Karl's Corner - 08/18/2000
Lots goin' on here... every day is just packed with errands, meetings, rehersals, projects, construction...the tour is gonna feel like a vacation! Anyway, thanks to all of the concerned emails from Minneapolis area fans, we learned of the 18+ situation at First Avenue... So we called the promoter and learned of the special curfew laws there. Not to be outdone and break our all ages promise to the kids, we forced the club into letting the band do a second, early show at the same club, for the all-ages kids. Right on!
...The band has been having meetings with possible produces all this week, and has a lot more meetings scheduled. There are a lot of interested producers, and its been very difficult for the band to narrow the feild down. The guys have been pulling their hair out, trying to make the right decision! They had really hoped to choose one before going out on this next tour, but unfortunately that doesnt look like its going to happen. Hopefully the answer will become clear somewhere on the road. Wish us luck...
