So here I am. Like I never left ;)
Wow - I didnt realize its been over two months. Kind of weird.
So I took a break. Life is pretty damn good. I want to share again. Sweeet!
OKAY. Whispertown2000 has come up with a pretty cool concept. Rather then book a "formal" tour - they put up a post on their MySpace asking people to find them homes/clubs/trailer parks at which they could play. No money needed, just a place to sleep and enough in donations/merch sales to get to the next town. How supersexy is that? Hell they can't even be positive they are going to make it to the next town. That takes some serious courage.
I'm sure this has been done before, but I've never run across it - so I wanted to let all the kids out in Lullabye's Blog Land know. GO SEE THEM! Oh, and they're playing with a guy named Runion who also sings beautiful songs. Check him out here.

Side note - just found their obligatory fan site - lots of fans going nuts over hosting Whispertown shows. How cute ;)
Oh and since this is a Live Music blog - here is their gig from the Echo in Los Angeles in June 2004. They opened for Jenny Lewis/Elected and put on a pretty kick ass show. I think this was one of their first public appearances - I was pretty damn impressed.
