Two Thousand Nine.

We just made several new songs this week which we a re excited to play. Its been a really crazy Holiday and too much partying since Kwanzaa. Rhea is kinda getting sick and losing her voice, hopefully she'll be much better next week because we'll be heading to Santa Barbara to be on 5432Fun, which is a radio show on KCSB hosted by the other half of Watercolor Paintings, Josh. The other half is her sibling, Rebecca, who plays the harp. We've been listening to previous episodes of the show online and really dig the songs he plays in the show. This will be our first time on the radio so it will be fun especially since its kinda out of town and in a college radio. We've been wondering what kind of set-up we're gonna bring but i think we agreed to just play with keys and drums. We are hoping to stay in Santa Barbara until Saturday and hope to find some fun things to do. Maybe we can go to a show or play some impromptu house party or just have fun. We are also looking forward to the Echo Curio show on the 19th. Our great friends The Health Club will play first then us then Billygoat. We also went to The Smell last night to check out Campfire, Sun Araw and Pocahaunted. Rhea wasn't feeling so good, especially after swimming in a sea of noise and drone so we had to leave early -she was getting sick. There were still a lot of people on the streets though it was very cold and foggy. I realized it was because of the Downtown Artwalk. Anyways, i hope you are smiling hard in reading this, lone reader!

P.S. Rhea has been doing the Only For The Open-Minded zine which you can find at some local venues and i've been getting busy in making the Smile Hard zine which i have made available online and some local venues like Pehrspace, The Smell, and soon Don's Records and The Echo Curio.
