Warped goes to Fresno

ONE supporters at Warped

Brian and I got a nice day off in Portland yesterday – we laid low, enjoyed the rain, caught up on work then hit up Powel’s bookstore and got some good food. Brian got to experience Voodoo Doughnut too, though it seemed to have left him partially traumatized.

Our teasing of cold weather over the past three shows came to a cruel end today in Fresno today. Our volunteer crew made up for it though – Kim, Monica, Samantha and Derick saw our Myspace posting asking for volunteers on Monday and came out with little notice. Big thanks to Kim for rounding up people for us! They did a killer job – hundreds of Fresno punk rockers are now involved with ONE because of them, and they managed to survive the brutal heat. We met some very cool fans today as well, people that are doing some pretty impressive stuff with ONE in their community. We also got a ton of people signed up for our volunteer list – so next year, no excuses Fresno, we want your help!

The frightening ONE pinata

We also got to make our ONE piñata today. It’s not exactly what we’d call a work of art, but, it made us happy. We’re using it at the non-profit fiesta party that is happening tonight. We can’t stay late, have to hit the road for the Sacramento show, but it’ll be nice to get to hang out with our tour mates before everyone goes home this
