For the longest time, we felt like we didn’t really fit in at the only venues that would book us. All the little rock clubs around the country where the beer fridges were louder than our show. It was hard to appreciate it at the time, but almost 10 years later it seems obvious— those clubs are where the most dedicated music fans in the country are, and it’s where the foundations of our relationship with our fans was laid. Once we started playing theaters, our ticket prices went way up and a lot of people we recognized from the clubs couldn’t afford it any more. In releasing The Only Ones, we wanted to self-produce, self-record, self-release and give it away for free, and tour, just the two of us, to some of the places we got started and charge hopefully reasonable ticket prices. It’s a short one, but these should be really fun nights for everyone who can come. And for us too.
