Many of these bands have excellent names. Lil' Hospital might be my favorite.

And I can't help you guys, cuz you're not coming to Texas?!

blanket truth is john, he is so funny and quirky. you gotta see him live. i played with him and watercolor paintings in san deigo once. greatest show i ever played and it was so fun even though like very few people came.

good luck on tour guys, wish i couldve gone up the coast with you rebecca. sorry for not making out to any seattle shows john.

Thanks for the kind words Alex! I hope you had fun when you were in Seattle.

I am indeed the man behind Blanket Truth.

blaise, I wish we could make it to Texas. I've never been yet, so I would like for it to happen in the near future! Also, the Lil Hospital is a really really fun band, I highly suggest checking them out. We're very excited to be playing with them, especially on such a magical show that will be taking place on a rooftop.

Pinocchio, I'm glad you enjoy Watercolor Paintings. They are some of my nearest and dearest friends.


For this tour, the Watercolor Paintings/Blanket Truth split cassette is being reissued for the tour but there's only going to be about 40 more copies or something. There will also be Watercolor Paintings t-shirts designed by Zack Burba from iji and if all goes well Blanket Truth t-shirts and some other stuff.

If anyone wants something and is not going to be around for the tour, get in contact and we'll do what we can to accommodate.

sheboygan? all the way up in sheboygan? :-(

Alex, will do. I'll hold two.

Yep, Sheboygan. I'm sorry, we would've played in Madison but we were having a hard time getting any show in WI at all. This show I don't think is even really going to be promoted and there are no locals playing yet, so it might be a bust, we'll see!

Do you know any bands that would want to play in Sheboygan, because we could certainly use some support, it's the first show of our tour!
