Anna F, not sure if we'll make it to Cal Pep but we will definitely be taking advantage of the local cuisine as much as possible.

Evan, if you play a slightly different music bed you should wear an Evil Spock beard.

A charmingly stuttered show tonight. We like you with all your flaws but hey… Next time, right?

I know this sounds silly, but really think it's the new music bed that's been throwing me off.
Avatar Wed. 5/20/15 11:54pm JakeGould:

@efd: The beats on the bed are disconcertingly off if you are a regular listener. So hey. All good.
  Wed. 5/20/15 11:55pm Eddy in Australia:

Yep, another great show. Have fun in Spain. Check out Quimet & Quimet in Barcelona, and there are some good bombas to be had in the backstreet bars of Barceloneta.
