It’s Bloomsday, June 16, the day on which the action in the book Ulysses took place in 1904. We took Kinch as our band name because it’s the nickname of one of the book’s protagonist. It made quite an impression on me when I read it, even though I understood very little of it.
So, but, then, here’s a free song we did some months back as our present to you on this Bloomsday.
See you soon.

I am here right now, in Los Angeles, where I have been for a few days now. I am not right now standing before this mirror, no. I was there two nights ago. Next Saturday I will have been away from this play where I was — I will have been in Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Boise, Portland and Seattle. And then I will be back in Los Angeles. And then Phoenix. By the end of June I will be traveling through the deep south, making my westerly way to San Antonio, where I will be on Independence Day, deus vult. Before I will have been in San Antonio, though, I was in New York and places around New York four weeks. It will have been great.
How will you have been by July?

So that’s the end of the residencies for now. We played in San Diego three times in January, were on-air at KWSS 106.7 three times, played in Phoenix four times, and in Los Angeles five times. Not a bad amount of shows for not really being on tour.
When we got back to Phoenix from our final L.A. show last week, we had a few days off and then played a show for the Alliance of Independent Media Stores convention, which was being hosted by Kimber Lanning of Stinkweeds. It was great, and we made some good, new friends, like Eric of Criminal Records, a man after my own heart due to his love of Infinite Jest.
Now for February:

Stone Brewing Co., while not the purpose of our trip to California this past week — the purpose is to get famous and rich, and it’s going really, really well, thanks for asking — it was certainly one of the highlights. We wouldn’t have even known to visit the brewery, which sits a little bit north of San Diego, except for our tag-along this week — an editor for the Phoenix New Times. He’s writing a story about our residencies for next week’s paper, and came to see the shows in L.A. and San Diego.
It was highly idyllic and the beer was, as expected, delicious. Wayne bought a growler of it to bring home with him. The trip to the brewery was only slightly marred by Brian’s coming down with the horrible sinusageddon that I’ve had for the past week or so. He took a Mucinex and hurried for the van, where he promptly passed out on the bench. It reminded me of another time Brian just couldn’t handle mid-day revelry in Dallas, and repaired to the van while we had overpriced margaritas at a Tex-Mex place. A group of sorority girls (the place was near S.M.U.) toddled past the van saying, “Oh my God — look at that scary rapist van…. Oh my God … there’s someone asleep in there! Get in the car! Get in the car!”
It is a scary looking van, though, even with a bunch of nice looking guys standing in front of it:
