buy him/her a sandwich.
"We shared the stage tonight with a pretty sweet band from Maple Ridge that we played with once before called Paradosis. The small yet appreciative crowd had a great time tonight and so did we. The stage at Winkerbeans is structurally adventurous so Tyler and I had fun crawling around and acting like rock stars. Tomorrow we embark on a 3-day venture to Vancouver Island with Ninjaspy, let the games begin!"
