July 19th - Medicine Hat

So we didn't die getting to Brandon, and are now roosting in Medicine Hat. We're playing at a former strip club turned music venue. The stage is made of lights and it's pretty nifty. Not many people came but it's okay. Tomorrow we go to Lethbridge, where we play a show and get to see Joyce Kwan. I am excited.

July 12th in Montreal

So yeah we're in Montreal now. I don't speak any french, only Justin does. We played an awesome show in Winnipeg, and managed to not run out of money until two days ago. We are playing at Le Cagibi tonight, this wicked cafe that I am currently sitting in. Sushi in Ottawa sucks if you go to the first place we went to and spent too much money at. We stayed in the van last night, and camped the two nights before. We also slept in the sketchy basement of the Townehouse in Sudbury. It smelled like urine.

July 5th - Edmonton

We just drove here from Grande Prairie. It took a long time and our van was slow again. A huge truck full of liquid nitrogen passed us and made me feel very anxious. I generally don't like it when crazy truck drivers who have been on the road since 4 that morning, and are potentially hopped on up on some sort of uppers, pass me in a vehicle with canisters filled with pressurized and potentially explosive gases behind it that are lager than my van. But that's just something I'll have to get used to. For now we have to figure out how to make some money in Edmonton before we leave for Saskatoon tomorrow.

July 4th - Grande Prairie

First tour update. We played at this place called Better than Fred's. It paid really well and they got us a hotel room. We are going to sleep well tonight and then cry tomorrow because we don't have a show in Edmonton :( But our pal Jeff is going to take cool pictures of us which will be awesome!!! Our van costs much in fuel. It is hot out. We saw a bear, a deer, and a moose today. Everyone passes us on the highway because we are slow.
