Lester might be the only person to refer to his band with the word "slackers," seeing as how its touring schedule has seen it play shows with Elefant, Viva Voce, Brendan Benson and Nine Black Alps, and its road schedule stretches through the end of the year.
As if just to prove how down-to-earth and un-self-conscious the band is, Lester gleefully relays a recent tale of tour-bonding self-deprecation included.
The Pageant, (6161 Delmar Boulevard) Sold out.
"We went to Disney World the day before yesterday and we got the Splash Mountain picture," Lester says. "It's pretty awesome. We got the whole log or whatever the fuck it is. It was everybody in the band and all of our crew. It's the entire tour, making goofy faces on a ride. 'Here's all of us, looking like jackasses!' You can't try and be cool on it. it's not going to happen. This one is a particularly good one, we're pretty stoked on it. We all look like extra jackasses."
