So we came into some trouble last night with a venue called The Oasis in the Charleston, S. Carolina area.  But first, check out this babe that JP brought home last night:


Score! Buuuuut back to the story: basically, some ‘miscommunication’ occurred between the promoter and the venue owner and we ended up without a show, gas, and a place to stay. People- there’s no greater feeling of dread to experience on the road than feeling a van full of frustrated men find out they drove hundreds of miles only to get passed aside without an afterthought.  So we did what any self-respecting band would do: we called up every contact in the area and begged. “Can we play at your show tonight? We’re pros. Promise. No? Ok.” :click: “Hi. I’m in a band called the young maths. Yes. Like Mathematics. M. A. T. H – No? Ok, some other time. Thanks” :click: “Hi, we’re in a situation right now, we’re a band that got dropped like a bad habit and – alright. No, I understand. Yeah, we’ll call that person, thanks”.

But all hope was not lost.  The staff over at the Tattooed Moose totally sympathized with our situation and not only offered us a show this Tuesday (one of our off days), but also put us in contact with the promoter for a huge Christmas concert going on last night at the Pour House. The concert promoter ended up being hella nice and offered us a closing spot on the roster, which we humbly accepted and made the best of. Here is the remaining chunk of our tour:
