Give me a break, give me a break, break me off a piece of that…

Hey lovlies..
Well, the Hotel Cafe Tour is over for me. The show in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg was my last and it’s a bittersweet ending. I made some great friends in the girls on the tour and will miss them dearly, however, I’m happy to be taking a break from the road. A strange wash of relief spread over me at 3am this morning as I sat in backseat of the cab on the way to LaGuardia. I realized I was about to experience normalcy for a while. I was on my way home to see my family, my friends, sleep in my bed, get a job, UNPACK! The Shivs are all back in their respective places, workin’ away as well. We’ll be taking a sort of break from touring for the next few months while we get that brand new full length album all ready for you beauts. There will be a few shows in Texas with Justin Townes Earle and APAP showcase show in NYC at Joe’s Pub with John Doe and the Sadies this winter, but other than that, we’re gonna just disappear for a bit if that’s alright…We’ll be pluggin’ away still, writing songs, regaining some health, trying to look real nice for you come Spring…

Anyways, if you’re interested, I’m gonna post some pictures of the tour at the bottom of the blog….
Some highlights for me of the tour were:
–watching Planet Earth in my bunk
