Hello. It's my first day home from the Gator Bait tour with Joe Staats and Brian Zeolla. I have to say, the shows were overall a blast. I was especially impressed with some markets we had never hit before. Orlando was rad. Jacksonville was fantastic. Montgomery was super fun and filled with southern hospitality. So thanks to everyone who showed up, especially you maniacs that sat in the 40 degree rain in Gainesville, and high fives to everyone who let us crash along the way.

This month now goes from zero to insanity within the span of 4 days. I will not be performing any sets during SXSW, but you may see me on the streets of downtown quite a bit. Some exciting things are afoot. More details as I am allowed to talk about them. Sorry to be all cloak and dagger but if it comes to fruition it will be a mighty cool thing. The Altercation Records events will be in full swing of course, with our 10 year anniversary bash slated for March 20th (Dead Boys' Cheetah Chrome and LOTS more rock that) and the annual Altercation Punk Rock BBQ hitting on March 21st. All free.

In terms of future shows I'll be doing some festivals upcoming. Stand Up! Records' Akumal Comedy Festival in Mexico from April 14-18. Loudfest 2015 in May in Bryan, TX. Memphis Punk Festival in June. Joe Sib and I will not be appearing at Punk Rock Bowling in Vegas this year. We both hope you all have a drunken blast. Jay Whitecotton and I will be heading out on a run in June as well. The fall will see more festivals and another teaming with Mishka Shubaly, as we continue our bromance across the nation.

That's it. TheRoadPodcast is close to hitting 20K downloads, which is amazing. So thank you for that and for continuing to show up to the gigs. Cheers for now. - JT
