“I haven’t slept in several nights and I’m not tired Who protects the ones I love when I’m asleep? Though there’s little I can do, I say a prayer That when the wolves come for their share, they’ll come for me”
This is Tender Loving Empire, and they’re awesome. I’m wearing the yellow “Rainy Bearded City” shirt, and I also own the “I Love You” shirt (which is also my favorite shirt), and several other items (including some they no longer have in stock).
Right now they just have t-shirts, but they make other clothing items as well (I have two hoodies from them, which are ultra comfortable). Check them out if you want.

this is a very well-shot, well-recorded video of Typhoon playing the song that I recorded them playing at the Dirty Dog this weekend (and which Ryan identified as a song of which no studio version exists).
This is a great video, but I think the performance that I saw was a little better, and I wish I’d shot the whole thing.
This band never ceases to amaze me. This upbeat, sing until you can’t sing no more song represents them to a tee. Their lyrics spew straight out or your throat that leaves it begging for more. I can safely say that Jared Mees & The Grown Children are my favorite band because of that exact reason.
