WOW

You guys?  At Neumo's last night?  I think I'm falling in love with all of you.  Way to party like it was actually NYE!  Thanks to Sean and the Harvey Dangers for keeping our streak intact, thanks to Toucan Pete for champing Basil's bass parts, thanks to Tim Hyland for understudying Basil during the Bathroom Monologue, thanks to Tracy Repep for kissing my tie and then singing her head off, thanks to BOAT for making the people bounce, thanks to John Roderick for the bottle of water and for playing Lennon to Sean's McCartney in "I've Got a Feeling", thanks to the Missus Auer for drawing a happy face on my blood blister, and thanks to the Very Mister Auer for shredding his fantastic guitar during Wurm.  Speaking of, for those of you who would like to know what the absurd prog anthem surrounding "American Boyfriend" was:  "Starship Tr00per", written and performed by Yes on their 1971 powerhouse The Yes Album.  Yes!  They're considered spiritual leaders of a sort around here.  If you'd like to hear what we sound like doing this epic when we have a studio in which to play our parts, go over here.  (Happy Strangercrombie '06, Thomsen!)

I think I speak for all "Awesome"s everywhere when I say that you, reading this, are awesome as well.  We all wish you the happiest of new years.  2008 contains all our beautiful futures.

Thank you guys for a great show. It seems like every time I drag a friend to their first "Awesome" show they come out a rabid fan, so you guys are clearly doing something right.

Thanks for the great show at Neumos. My friends and I were pleasantly surprised just how awesome of a performance you guys actually provided.

I missed your guys' set last year at the First Annual Last Show Ever and was so happy to see you this year! I picked up The Beehive Sessions from one of your wandering bandmates then and there because of it. Fantastic!

Sadly I missed the show...but I just gave Starship Trooper a listen and peed my pants a little. I also really liked the cover.
