wavves vs. the british railway council

Pete is also documenting Nathan Williams' trip for us via Polaroid machine; here are some of his shots from the first leg of the month-long tour:

Our good friend Will Abramson (of Keys 2 the City fame) hooked us up with the premiere of this clip of WAVVES playing new song "To the Dregs" live at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco. Look for this song to be released soon on 7" via PPM. Shot by Will and Nate Chan (of Takeaway Shows) for their new project, Yours Tru.ly (coming soon):

WAVVES plays a few shows on the East Coast this week before embarking on his first European tour. He'll be in TX in March for SXSW.
