The Problem with Driving a Beater Van…

December 8, 2008 by  

Is that when the radio craps out and you’re sitting in traffic, you end up with five dudes in their late 20’s singing Billy Ocean. This, in turn, sparks a heated discussion as to whether Ocean is saying “Caribbean” or “Caribbune”. I’m almost positive that Caribbune isn’t a word. Anyway, if you ever hear someone […]

I’ve Got a Confession to Make…

December 4, 2008 by  

I just found out last week that DeLange spells his last name with a capital ‘L’. I really had no idea. Known the kid since college and he’s my roommate. As far as I’m concerned you’re allowed one capital letter per name. Don’t even get me started on hyphens. Since this band is nothing more […]

Back to Desmond’s – January 9th, 2009

December 2, 2008 by  

It wouldn’t be winter without a January Just the Tip gig at Desmond’s. I guess I could say that about any season, considering we play this bar more than any other in New York. But as much as we love to rag on this place, deep down we all secretly long for its slightly flat […]

10-23-08 – The Day the TIP Almost Died

December 1, 2008 by  

Driving home from a gig in October, the TIP van nearly ran head first into a speeding fire truck on 14th St. Luckily the JTT van, which normally handles about as well as a freight liner, somehow managed to tighten up and avoid the fire engine during an evasive panic swerve. The aforementioned swerve may […]
