Many thanks to Commissioner Stone who slaved away weeding, raking, and mulching most of the day yesterday. He is my lawn wrangling hero.
Tom, Brit, and I wandered over to Temple’s Ambler campus to see Denison play in what seemed to be their student center. It was a super early show with Denison headlining at 7pm. After, we kidnapped him and somehow ended up playing trivia at the Drafting Room later in the night. As the Sleepers, in celebration of Denison’s forthcoming ep Are You a Sleeper?, we finished in the middle of the pack. He was also able to confirm the Pitchfork rumors.
