Netherfriendsbooking@gmail.com Spread the word. Bring us snacks!
Gas is expensive. I am sick of paying for it. I am sick of driving and feeling like a slob. Since the 50 songs 50 states project will be (hopefully) accomplished, I will need to do something creative to keep my touring brain from going insane. SOOOOOO Starting on May 21st, Netherfriends will be riding bikes to your city instead of driving. I will be bringing drummer Mark Quinlan from the band Hop Along and guitarist/bassist/keyboardist Andy Moholt from the band the Armchairs with me. Here is what the tour looks like:
May 21st PhilaMOCA
May 22nd New Jersey
May 23rd New Jersey
May 24th Death By Audio (Brooklyn, NY)
May 25th Spike Hill Brooklyn
May 26th Taco Hut New Haven, CT
May 27th Providence, RI
May 28th The Whitehaus W/The Zookeepers (Jamaica Plain, MA)
May 29th WTF Fest (Wellfleet, MA)

So at an unnamed bar/venue on 6th street downtown (that I really wish I could name because of the way they handled the situation) during SXSW, my book bag, which had my computer and passport along with many other items that I hold close to my heart were stolen right from the back area of the venue. I was upset, but surprisingly held it together and kept my cool. I guess I realized it was just (expensive) stuff and that at least I nor anyone else was hurt. Although, I did lose the Alabama song from my 50 states project. I waited a few days to file a police report in hopes that one of the bands took it by accident.
At the same time, I remembered signing up my computer for this website called Prey Project http://preyproject.com/ it is a website that allows you to track a missing computer through it's ip address and it will take screen shots and a picture of the person using it every 10-20 minutes. It will give you a rough location of where your computer is as well and it's FREE!!! So for the first few days I figured it was gone for good because I got zero notifications. Then yesterday, (the day after I filed a police report) I got 7 notifications in my email starting at 4:30 AM. It gave me the following pictures:
Got the dudes face and his name, plus a google maps location of where my computer was. CRAZYYYY! So later that day, the police notified me that they found my computer and I was nice enough of a guy to not press charges on this jerk. I still can't believe I got my computer back and still have all 49 states recorded!!!! So please share this story with all of your friends and please register your computer with http://preyproject.com/ it's free!
Shaved my beard and looking like a kid in a candy store.
