The Aristocrats’ Live DVD Taping For Last U.S. Shows Of 2012: June 2-3 At Alva’s Showroom

We just finished up our quick tour of the U.S. midwest and midsouth, and we’re taking a quick breather before playing our two last shows in the U.S. this year…which we’re taping for a live DVD! If you’re anywhere near southern California, or even if you’re not, it’s not too late to make plans for this coming weekend and be a part of what we hope to be something resembling a historical event:
Saturday June 2, 8pm
and Sunday June 3, 4pm
1417 W. Eighth Street
San Pedro, CA 90732
All ages OK
We also want to take a second and say THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the shows in Nashville, Louisville, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Columbus, Charleston, and Charlotte. I know I speak for Guthrie and Marco when I say we had a great time visiting some cities in the U.S. that often get overlooked when it comes to touring bands like us. Y’all made it work.
We also want to thank Julie and Rodney Cord of Blue Mouth Promotions. Without their tireless efforts in booking and managing the tour, this would never have happened. Go like them on Facebook already!
OK then. We’re gonna rest up for the DVD taping shows. See you soon, I hope.
P.S. Hey Europe: We will have some exciting news for you soon.
The Aristocrats (Guthrie Govan, Marco Minnemann, me) U.S. Midwest/LA Tour Starts Really Soon!

It’s true. Click that link if you don’t believe me.
As I’m writing this I’m still on the road with Kira from the last tour (see posting below). One more clinic in Ft. Wayne, IN (at Sweetwater HQ) and then I get to go home for a week before Guthrie and Marco fly in from Europe to Nashville, and the next adventure begins. Could be worse – Marco hasn’t been home since early March. He went right from our Aristocrats European adventure to a South American/European tour with Steven Wilson, and then he’s coming straight back to us for the US Midwestern run. So I shouldn’t complain, really.
Oh, right, the dates:
* F 5/18: Nashville, TN – The Rutledge
* SA 5/19: Louisville, KY – Zazoo’s (The New Vintage Showcase)
* M 5/21: Indianapolis, IN – Birdy’s
* T 5/22: Cleveland, OH – The Tavern (Beachland Ballroom)
* W 5/23: Columbus, OH – Rumba Café
* R 5/24: Charleston, WV – The Sound Factory
* F 5/25: Charlotte, NC – The Double Door Inn
and let’s not forget the DVD taping shows in Los Angeles right after that:
* SA 6/2 and SU 6/3: Alva’s Showroom (live DVD taping!)

And stop what you’re doing right fugging now and go buy Brendon Small’s Galaktikon here. Really, I mean it.
Did you know our minivan now has nearly 255,000 miles on it? We seriously need to do a commercial for Toyota (it’s a 2000 Sienna XLE, for those of you wondering).
