Last week we made our way up to Santa Barbara. We played on the local college radio station, KCSB 91.9 FM and made some new friends! I have to say that this trip helped make me bliss; exploring! creating! and sharing music!

We drove up Thursday night and played on the radio show 5...4...3...2...Fun! with radio host Josh from the band Watercolor paintings. Josh is a rad guy who always welcomes bands onto his show each week.

We played just over a half hour set and gave a one hour seminar about our political and socio-economic beliefs. It was really fun!!!!

We didnt have much of a plan, but Josh was nice enough to let us crash in his living room. We woke up and made our way to a beautiful butterfly preserve. It's the season for Monarch butterflies to migrate through the area, particularly, a Eucalyptus field. You walk inside, stand still, look around and begin to see swarms of butterflies emerge from the shadows, fly out of mossy logs and rest on blades of grass blowing in the breeze.

Gabe and Katya met us on the beach just in time for sunset. We ate some mediocre sushi and went to see Josh's band play at a house party at UCSB. It's a great community of people and bands, definitely worth checking out!

Soon enough, it was time for us to go home. Traveling and experiencing other people's creations is the best. Next time we can stuff you in our trunk and take you along with us...
