Caution: Rocking is Hazardous to Your Health
They need to start doing some sort of first aid tent. I’m hobbling right now. Of course a Mutemath show is a finely tuned ballet and I pride myself on that, but every now and then something goes wrong, and my God did I smash into something last night. Both my feet are throbbing. The roofs of my feet are killing me.

Too Many Bands, Not Enough Time
We got to see one artist last night by the name of Jeremy Larson, an up-and-comer. Ambient sort of soundscape, like a Cars-Sigur Ros mix. There’s a whole list of people I want to see, but it’s been really difficult to try to get to them. Whenever we get a chance to look up at the schedule we’ll catch something. We’re living on the edge.
