We got pranked today.



These wound up all around the venue today. They were convincing enough that around 5pm I asked Neil "So what's the deal with the party?". I went over and helped at the merch booth for about an hour, during which time I got asked the same question by 100 different kids.

"Sorry, there is no party."

It got pretty frustrating when kids didn't believe me when I told them it was a joke. Some thought I was withholding the info because I didn't deem them 'cool' enough to join. Yeah right! I'm the biggest nerd out here buddy, I'm in no position to judge!

At dinner I realized that a lot of the other bands on the tour saw the flier, and most didn't realized it was a joke. I'll be the only one here, in the venue, on the bus tonight. I'm prepared for knocks on the door all night wondering where the party is.

Anyway, I came to find out who perpetrated the prank. Now we gotta think of a good way to get them back. Any ideas? Please give me some, we gotta get 'em good.

Besides that, the show was spectacular today. I love seeing bands play home town shows in the middle of tour. It's like just as the shows are starting to blend in to one another, here comes an over the top, high energy show with, while maybe not the most kids watching out of any show, they're at least the most invested kids. The pressure was on today, before they even started they had 50 friends and family watching from the stage. I ran over my checklist 100 times, handed off the guitars, and crossed my fingers.



Everything worked and was more or less in tune. Mission accomplished.

Also today I watched Less Than Jake and thought about the first time I ever saw them. I was standing in the same spot on stage, but in Gainesville, FL at The Fest. Good times.



See you soon,
Max

You were incredible! Best show of the day. I'm wondering how well the "Up the Pucks" shirts sell in other cities. Very clever... as usual.

Horray for The Fest! Too bad Florida is like 18 hours from West Virginia.

I hope you do get them back. Maybe mess with their lighting design, or tell them their time slot has been changed and they were supposed to be on stage 10 minutes ago.

i was there. i drove all the way to kentucky just to see you guys play in your hometown. you guys were sick. it was massively worth the drive.
honestly, i didnt think that the flyers were a joke and almost stayed an extra night to go. haha now im glad i left.

either way, you guys were amazingly inspirational. best show ive seen by you guys yet.

i met one of your old friends, Marcus Nati, by randomly walking into his tattoo shop: Stay Gold. haha i wasnt planning on getting a tattoo but i did anyway and he explained to me how you guys were old friends since i was wearing an anti-flag tshirt. he has sent me files from a band that you and him were in called "1234" i believe. either way, that music is amazing too haha.

even though im not from pittsburg, i still got one of the "drop pucks, not bombs" shirts because they are freaking awesome haha.
i still have a paper that i'd like you to read if you ever get the chance. thanks so much. ill see you in cincy!!
