After 56 shows on European soil, we are posting-up in Sri Lanka for the holidays to write songs and new episodes of Crusty Adventures. Meanwhile, the countdown to the OZ leg of the tour is quickly approaching. This mission includes 12 tour dates in the land down under, including MONA FOMA FEST in Tasmania, curated by fellow Milwaukean and Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie.

Time is standing still here on the southern shore of Sri Lanka. We're staying next to the equator for three weeks with our pals at DriveThru Surfcamp (even though we suck at surfing). Three days ago a local dude got eaten by a crocodile, so I think I'll just to hang out in the swimming pool. Last night was our first Sri Lankan show with the surfcampers and local beach chum, followed by prompt party execution from our gracious hosts. Before shipping out for OZ, we play here one last time at the Surfcamp's New Years Eve Super Party. Time to regroup and unwind in paradise after the big haul through Europe. Looking forward to a few weeks off and our debut appearance in Australia.
Much respect, Brett & Danimal
