Mark: I recently got off the road for a fantastic but much too short run with the maestro Dj Abilities and friends wasted no time heading West to begin a run with the sultan of scratch and lord of Fake Four-dom, Dj Halo. In fact... I've slept in 8 different states the past 8 nights. Yowzers... Anywho.. Here are the cold hard facts of the next two weeks. Please tell your Aunt Mable in Moab or your weird stoner Uncle in Portland that Prem and Halo are coming to town! As always I appreciate the support greatly and hope to catch you soon!
