Sorry for the LONG delay but we're about to blow up the scene with some killer pics, vids, and stories from down under. AND for once we're not talking about Marnie's vagina but, in fact, the great down under of Australia! Oh and we just got from an action packed weekend at ATP Festival in Minehead UK. Holy Toledo what a blast! Stay tuned........

Jasmine from No Joy has been chasing Fig around this whole tour. Finally our little diva surrendered!
Garland from No Joy passed on to Vince one of the best secret weapons for combating drumming-induced perma swass (that's short for swamp ass). Wear swim trunks! Haha!
"What I wouldn't give to lay on this couch with my pants off!" -Nithin
That's as far as they'd let Nithin go.

Boy did we really get the red carpet treatment in Dayton OH! First off Nithin's parents fed us a home cook feast of delicious Indian food. The show was fantastic and we were so impressed to see people rockin out so late on a Monday night. Venue was located within a stone's throw of two porn shops which was perfect for keeping Marnie busy during all the pre-show downtime.
Thanks to Nithin's buddy from bak in the day, Ian, for taking such great care of us!
NITHIN'S HOME TOWN WAS SO FUN!
THE HIGHLIGHT WAS GETTING TO HANG OUT WITH KELLEY DEAL!

Since nothing ever seems to go smoothly on an M. Stern tour, it seems par for the course that we would be rejected entry at the Canadian border. But we would never let a little thing like arrest warrants get in our way. So as punishment, Marnie and Nithin left Vince and his DUI record in Niagara Falls to stare at the waterfall for 16 hours and contemplate the repercussions of driving under the influence. Marnie and Nithin then made their way to Toronto to play a gig as a two piece. There were many eventful public bathroom stops on their way. Nithin's stall was invaded by a mentally unstable man who desperately needed help finding toilet paper. In two separate trips, Marnie had to hop naked from stall to stall in search for t.p. Meanwhile, Vince doesn't even use public bathrooms because he is a rugged mountain man who prefers the great outdoors.
Without Vince, Fig drove most of the way
BUT when Nithin and Marn got there, they got to meet The Raincoats, hang out with their friend Vice, hang out with the awesome girls from Grass Widow, and finally got to meet No Joy. Nithin was pretty psyched about the guy/girl ratio!
Marn even managed to fit in an interview!

Rehearsal wouldn't be complete for Nithin without 16 HANDLES
We got really fucked up off our massive rider!
Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, our friends see each other at a flaming lips/ bachelorettes show and send us some sweet pictures We wish we were with them! kliph, Jonathan, Courtney, and Rose! WE MISS YOU!!!!

THESE SHOWS WERE THE COOLEST SHOWS IN THE WORLD!!!
NO ONE PUTS ON A SHOW LIKE THE LIPS, SO WE WANTED TO THANK THEM FOR LETTING US BE A PART OF IT!
Our friend Jennie Warren came with us to the guitar clinic and one of the shows and took some of these awesome. Thanks Jennie!
Kliph left the best welcome message for the band when they arrived at the green room for the shows:
"You're Dead Bitch"
Kliph we just had the greatest time with you, and are all so glad to have met such an awesome friend.
We were all in awe of your drumming, friendliness, and over all terrific personality.
Thanks again for being so welcoming!!
We talked to Wayne about the part of Marnie's body that she wants to freeze if she dies so it can still be used later by her boyfriend. Surprise surprise... It's her vagine!!
Wayne let Marnie shoot some confetti out before the show. She wanted to shoot it up her VAG, but we all knew that would make for a messy soundcheck.
