Yes, we scoundrels that toe tap, haven't updated a journal in a coons age. Let alone our web site, whoops. I guess you can say people are busy with thier lives, although, a lot of us really are not. Well, at least the guy who's writing this now hasn't been. But he'll wait for his band to come along so we can start doing work and stuff again.

I really don't know when the next show is, but I can assure you, we'll get some. October sounds like a month for shows, but thats obviously too far away. So we'll keep you posted ok journal nerds?

Love Richy and all of TTS

** SHOW **

This Saturday June 25th, we are playing the battle of the bands in Prospect Heights Illinois. Let me explain to you how we got this slot...

Prospect Heights has had 4 band nights earlier on this year. In those 4 band nights, 6 bands would perform each of those 4 nights for a chance to get a slot at the battle of the bands. Each night a winner or two was selected to go to the actual battle. The nights they had where like tryouts to go there. In 24 bands total, we where chosen as 1 out of 6 bands from each night to go and perform at the actual battle. We are happy to know that this oppourtunity came about. Each band that places gets a cash prize, and the top 3 bands get a chance to go to the state (national battle of the bands?) August 20th in Springfield Illinois to compete.

We are asking for you guys to help us out and come out to support all of the bands that are performing. Keep in mind, every band will be playing at there best and this is a time that you shouldn't miss. The bands that will be performing are...
