a summary of 2014 using some whack pictures of myself that remind me of some pretty fine times.
(also the evolution of my hair)
Friend Birthday! ! !

  • we got a whole ton of other out of town shows from this weekend, including the bloor ossington folk festival, amazing shows in Guelph and Hamilton, we opened for Sheezer at Lee's Palace, and played an absolutely amazing set at Long Winter in Toronto (where they're put out a 7" inch with our song she can wait on it!)
