Portia and I just got back from Japan where we had the best time ever! P-Vine (our exclusive label partner over there) put on a Kill Rock Stars showcase in Tokyo with Deerhoof, Xiu Xiu, Mika Miko, and Panther. All the bands played amazing sets and the crowd seemed so excited. We all had a few days off in Tokyo and it was a blast to hang out and wander around. We went to Harajuku and saw the crazy rockabilly dancers: and went to a Bangladesh festival, wandered around so many amazing Blade Runner type alleys, ate amazing food (ume rice balls were my favorite), and got to meet some of the nicest and most generous people around. Thanks so much to Koki, Hiro, Aya, Hama, Masa, Kana, Monica, etc for treating us and our bands so well. I really felt like the luckiest person in the world to be working with so many great people. Oh and here's another weird thing - it seems Caralee and I are twins and never noticed it. Here's the proof:

Weird right? It's our German and Scottish blood I guess.
