Days five and six of YOU CAN BE A WESLEY's tour. We played in Nashville with some phenomenal southern guitar-rock bands and, to our luck, ran into an old friend from Boston who put us up for the night. The next day we had off, so we once again took the bikes off of the back of the van and explored the city. I'm posting from a cafe in Nashville, during the middle of what feels like a monsoon.
It's that time of year again. SXSW is ready to rock and roll, and once again, the Phoenix is all over it. In addition to our latest online tour diaries, detailing Liz Pelly's trek to Texas with Quilt and P. Nick Curran's road escapades in You Can Be A Wesley, we're sending eight writers and photogs to Austin next week to capture everything that happens.
A whole year? It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year since my 2011 SXSW tour diary. What a whirlwind, y’all.
I am pretty psyched to be traveling again to Austin with one of my favorite-bands-turned-sweet-friends, QUILT.
The span of time from SXSW2k11 to SXSW2k12 has been a pretty transitional time-span for this caravan.
Wesley Everyday is a video/photo tour diary that follows the bands You Can Be A Wesley and Beast Make Bomb from Boston to Austin.

Over the next several weeks, Dom and I will chronicle this adventure via photo and video. Tonight, Dom and I sit side by side on a couch in Colombus, Ohio following the aftermath of a college party with altogether too much wub-wub.
