So much fun.

July 2, 2011

We don’t even have time to update everyone back at home. We are all safe and (relatively) healthy. We miss you all. New England is a beautiful place. There are so many trees, and so many friendly people that we’ve gotten to meet. It also feels like November right now to us. Thanks so much to everyone that we’ve already met, and we’re still excited to meet all of our new friends in the midwest!

It’s morning in Richmond, and this city is turning into quite the experience. We got here, and it was kinda quiet, so we did some walking around, but it turns out EVERYTHING closes at 6:00 PM. We managed to sneak into a record store called Steady Sounds just before close for some sweet browsing. Sadley, (fortunately if you’re my bank account) there were no New Order records. Just being in the town where AVAIL, Strike Anywhere, Pg. 99, Inquisition, GULL(!!!!)and many many more bands are from is beyond cool. Or cool beyond words even.

I wish we had pictures posted to show you all the ridiculous things we’ve seen so far. We tossed animal crackers into each other’s mouths with Run, Forever. We saw Pedals on our pirate ships destroy in a basement. We played our first basement show ever! We get to the house we’ra staying at, and get to watch a juggling performance. The list goes on and on. I think a travel zine is in order for sure.

We did discover that our power steering doesn’t really feel like working, so we’ve had a slight hiccup, but fortunately we have the day off, and tomorrow is only DC which isn’t too far away. We might however, end up playing a show in Fredricksburg tonight. Life on the road is wild! So many cute dogs. I did get a cute picture of my cat though. I miss him a lot. If you’re in Tallahassee, go by my house and hang out with him for a few minutes.

Tonight we palyed in Asheville, NC. It was the first time any of us had been in this city. I think it’s safe to say that we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. ‘We got to town and went straight to the venue, a place called The Get Down. We immediately felt at home after looking at some flyers that the owner had collected, like the one from a Rancid/88fingerslouie show. Or Dead Kennedys/Rites of Spring. Mindblowing. Then we went to pick up stuff to start dubbing our tapes. More on that later like when it actually gets done.

We walked to Harvest Records and checked out their awesome selection. It really made us all miss having a record store in the town where we live. Then we met up with Rubrics, and hung out at FIRESTORM (If only it was this firestorm) I wish I could afford to buy every book there. So much great information at our fingertips! Seriously, check this place out if you can.

The show was really fun too. I think we might have spent more time rearranging the marquee than actually playing, but we made some great friends, and sold our first shirt of everthe tour (Thanks Sara[h]). Old Flings was awesome, and I was dancing. I hope they come to Florida soon! Richmond tomorrow! We get to hang out with Run, Forever and Sundials again!

Get Jealous

We get to play with this band in DC. I’m so excited. This tour is going to be awesome!.

Also this band played at my house last night. My mind is still Blown. SIRS Check the tunes. Then pick up your brain off the floor. Also, they do better dives than you because they’re from New England.

Show Friday with friends!

May 23, 2011

We’re playing a show with our good friends in Spraynard, Criminal Culture, and Rickety Cricket this weekend. All of those bands are our friends. We’re really excited.

Also, Earth First! will be giving a presentation before the show, so that should be super cool.

In Sleeping Spiders news, this whole tour thing is really exciting. We’re so pumped to have so many nice friends and strangers(future friends) helping us out, and it’s turning into the best time ever already. Our Drummer is 10 days away from coming back from a broken arm, and we’re writing some new songs, and we’re really excited to share them with the world, and all that. That said, we still need a bit of help in a few places, and if you’ve got any info please share it. Here’s a list.

NYC/Long Island
Somewhere Between Boston and Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
Cleveland/Columbus/Kent/Akron, OH
Chicago
Bloomington
St. Louis

Other than that, this tour is looking really good, and we’re super duper pumped about it.
See you soon?

P.S. I thought we lived in a state that was cool enough to not try and push racist laws on people, amongst other things. Bummertown.

This song is so good.

Here are the lyrics in English, because this band was nice enough to translate their songs into 3 languages besides the one they sing in. AWESOME!!!!!!

The little revolutions assembly
Here and now begins
The Little Revolutions Assembly

In the beginning we’ll be scabs
In this long brains’ strike
And we’ll write songs with the list of the silenced words

A new era has begun
The Little Revolutions Assembly

All what you feel
All what you’d like to have

There’s none of us missing
In the Little Revolutions Assembly

Tells us what’s your idea to make us all different
Not who are you against, but
What are you ready to do

All what you feel
All what you’d like to have
Why resigning if what is offered to us
Is not enough?

A new era has begun, don’t fall behind
A new era has begun, nobody can stop us
A new era has begun, respect is the password
Respect
