Gratitude and thanks go to: Our parents for supporting us beyond belief and pulling us through in dire situations, Joe Sims, the Billy Christopher gang and Izzy Burgwin for inspiring us to no end, Sam Pike who is basically a member of Stick and Poke now, any one of the amazing promoters we've had the privilege of meeting, anyone who has ever booked us a show or helped us book a show and our spectacular fans, whether you're from tumblr or have seen us at shows or attempted to communicate with our awkward selves, we graciously thank you.
Lauren: I would like to thank Alison Soldink for endless reasons, my wonderful parents for supporting me without question, Jenny Chen for listening and understanding the insanity that is my mind, Melissa Rebelo for creating a safe, amazingly awesome space for me to flourish in and of course, Nolan Ephgrave for being a huge pain in the butt, but always providing me with comfort and always encouraging me to simply enough, be myself.
Alison: I would like to thank my parents for their tireless love and support, Lauren Boyko for being in a band with me and putting up with me for all these years, Jess Montebello at Thigh High Clubhouse, Caela Butt and Declan Proctor at the Arcade, and Siesta Nouveaux for giving us places to play and putting on shows, Jon Creeden, Jesse LeBourdais, Tale-Teller Heart and anyone else we have shared the stage with for being fantastic musicians and friends. And lastly but certainly not least, anyone who has ever come to see us play, made/and or bought merch from us or has hung out and played Magic with us. Thanks for bearing with us for the past three and a half years.
We love you all, from the bottoms of our tiny little awkward hearts.
