The Ladybug Transistor

We miss you!

Gary sent us some great photos, I'll stick a few up here. WE had great fun touring with them, nights of Elton John piano recitals by Kyle, Trumpet lessons from Gary......after listenening to their new album every night I now know all the words and every trumpet solo.; Gary watch out, you're not the only trumpet player around here.

See you all in New York on the 8th June!

The Owl necklace.....

Had rather a strange thing happen which I forgot to mention before. When we played in Hoboken, this guy called Simon Cardwell came up to us and asked if I would like a fairtrade silver and rubies necklace completely free! Apparently he had seen the artwork on the new album and thought it quite fitting that I should have it! I'm so glad Al didn't end up drawing a hippo or something, not sure I would have ended up wearing that around my neck......

Anyway, it turned up at Merge offices a while back and I love it, I haven't taken it off since it arrived.

It's Atlanta night

And we're just sitting backstage listening to Beach House for the first time before going on They sound great!

Had a shambolic but enjoyable gg last night at the Map room with The Explorers Club supporting, was loving their 4 part harmonies. Even managed to swindle a free CD out of them!

Got suck in the most hugemongous rainstorm today from Charleston to Atlanta, rain, lightning, dead skunks and everything. Been eating far too many Nachos out here-I don't even like them, the boys had their first waffle house today, I escaped without eating any hashbrowns this time.

Better go write a setlist.....

We are here!

After the best flight ever, with about 10 rows of seats each and a glass of champanski.

Got the first gig tonigt in oboken, I didn't realise we were in New York, again, made the same mistake last year when I got my boyfriend to fly to New York to then find the city ad sate were 2 very different things. A 9 hour train journey soon got him to the right place though....

Looking forward to plaing tonight, even though my brain is telling me it's 6pm already.

Over and out, x
