So an untimely (and adorable) blog highjacking by Miss Venter has ruined the surprise i've been planning to drop on this blog for weeks. Yes - i've come to the USA to play with Johnny Foreigner, supporting Los Campesinos! You may be wondering why I didn't do a "Hooray for humans" post about this wonderful news two weeks ago. Honestly this is just so awesome, i was afraid that if i told anyone I'd jinx it. So I kept it to myself, didn't jinx anything, flew here and now it really is happening!

Since arriving on Saturday afternoon I've been hanging out in New York with the wonderful Noah and Lexi. NYC seems fantastic. As I write, I'm on a bus, on my way through to Philadelphia (see: explanation why my USA banner looks beyond retarded). Tonight we're playing a bonus show in Philly at the a venue called Sprinkle Kingdom. Sounds more like a Super Mario Zone than a venue to me - understandably I'm super excited to play there.
