dear los angeles:

next thursday we’re throwing a private show of the #asuckerforpumps experience for all of the folks that couldn’t make it. if you’re a fan and would like to be in attendance please tweet #asuckerforpumps along with your favorite song for the album.

winners will be selected at random.

seating for the  private experience will be VERY limited.

There It Is

And if we don’t fight
if we don’t resist
if we don’t organize and unify and
get the power to control our own lives
Then we will wear
the exaggerated look of captivity
the stylized look of submission
the bizarre look of suicide
the dehumanized look of fear
and the decomposed look of repression
forever and ever and ever
And there it is
