Two Birds / One Stone Tour Announcement

Well. We were all waiting, weren't we? Yes. We were. Because one round wasn't enough, and because we missed y'all, gosh darn it. Also, because Obama said we have to. We (Dave and Matt, of course) are SO excited about getting out and seeing a million* faces, and rocking them all. Or is it seeing a million vases and rocking the mall. Let's digress.

SO - that said, we will be out doing round two of the Two Birds, One Stone Tour. Should be a blast!! Below are the dates.** We would love to see any and all of you out there! As Buckwheat so eloquently said - "been a nong time since dem days!"

Amen, Buckwheat. Amen.

-Matt & Dave
