Wurst Joke in the World

Hey, you want to hear a funny joke? Then don't ask Spencer and Rebeqa about the "Second Trunk" joke. It's not funny.

...but they sure seem to like to tell it anyway.

Thank you Patrick Nevin.

Pat was one of the friendliest people in Leavenworth - which is saying a lot. He stayed through nearly all of the two hours we played in der Hinterhof bier garten, keeping things lively with some friendly heckling. Pat even stood-in as our photographer during the set, getting some great shots of us with our guest drummer, Jedidiah Wick. Unfortunately Pat had to miss the last couple in our set, but he came back later that night after work to drink beers with us and fellow musician Mason Reed, who took the stage immediately after our set.

Not only is Pat a guitar player who makes his own tie dye, he's also shares Rebeqa's wicked pun-centric sense of humor. We're looking forward to taking him up on his offer of a backyard BBQ and river-tubing float next time we're in Leavenworth.

Thanks for snapping our pics and whetting your whistle with us, Pat. See you next time we're in town!

Rock out With Your Saurkraut: on tour in Leavenworth, WA

We've been on the road for a few days through Eastern WA for our mini-tour and it's time to check in. We were joined for two of the shows by Jedidiah Wick on drums and Pauline Wick on backup vocals, which has been pretty rad.

One of the highlights of the tour was Der Hinterhoff in Leavenworth, WA. (Yes, Leavenworth the Bavarian themed village in the mountains of Washington. Witness:)

We did a 2 hour set in the Der Hinterhoff beer garden:
...then, as promised when we booked the gig, we went tubing down the flooding, swollen Wenatchee River. Seriously, we've been looking forward to this all summer and was completely worth the wait.

Of course the river was so fast that we had to bail out of the float right before the whitewater rapids...which left us to hike through the blackberry bushes with our tubes. It wasn't so bad except for Jedidiah who'd left his shoes in the dropoff van. We'll spare you pictures of the damage....but we'll totally post about it on the blog because it was damn funny.
