Lying Low + Food Inc.

So we got back from our first national tour about two months ago. We put somewhere between nine and ten thousand miles on the tour mobile in about six weeks and had an incredible time. Now we're living with parents in the DC area since we broke the bank on our, teaching some music lessons, working on new material and plotting a move to the west coast, probably San Francisco. We're going to try to do another tour through the south and the southwest to make our way out there and then just stay.

We're going to start playing shows again this month. Charlottesville, DC, possibly New York, North Carolina... Check out our MySpace page to see what's happening.


On another note, we've been reading a lot and watching a bunch of documentaries about pretty maddening things. The process of educating ourselves about our role in the world has made us really mad, and frustrated but it's also made us realize that we have to accept personal responsibility for our own actions. Everything we do matters and has an impact, even if it's a small one. This documentary, Food Inc. just came out on DVD this week and it is amazing. Everybody needs to go see it right now, for real.
