There is no place in the world like Venice, California. ¬†That is why we live, breathe, drink, sleep, ride, laugh, and eat in Venice. ¬†It’s the edge of life. The fine line between living life or having life live you. The awesome gangsters at Venice Acoustics and Yo! Venice teamed up with us at the center of the universe, the Venice Boardwalk to tape a raw acoustic live take of our song Never Too Late. The song embodies everything about Venice, CA. Check it out here: Yo! Venice features Mind the Gap
While traveling to Sri Lanka and India in December, we met the amazing team at BalconyTV/Delhi and played a few songs on an epic balcony as the sun was setting on the great city of New Delhi. Aside from the daily masala chai, riding motorcycles on the beaches of Goa, getting lost in Mumbai’s Crawford Market, or kissing the Taj Mahal, this was one of our favorite moments of 2011. We love India. check this out: BalconyTV – Mind the Gap
