This one time, we went to St. Louis and played a very short notice gig to 4 people while the world series played on a giant screen next to us because they couldn’t turn it off because St. Louis were in the world series. Sounds pretty bad – but then, while I was uploading videos for another band (The Thlyds, as it happens) this popped up in the related videos bit and you know what, it sounds really good and I think we did a good show for those four people and hey, we played a gig in St. Louis and we’d never done that before. I’m sort of proud of that.
We’re probably going to start asking you to pay us for things in the next few months – I hope the fact that we did a good show next to a sport-filled big screen to four nice people in St. Louis suggests that we’re the kind of band you’ll be willing to support when we do.

My friend was there/set up the gig. It’s one of my biggest disappointments that I couldn’t fly over to see my favourite band in my favourite city.
I was the one who recorded you, and I appreciate that you didn’t play like “fuck it, there’s only four people here to see us” because it meant a lot to me. It was the only time I could have seen you, and I’m so happy I did. It made it worth the 1.75 hour trip back to St. Louis during the week when I had to work the next morning.
I’m not sure if you had fun, but I sure enjoyed it. 🙂
Oh, and there are three more live recordings from that night on my page. My favorite is “Our Daughters Will Never Be Free” with the intro including a Star Wars quote by you.
