san diego parked outside gig

san diego parked outside gig

yeah we rock n we roll

whatever the fuck that means

i spend yesterday round at greg d’s house in LA

oh man what a beautiful serene pad

cactuses and trees

how very nice and civilised in that quiet street

oh yeah i could live there very easily

a haven from the madness that is only a few minutes away

the gig at the el rey is perplexing

we have some trouble somehow

the A notes seem to go nowhere from the bass  guitar

they seem snatched away by some acoustic gremlin

a few nights before it had been the opposite

the A notes had been booming like blooming muthas

whatever i don’t know

today i am in san diego

gig looks too small for us to me

i am but a soldier in the rocknroll wars

very good attendance at el rey

and a great crowd

we nearly transcended but not quite

why was that?

its strange but i don’t know

theres still a lot of unknown variables

its hard to get it perfect

still sometimes it happens

love from kilbey here wherever the fuck i am

san diego go go

    The show at the Chapel, SF sounded great. I recall Tim trying to get his drums sounding right at the beginning of the show, however. Great setlist. I was in the front row. Pure bliss. It was really a transcendental experience for me. Thank you for playing San Francisco. I took my friend to the show in SF and he insisted on giving the band milky way bars after you played the “Hit”. We thought it was good for a laugh. Hope you did, too. Thank you so much for the music. It helps me cope with life.

    You will have it all together when you get to my shows, and really, that’s all that matters. 🙂
    Glad you had a good time at the Dulli abode.

    Your show in LA was awesome. It sounded great to me! I wish I was in San Diego tonight.

    ‘rock’ is the beautiful constant stability your music gives us…’roll’ is the way it enables us to keep moving forward in hope and celebration

    I was also at the SF show at the Chapel. The show was so loud, so long, so energetic, and so much fun! I don’t know how you guys do it, night after night. It was exhausting just watching you guys work it on stage. It felt like everyone around me was mesmerized. I had forgotten how complex the songs were and how fast your fingers could fly across the strings. While so many other people treat music as a disposable commodity with a different favorite band each week, I feel so proud to tell other people that my favorite band is and always has been THE CHURCH!

    If your gigs over in the US are anything like the gigs I’ve witnessed, then you have absolutely nothing to worry about…..A chord or no A chord……
    Wish I was there
    Love always……

    I hope you guys won’t be too tired by the time you reach Atlanta. Should be a big crowd at the Atlanta show. I somehow lost my wallet at the last Atlanta gig. The next day I got a FB message from the guy who found it. Nothing had been touched. Church fans are good people.

    Hey Steve. I can relate to the bit about the notes going missing.
    I did a gig on the weekend. An outside one which are not my faves.
    Despite tuning up diligently things just sounded slightly flat to my
    ears but people I met after said it was fine. Maybe just being polite
    or their ears werent tuned. Being the front man in a band condems
    one to perpetual self critique as is my experience. The crowd doesnt notice these nuances
    but im sure you guys sounded great. The church has always had the
    best live sound.
    At my gig the very next act after us had total pa failure, so we got
    off lightly! Enjoy your tour. Rich
