    Well, I have no spare room at the moment, because my daughter has STILL not moved completely out, but if you can live with a sofa bed, I’ll run it past Mrs. Monty, Mule….

    🙂

    M3C

    P.S. – To all of you that want to take the train to the concert, the 4,5,6 stop at Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall. You walk 3 Blocks North (Past the court houses on your right) and then left, 3 blocks west. Or, if you want to go from Penn Station, just take the A train Downtown to Chambers Street, and walk North to Leonard, about 4-5 blocks. It’ll be left onto Leonard, and then you should see it from there.
    Parking is NON-EXISTENT or $40 garage, so you have been WARNED…

    Thanks for posting all the info, Monty! I’m driving some of our equipment up there, but most of the band is taking the train up there and it’ll be useful to let them know how to navigate when they’re up there.

    We’ve actually booked a couple more shows in the past couple days. We just accepted a last-minute invite to appear at Joe Squared Friday next week with a local instrumental/jam band Oxter. We’re doing “an intimate, acoustic set with Nikc, Steve, and Ryan of The Dirty Marmaduke Flute Squad.” Mid-July we’re visiting you fine New York Folks (with new material in tow), then we’re back at Joe Squared at the end of July. Then in October–and this is the show I’m looking forward to the most–we’re playing the Sidebar here in Baltimore with a band called Pissnipple. Look them up on MySpace…Unforgettable.

    And we do this how?? They have a web site, or do we just call them?

    From what I can tell, you can purchase tickets in advance on their website:

    http://www.knittingfactory.com/show.php?event_id=115365

    I have no idea what to do from there, or if other fees are involved which may make the purchasing of tickets online/in advance a moot point. It may be easier/just as easy to visit the club and purchase the tickets there, in advance. I don’t know.

    Thanks to mule, BTP, Thrym, Monty, and Brak for braving the City That Doesn’t Sleep! Word is Vlan had a hand in that too…So thanks, man!

    Next up for DMFS…two shows on the Eastern Shore: Rehoboth Beach, DE, and Ocean City, MD–on the boardwalk, no less! 😀

    …So when will DMFS be in YOUR town?!?!

    Yeah… aside from BTP passing out on a lawn chair in my backyard (and the 3:30AM McD’s run that gave him food poisoning) everything worked out fine.

    STILL trying to catch up on sleep, though

    Not giving us food because we were car-less at the time was profiling and profiling is wrong.

    Although 2 drunken fools and one sober one jumping up and down trying to trigger the pressure plate in the drive thu was damn funny.

    Your mom lives there. OH!

    …Perhaps you meant Rehoboth Beach, Delaware? It’s on the watery side of the state. All I know is I keep driving until I can’t go east anymore, and then head north to all the “festive” bars.

    We’re playing at a lesbian bar called the Frogg Pond. 😀

    So when are we DM’ing together again, man? It was a shame to not see you at the show; online idiocy will be the next best thing.

    So.

    Damn.

    Sick.

    I never knew the human body could hold that much… material.

    Observations from my trip:

    Markshire hats are not wind resistant to 75mph.

    No one wants a Red Bull handed to them in their car from another car at 75mph.

    Hot dogs from ice cream stands are bad. BAD I SAY!

    Brak makes me laugh.

    T drives the one pedal method. One pedal MUST be pressed at all times. With extreme prejudice.

    I would be doomed in NYC’s public transit system by myself. Unless the nice girl in the white dress was there. She was helpful.

    I like Thai food. I had my first genuine stuff, and I’ll be back. I blame the hot dog.

    I like small clubs for intimate settings. It’s even better with a good bartender.

    The DMFS attracts bewbs. Don’t ask me why, or how. Just accept it.

    I hadn’t moshed/pogo’d in a long time.

    George W. rocks.

    I met Janis Jopplin. She moshes too.

    Drunk women stagger out of cabs and fall down 30 feet later at 2:30 am in NYC. I at least made it a couple of blocks.

    Good friends will drive in to the city and rescue you.

    Good friends will accept you HAVE to have McDonalds at 3am, and take you through the drive thru in their car because those jerks won’t talk to people that walk up.

    It was very pleasant in Pleasantville Saturday. Nice enough to sleep outside.

    On lawn furniture.

    Apparently sleeping friends are good for throwing combos at.

    Good friends have tolerant wives.

    I mention the way T drives? Maybe it was my condition. I need a call on this one from a third party.

    I hate hospitals. Even ones with pretty nurses.

    IV’s aren’t bad going in. Coming out… not so much. My arm is still purple.

    Not eating for nearly three days will make you weak.

    Next stop… Baltimore?

    Perhaps it’s because we have a song that specifically requests it…?

    Works for me, anyway.

    Also, anyone interested can check out photographs from our NYC show at the band’s personal Flickr page:
