12-15-2008, 12:34 PM
so this morning at work, i get a phone call from an unfamiliar number. usually i try not to answer them but under today's work circumstances, im in correnspondence with a lot of people to get things done... but i digress.

anyway, i answer the phone and the person on the other line says "hey! is this Almost Islanders?!?!?!"

me: yes it is
him: hey man, its John from Pau Hana
me: *gulp*
john: hey i got your number from flo and i was wondering if you guys would be able to open for us at the world beat center on feb 13th.


ok so long story short, i called everyone one by one and got confirmation, called john back... AND ITS ON LIKE DONKEY KONG!!!

i am sooooooo excited! we never thought we would be opening for Pau Hana (one of our BIGGEST influences), let alone at the WBC!!! one of the places id been wanting us to play at for a while now.

so its set.
