Whoa, we’re totally in Portland, OR right now! We just played a super cool show at Backspace last night with crashfaster, A Gentleman’s Picnic, and BPM Ensemble. Major thanks to Apes Tapes for putting this show together for us, and for Radiation City for showing up. Speaking of the two, check out the chip cover we did of Radiation City’s “The Color of Industry” on Apes Tapes. This, and a number of other chip remixes will be included in a future Apes Tapes release. More info on that soon.

Right now we’re livestreaming on http://www.songatron.com for Jonathan Mann’s Song-A-Day: The Album project! We’re tracking parts for the song “The Only Way I Know How” with crashfaster. There’s still a lot to do left for the stream, so you can still (maybe) tune in, at least if I get this post up in time. Check out the song in its demo form here:

Tomorrow, we’re heading up to Seattle, WA to play a show at Pink Gorilla. Then we’re coming back down to Portland, OR and are hopefully playing a house party we were able to get on at the last minute! Follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook to get details on that as that comes.

Also, special, special thanks to AJAPOPFILMS who is touring with us and making rad videos along the way! We’re heading back home this weekend and will be playing our homecoming show at DNA Lounge in San Francisco on July 7, which will also be the first PulsewaveSF of many. We are totally psyched for this, and it’s going to be a huge show. And for those anxiously waiting, yes — our EP will be ready by then. :)

We had an amazing time playing the entire weekend at Maker Faire in San Mateo. We played Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22 on the Digital Sound Space stage byPulsewaveSF. It was such an honor to share the stage with other awesome chip/electronic artists like crashfaster (who we’re touring with in two weeks!), starpause,Mr. Spastic (who is playing with us at Meltdown Comics in LA), Doctor Popular, andHyperwave to name a few. On Sunday, we shared our set with super-awesome visualistMax Capacity (see photo above). We also got to play on the Solar Stage that day:

Thanks to some familiar faces from our last (first) show for coming out! And thanks to all the new fans we met at Maker Faire who made their way onto our Facebook Fan Page andTwitter. If you haven’t already, be sure to check it out!

We still have a few things on the agenda before we kick off our Quest Coast Tour 2011with crashfaster. We got a few more days in the studio finishing up our long-awaited debut EP and finalizing all the little details. We also have one more show coming up!

Friday, June 3 we’ll be performing at SubZERO Festival. It’s a street festival in San Jose, CA in the city’s SoFA District. If you’re in the Bay Area and want to catch us one last time before we leave, make sure you head on over! Did we mention it was free? More details can be found at http://www.subzerofestival.com/ or our Shows page.

See you all soon!
