Yesterday was an off day. We spent the whole day doing an 11 hour drive from Norwalk, CT to Southfield, MI (suburb of Detroit). The drive was fine.

Corey and Max made an appearance on Fox 2 Detroit this morning. They did a short interview and played 'Surround Yourself' acoustic. It went really well!

David Allen Greer was also a guest on the show! We didn't get to meet him, but we were in the same room as him when he did his interview.

We're playing at St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit tonight. This is the same place where Eminem did the rap battle on '8 Mile'. Pretty sweet! Ha.

Hartford, CT (Webster Theatre)

Tonight's show was at the Webster Theatre in Hartford, CT. The guys had played this venue a few times last year. This was the first show we played in Hartford that had more than 75 people. The show was pretty good! There were about 600 people there. The guys played well. The sound on stage wasn't the best, but the guys got through it fine.

Nothing too crazy happened at the show, but it was a good time! We're now on our way to Tony's place (he works for our label). It should be a good time. Tomorrow is an off day. We'll be driving all day. We've got an eleven hour drive to Friday's showin Detroit.

Philadelphia, PA (The Fillmore)

Last night's show was at The Fillmore in Philadelphia. We had never played the Fillmore in Philly before. This venue was great! The show went really well. The guys played well and it sounded great. There were about 700 people there.

The venue was on South St., which is a very happening part of the city. We got Philly cheesesteaks at Jim's. We ate there this summer too. This place is great. You have to order your cheesesteak with cheese whiz. It's so good.

After the show, we went back to NJ and stayed real close to the hotel that we were at the night before. We're now driving to tonight's show in Hartford, CT. It should be a good day!

The Fillmore @ Irving Plaza (New York, NY)

Yesterday was our first of five shows with Simple Plan. The mini-tour kicked off in NYC. The guys had played the Knitting Factory multiple times, but they had never played at The Fillmore. This venue was sweet! It was a 1,000 capacity room and the show sold out! Awesome.

The show was great! These five shows are just The Graduate and Simple Plan, which is pretty sweet.

The guys played well, the crowd dug them, and Simple Plan dug them too! Pierre (singer of Simple Plan) talked about the Grad during his band's set and he said "They're good! Almost TOO good!" I thought that was pretty cool.

A lot of the label came to the show. Our good friends, Julia and Jacqueline came to the show from Baltimore. Our friend, Fiona, came from Philadelphia as well. It was great seeing all of them.

Tonight's show is in Philly. We're just rolling into town now. The show tonight is probably going to sell out. Hopefully tonight's show goes as well as last night's!

Jerseyville, IL (KC Hall)

We played a show in Jerseyville, IL on Saturday, Feb. 16th with Whisperwall and C4. This was Jerseyville's first show in a long time (if not ever). The show was legit! There was a good crowd. It was fun playing in a smaller town. I enjoy small town shows every now and then. It brings us back to our roots.

I had some friends come out to the show. We got some time to hang out, so that was good. We left after the show and got home around 2am. Not bad at all!

Macomb, IL (The Cafe)

The guys played at The Cafe in Macomb on February 8th. Macomb is a college town (Western Illinois University), and this bar was definitely a college bar! The show was really fun. The bar was packed. The guys didn't play until 1am, but it was all good.

After the show, we went to an after party for a few while and then we went home. We rolled into Springfield around 6am.

Overall, it was a really good night. I hope we start playing more college towns. It seems like a good audience for the band.

Crown Point, IN (Hall Of Justice)

The guys played a show in Crown Point, IN on Feb. 2nd with Asteria, Powerspace, Carawae, and Fiction City. The show was great! There were almost 400 people there. The guys went over well.

After the show, we hung out with our buddies in Asteria. We left Crown Point at 4am and made it home around 8am.

Crown Point is always a good time. I hope we get to go back soon!
