Rams Head Live is a great venue and 2-3x bigger than Jaxx where I saw them, so I might have to catch round 2 of this tour as well.

Aah Silver,id hit up a second round too if i could. Believe HR owes ya beers dude for a misunderstanding a while back. So you should hit up that New Mex show. Beers on HR! Sorry HR. Glad to see a second round of dates though . Think most of the first round sold out in those tiny a$$ clubs,hence a second round!

Blind, I think sh!tville vegas might be a few miles closer to ya than Albuturkey...but that place fvcking SUCKS, and we wouldn't get to murder all them beers in good Norse style together if you don't come over here instead :)

Nah R, yer alright...I'm good for all my debts and promises. Though have noticed the so-called 'Hawkeye' caricature disappeared without a trace following the 'misunderstanding'?? Now I know that lame pony's long dead, and I ain't gonna go kick the damned thing again, but the observation is slightly interesting anyway....

ES, with enough scheming and good wit-craft, I believe making that date should be well within your firm grasp my brother, holly-day or no! :)

I think we may have scared him away, sad. R- I'll see how things plan out and try to make NM, it'll be about a 6 hour drive, so depending on how work plays out, hopefully this could happen. Though I doubt it.
