Aquarium Drunkard diversion

check out our diversion on Aquarium Drunkard. A.D. is an incredible blog out of Los Angeles that is extremely supportive of the Athens music scene and good music in general. the "diversions" feature is a recurring interview they run with their favorite bands about subjects other than playing live music and recording. the Gift Horse diversion is about the state of the Athens music scene from our perspective and how we are glad to be a part of it. check it out!


thanks to everybody who was so good to us on tour. thanks for coming to see us play and letting us sleep at your house. thanks for the books, fly fishing movies and dim sum. thanks to Father Bill of the St. Francis Mission in Philly for the delicious coffee cake. thanks to Michael for the live camel at University of Maryland. thanks to Twin Tigers for everything. thanks to Blaze for killing it on the drums for both Gift Horse and Twin Tigers back to back most nights. thanks to Bambara for letting us borrow him. our friends in Athens and everyone we meet on the road collectively make it possible for us to do what we do. so thank you thank you.
