hi guys, i went to chicago for a few days and it was so much fun

i drove with 3 people from craigslist, none of us knew each other and it was kind of neat. probably as close to on the road as i’ll ever get.

the show was great. mission of burma, spoon, ted leo, tapes ‘n tapes, MOUNTAIN GOATS, silver jews, OS MUTANTES WTF so many more i don’t even remember

the best part was hanging out with nick, misee, and zach, going to that rooftop party, i don’t know everything was great. i stayed in a hostel. i got lost in south chicago and had rocks thrown at me! that sucked.

that was so long ago so i won’t talk about it any more

i saw jonah last night, he was great

sox game tomorrow with mom, dad, and little brother.

school starts again soon

i hope everyone has been well

i started a new blog and more frequent and lame updates go there. it’s not hard to find.

this has been the best summer ever probably. a few weeks left. what are you up to?


  1. Sunday… 7pm doors…. are we still on?

  2. dude I wish I had gotten your message about jonah earlier, i totally would have gone. also how OLD were Os Mutantes? I bet they were pretty old. Also Mission of Burma is fucking amazinggggg but I’m sure they were old too, but not as old as Os Mutantes. also, I got your message about coney island but I didn’t even wake up until 5 that day. I slept over Nicks and we didn’t go to sleep until 7 in the morning. meh.

  8. omg i just saw the mountian goats and he was all ‘this rocks! is the last real indierock music festival around (read: burn on pitchfork)!!!!’ Also, he played golden boy, which he claims to only have peformed once in his life, and that was when he recorded it? Anyway, lol he looked a lot less wise than i thought he would

  16. Surprise! I think it’s funny how you’re completely honest about everything.

    Comment by katerrzzz — August 13, 2006 @ 3:03 pm

  17. By the way, you live maybe 10 minutes from my house. I thought that was kind of weird.

    Comment by katerrzzz — August 13, 2006 @ 3:03 pm

  18. hah oh. did you go to the boston show? i missed it.

    Comment by zig_mover — August 13, 2006 @ 5:41 pm

  19. Yeah, and the Providence show. I was going to go to Connecitcut as well, but I went on a campus tour of UNE instead. It was really sad.

    Comment by katerrzzz — August 13, 2006 @ 6:16 pm

  20. Connecticut* And the Providence show was essentially better than the Boston one anyway, so you didn’t miss a lot!
