Downsides to the Information Age

This camera business is so difficult for us. None of us know how to hold a camera correctly and none of us know what we're supposed to talk about or film. We need a person on this tour with us that only mans the camera. I'm confident that something will definitely be able to be derived from this, but we are so collectively inept with all of this sort of thing.


We're in Vancouver right now and the shows couldn't be going better. The guys in both Wolfmother and Silversun Pickups could not be nicer and the audiences are very responsive.

Set list for those who couldn't make it:

Love is After Me
Save Your Ticket
Salute The Institution
Blood and Guts
End Of Everyday
Execution Song

Also, I thought of this great idea. If everybody reading this would immediately following the completion of the blog, call or email a friend and introduce them to simon dawes in one way or another. I realize you may not feel like it at the moment, but once you did, you'd probably smile to yourself and if you told me about it, I'd smile to myself and then we'd probably become friends and you'd most definitely be getting into all of our shows in your town for free. That's not a joke. But don't look at it as an incentive. See it as a reward. And the great thing is that if you don't feel like it, I'll never know.

Talk soon.

Dude, anytime you feel like giving me free tickets to your LA shows, I would not complain. (ESPECIALLY ones that cost $25, cough cough next Tuesday)

Whatever, either way, you guys know il'l always support you and pass around the Simon Dawes word as much as possible. I got your back.

Hell, I'm in Australia and have been listening to your boys for ages.

Be a doll and visit us down here? Spoke to your street team person and sending me fun things so I can spam Australia with Simon Dawes.

anyway, i really like this new blog thingy.
hope to see you soon.

Wee-eell, all my friends already know about Simon Dawes. I had no idea what to do with all the stickers I got so my friends are all sporting them on everything they own. Only two of them are actually "hardcore" fans like me though, and it just so happens those are the two that came with me and saw you live. Coincidence? I think not.

Hey, this is awesome, guys.
As sort of a blogger purist, I much prefer this to MySpace, it seems so much more personal... Thanks for getting one.

I tell everyone about you guys. You and Rooney are my absolute favourite current bands. And when I heard you guys were coming with Wolfmother I pretty much exploded at the very idea of such awesomeness...
Unfortunately, I can't make it to your AZ show this weekend, which sucks for me - but I really hope you guys have a great time and to see you all again soon.

- Allison
