I know how you feel! I've been packed for weeks. Actually I am test packing. Most everything fits. I just gotta find room on the Sporty for me.

You actually would have impressed most of them...several of my neighbors ride. One has a custom Sporty, and he's gonna join us on Monday. He has a shop right here in my hood. He's doesn't chime in on the forum much, but owns about 10 bikes all different makes and models. Eric's his name, so Joe can you add him to the list? I'm not sure if they'll join us, but Mischeif, Bobo and Tenmoto live in the area too.

Some info on a show at The Shed on Friday nite...


http://www.smh-d.com/uploaded_images/hackensawboys.jpg
What: Hackensaw Boys

When: June 26, 2010 - 8pm


Price:$10, $5 ride up

You see them in the early hours of the morning walking hotel corridors, or boldly traversing rush hour streets. They are sincere, polite but talkative men with instrument cases. They admire the local scenery and appear unfed. By day they seem incapable of action but at night they step onto a stage and with taut fiddle bows, worn cutlery and dirty strings bring you a focused, vibrant and joyful sound. They are the Hackensaw Boys — and they are in your town.

After seven years of relentless touring throughout the United States, Europe and the U.K., the Hackensaw Boys are being recognized as one of the most exciting groups on the diverse Americana music scene. The group’s second release for Nettwerk Records, (Look Out) represents the recorded culmination of the Hackensaw’s unique vision: A celebratory but defiant sound culled from old-time mountains, backstage doorways and punishing drives through the evolving American landscape. Nine of the album’s 12 songs were written from within the group and sometime Modest Mouse/sometime Hackensaw, Tom Peloso, contributed two tracks. A pounding rendition of the traditional “Gospel Plow” rounds out the package.

The Hackensaw Boys have survived departures and arrivals, tribulations, blessings and, most importantly, each other. Add to this, thousands of nights in hundreds of clubs from Nashville to Bangor, from Los Angeles to Rotterdam and you begin to get an idea of the dedication and sheer mule-like tenacity that is the Hackensaw Boy ethic. So, whether you catch these guys on the road or pick them up in a store, be sure to check out the Hackensaw Boys — the perfect anodyne for the aches and pains of modern life.
