    The Reptilian // The Paseo  

    "And if I’m lucky I’ll go out smiling. 
    I’ll just drop dead with my friends beside me singing, 
    "who thought life could be this exciting?" 
    You ain’t the one living out your dreams. 
    It’s the other way around. 
    Constantly fucked but always pushing forward. 
    I’ll always have your back, we’ll live like this forever. 
    Let’s not talk no more.”

  7. The waiting game: The husband and wife team behind Flannel Gurl Records make a point to connect with fans despite their full schedules

    Waiting is a bitch. Whether you’re in line at the DMV, at a job interview or waiting for any sort of test results – your final grades, blood work, anything – the (non)action of waiting can make you want to tear your hair out. As co-founders of Flannel Gurl Records, husband and wife team Kimmi and Jonathan Ashwell know the waiting game all too well.

    “It’s kind of hard to say exactly what we do,” said Kimmi. “Whether it be talking with the pressing plant or printing company, discussing things with the bands and designers, packing orders and mailing them off, making sure we can get song streaming, booking time for future projects or waiting on, well, everything. A big part of the label is waiting. Waiting always leads to stress.”

    Since starting the label in March of 2010, Flannel Gurl has worked with bands such as Dads, CityCop, Trust Fall and Kittyhawk, putting out vinyl and a personal touch into everything they do.

  8. The Truth Behind Merch Rate

    carloslovesyou: Hey guys now that i’m home from tour and have some spare time id like to write about something i don’t believe many people know about.

    In the touring world there is something called “merch rate” and its pretty much a percentage of money the venue or promoter takes from an artist . The reasons for…

    This is worth reading, it couldn’t be more spot on. Usually I kept two separate counts, an actual count of what was sold and a fake count to show the venue to pay a lesser merch rate.
