CATCH UP. Lollapalooza Thru Fall Tour

It has man many moons since I updated this monster. A lot has happened. A lot of very exciting things have happened. I almost kind of don't know where to start. I think I will merely start where my pictures start. Gonna do this bullet style:

- Wes DJing with Rostam at the XL / Discovery listening party at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC
- Played All Points West music festival in NJ… among many acts like Vampire Weekend, Jay Z, Fleet Foxes, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
- Went out to Indiana before Lollapalooza to open a show for The Killers. Met Brandon Flowers. Are we human? Dancer.
- Traveled up to Chicago for Lollapalooza. Played for 12,000 people at 12:30 pm on the mainstage. Largest crowd watching Ra Ra Riot ever.
- Played a show at the Hard Rock Hotel afterparty. The dressing room was an indie rocker sponge.
- Tracked some demos in the farm lands of upstate NY. More absurd rainbows.
- Kicked off the Fall '09 tour with Princeton and Maps & Atlases
- Went to a Dallas Stars game. Saw a great fight.
- Sold out some huge shows, including the 9:30 Club in DC and The Paradise in Boston.

The near future holds a very exciting schedule. Stay tuned. I also plan to put a video together to post in a few days covering the listed events.
