heheh. oh snow cream. how i love thee. only...we actually make it with maple syrup...canadian thing, i suppose. (along with our beavertails and igloos, and such..eh?)

shmee. ice cream. *loves*. 'nuff said.

heh.

glad the shows are coming together! hope you're all having a grand time.

The show tonight had a nice vibe--regardless of the fact that the songs were new to us we were feeling them. "We Ride"--amazing! Nothing like an evening of excellent new music in a cozy, gorgeous venue on a cold night.

Your "family" sounds like ours--driving around in the freezing cold in a broken down van. Appropriate. Thanks for taking the time from your busy schedules to throw this thing together--it was as fun for us as it looked like for you.

I was at the Grand Rapids show and may I just say...WOW! The concert was amazing and had such depth of musicality and talent! I had such a great time-even though I wanted to get up and dance! In the Calvinist world, no! Thank you so much for sharing your music and I will be following your success!
One down side, I wanted to purchase a CD but apparently did not run fast enough to the "merch" table. Is there a way I can get one?
Much love-Sarah

Okay this was about the best show I have seen in years. I didn't know one song (except for the solo interludes) but I bought the CD and listened to it all the way home. "We Ride" was really good. The vocal hook is unreal. Sean's new song "For the Sender" - you were right - it sent chills (not that being zero degrees outside helped) - the theater was really nice and "fit" the songs well. The entire atmosphere was super. For those who haven't seen the show yet I STRONGLY urge you to go. What a nice time, thanks and be safe out on the road!

Grrrreg

By the way, I am not completely sure, but I think you played an Arcade Fire song - anyone who went can verify this, because I don't really know their music all that much.

Jeanna

Grrreg - I heard they played "Keep the Car Running" ... Arcade Fire.

Jeanna

grrrreg - I believe the song was "Keep the Car Running"... Arcade Fire

Grrrreg

Yeah that was it. I didn't know the song but it really fit the entire set perfectly.

rachel from vermont

hahaha i have an undying love for ice cream too. although right now its so cold, i'd rather something hot.

lisa- yeah! 'sugar on snow'. but it tastes better with vermont syrup and vermont snow. lol
