You've got a lot of questions for me.

To say that last night's show was a success would be a ridiculous understatement. Not only was the M$M set the best I've seen, but Hostage Life and Knucklehead also destroyed. Add the fucking towering inferno that is Last Communion to that mix and you've got one hell of a barn-burner.
We're completely out of the first run of LC shirts, but we'll have more at the next show. More colours and sexier, sultrier designs. When is the next show, you ask? I have no clue. I'm sure we'll hop onto some bill and leave the audience looking like they'd collectively jammed a giant paperclip into a gargantuan wall outlet.
There's also been further discussion about the Last Communion 7"/10"/whatever. There's a business meeting of some kind in the works. This cannot happen soon enough.
Anyway, thanks to Brad & Luke for tossing us on last night's show, and thanks to the other bands, particularly the Marxists for letting us borrow some gear. Huge thanks to Chris De La Farrell for recording the watchable masterpiece located at the top of my ramblings.
New Tranzmitors LP. Look into it.

Wake up to the real deal.

That's right dames & fellas, we've got shirts. We're gonna have an astounding 10 shirts for sale at the M$M/Hostage Life show tonight, and they're ghetto as hell, so they'll be very reasonably priced. We're talking VERY reasonably. Like go and sell both of your Hawthorne Heights CDs for $4 each and you can afford one. It's a good move.
Designed & handcrafted by Emmanuel & myself while listening to Kill the Musicians and eating Kettleman's. It was a delightful afternoon. Random sizes, white & yellow, occasional smudge-marks.
Limited edish. New designs for the next show.

LC vs. M$M & more

Ya, I know that's a picture of RKL and not Last Communion, but I'm not at home and there's no scan of the upcoming show flyer yet, so here's what you get. A killer old shot of one of the greatest bands of all time. RIP Jason, Bomer and Derrick.
Anyhow, we're playing our first non-End Hits show this week with our pals the Million Dollar Marxists, as well as Toronto's Hostage Life and a couple of other bands. It'll be followed by the weekly Rock N Roll Pizza Party at which Emmanuel and I (Dave) will be sharing Emmanuel's usual DJ spot. It should be swell.
The show is all ages and starts at like dinner time or something, so why not just come on out. You'll be home nice and early, probably. We might even have actual shirts at this show, although chances are we're gonna make like 10 of them and only sell 2 or 3...if we're lucky. May 24th @ Babylon. $7, I do believe. It starts at 6 or 7. Hopefully 7.
In other news, even after numerous attempts to pin down a date to record, we have not pinned down a date to record. It's happening in June. That's for goddamned sure. Then hopefully we can weasel our way onto to some out of town shows.
In related news, Handsome Hayden Menzies will be showing his art at Artguise on Bank St. starting May 25th. Get on down there and spend some of your parents' money. This shit is genius. Also, METZ (featuring LC rhythm wizards Hayden and Chuckington Saso) will be playing at this year's NXNE festival in Toronto on June 7th. A guaranteed ass-shaker.
