Does anybody look at our tumblr? It’s been a minute since I’ve tumbl’d. My apologies to anyone I’m offending with my lack of enthusiasm for posting. We are still playing music/playing shows/talking shit to customers at our jobs/returning to Saturn/etc.
Danny might have already arrived, though.
Here’s “proof” to try and fool you in to thinking we’re a normal band or something. A live music show in Austin, Texas.
Tomorrow night we play a benefit for the Lilith Fund. It is at the New Movement in Austin. The show will be filmed, as it is a “tonight show” setting, with only 60 seats available. I reckon this will be one of the most interesting shows we have ever played, and can’t stress enough the importance of the cause this show will benefit. Please come out and support. Doors are at 6:30. Show starts at 7:30. Tickets can be purchased online, in case you want to secure yourself a spot.
Since we last went on tour, we have played only one show. It was in Houston at the beginning of November. A couple months have passed since then, and I think any “normal” band would consider those 2 months to be a long time for not playing a show. However, when you are us, you begin to accept that you are anything but normal. You learn to live fluidly and ride the ebb and flow.
It’s been 7 months since the last time we played in Austin. We are very, very excited to try and get nasty with our good friends. It’s been a while, but we think it will be worth the wait. Hope anyone in the area who reads this, will be able to make it out.
Keeping busy recently with printing/dyeing t shirts as well as working on a new zine that we just finished in time for tour called IN BETWEEN. A zine about the West Coast tour we did at the end of last year. Stories and experiences shared through photos and written prose. We are very excited to have it all finished and ready for the road.
Speaking of the road, we set out Sunday. Very excited! Still have a couple dates open and if you have any interest in re-posting this or trying to help us out in anyway, it would mean so much to us. We look forward to seeing you and hopefully cutting a rug soon!

TOM GRRRL is in the process of booking a tour out West this Summer. Rachel made this awesome flyer with preliminary dates for our tour! We are not committed to these dates/towns, so if you have any suggestions or friends anywhere surrounding, please get in touch with us! We would love any help you could offer. If even just re-posting this!
The Pasta Salad Days are upon us! Thanks to Erik Mauck and Chelsea Hernandez for their time and patience throughout the making of this video. A huge shout out to all the people who came to trash Rachel’s kitchen and pour beer all over Danny. We couldn’t have done it without you?
Since we have gotten back from tour, I have been feeling a lil’ stunted. No job. No money. At times, little to no excitement when it comes to life. I have been wishing that we never came back from tour.
All that aside, I have been working on trying to stay positive and focused on the things that bring me happiness. Like my nephews or the summer. There are things to look forward to. I have been remembering them more and more recently, and it feels good to feel purpose…. of some sort, at least.
I’ll be in San Diego for a few days visiting family. I asked my friend Greg if he wouldn’t mind helping me out with a show at the Che while in town. To my good fortune, he offered me a spot on the Stephen Steinbrink show this Friday. If any one is in San Diego this weekend, I will be playing Jehovas Fitness songs. I haven’t played these songs for a while, so it will probably be interesting. Regardless, I look forward to playing old songs in a place that used to feel so much like a 2nd home to me.
