The other big news since I last blogged is The Picture and the Frame have been in the studio with Raymond Richards: badass producer and awesome guy. He's played with and produced some amazing local bands, including Local Natives, and now he's producing our record. We tracked on Saturday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and heard a mix of "Are You Really (Gonna Be Mine)" today. It sounds so rad. I can't wait for you all to hear it!

Thursday night, we played a show with a band called Owls, who are awesome. Trumpet AND trombone! I guy came up to me at the bar after we played and said, "Four strings. No mercy." I like it. It felt pretty badass to go straight from a recording session to a show. Of course, it felt not that awesome to have to get home by midnight because I had to work at 7 am. Oh well.
So that's what's up, going into the weekend.
