Let the Sunshine In.

Bex Schwartz directed this video for "Fort Hood." We made it together, without the record company, because we wanted to get a message out there, about young people whose bodies and minds are still being damaged in Iraq.

Actually, by posting it here, and making it available on YouTube, and embeddable, we're bumming the record company out. They liked it when we showed it to them, and wanted to coordinate a whole marketing and radio campaign about it.

(And much respect to them--ATO are fantastic people, I'm grateful to be on their team.)

We were going to wait, and let them do their thing, but I watched the primary last night, and hearing Obama and Hillary snark at each other while this terrible nightmare is still going on, I realized I didn't want to wait.

It's up at AOL Spinner right now, and soon will be on Stereogum; we'd be humbled and grateful if you guys put it on your profiles; we'd like to get our message out. Thank you.

Bearded Strangers Open the Show.

Mysterious bearded men called Ron Blackmon are opening the shows on this tour with a crude refashioning of John-Zorn-style improv music games called Face Calls.

But which one is Ron? Are all Ron? Is Ron all?

First four pics by Fuzzy Gerdes; next two by Ilisa; last two by Matt Klenotic and Stacy Zurawski, respectively.
