Year End Wrap Up

So that does it for 2011. As usual, Fun Fun Fun Fest was an amazing time all around. Huge high-fives to everyone who came out to our set, it was epic and awesome as always. Big ups to Brian Posehn, Youth Brigade, The Damned and everyone else that hung out and killed it that weekend. As you've heard, Danzig was an epic douche. What a bummer.

After a much needed break to escape into the Texas desert with my wife and dog for the holidays, I'll re-emerge in the new year with a theater gig on January 21st @ The New Movement. This show will be more story-based, as I've assembled some of my 'rock pals' to perform some hilarious road tales. Scheduled to appear - Billy Milano (MOD), Mike Weibe (Riverboat Gamblers), Mack Lindsay (Vans Warped Tour) and Blake Midgette (Pageninetynine). There will probably be some 'very special surprise guests' on this show. I'll be headlining, it starts late at 11:30 pm, and is totally BYOB. Only about 65 seats available so don't miss out.

I'm working on a possible 'island getaway' mini tour for February that would prove crazy, drunken fun, but more on that if it comes to pass. I've got two shows set for SXSW 2012 with some AMAZING guest bands. Free beer shall rain like...well, rain. More details as it gets closer.

I've got a new t-shirt design that has been moving well. It features an 'Evil Dead'-ish skull with the slogan "I Kill For A Living", two color yellow and white ink on black shirt. It will be at most 2012 shows until sold out, and should be up on interpunk.com soon as well. Also, the long in the works Altercation Archival book is nearing the finish line (I hope). Pre-orders will include a free download card containing audio interview tracks with Fugazi, Mike Patton and Flaming Lips.

There will likely be some southern Altercation Tour dates in spring 2012, and then more solo touring with bands and at festivals for me into the summer. Whew, I'm hungover just thinking about it.

That's a wrap. Thanks as always for your support, it means more than you know. Happy holidays, drink lots of nog and see you in the new year. - JT
