In September 2006, a few months after the release of Carnavas, Silversun Pickups toured the US with a band called Viva Voce. One of my archived interview snippets was actually a snippet from that tour's tour diary, featuring rambling from both Brian and Viva Voce's Kevin Robinson.
The blog these were posted to is long-defunct, and while most of the text survives, not all of the images do. Of what I was able to rescue, here you go. (Of note for anyone interested in the whole Ship thing like I am is one of the photos of Brian at a table talking to the members of Irving. Guess they were in on the tour too, or maybe it was a local stop.)
