Maryland

We hit Collegetown USA, which is in Maryland, way back on Sunday, and possibly experienced the highlight of the tour. We graced the airwaves of the campus, and only the campus (unless you were listening on the internet, which, of course, you were) of the University of Maryland, with a rough-hewn acoustic performance, culminating in a 15-minute gypsy vamp on "Two Ways Out" and our infections Nodzzz cover. Which maybe we'll upload later. It was kinda the ultimate dingy, totally unsupervised student-run college radio station, complete with grafitti-scrawled, asbestos-lined walls, and, y'know, actual students. There was even a series of metal bands that followed us (for instance, College Park's own Absolute Venegence [pictured below], who played live in the next room while we interviewed on the air, which means we had to talk really loud). Then we cruised into DC, watched the new Coen Brothers movie, and adjourned to a gay bar where they played nothing but Billy Ocean while Men In Black played on mute.
