These guys played with us at the immortal Japan-nite show, and then a few months later gave us a call saying they were going to be in Canada and that they wanted to stop by for an encore show down here! We neglected to correct their geography and booked the show. Along with being seriously amazing musicians, they are great house guests and a lot of fun!
