Hey kiddo!

Boy, it’s been almost a month since I last wrote you! I’m so sorry!

To be honest, I’ve been taking a little time to breathe! After Love Bites, my first show ever (opening for Carpenter Brut! You can watch it here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib473o_-5-o), and then a followup show, I just needed some time to sit back and take a 10,000 foot view of things. Normally around this time I’d be closing in on my nest release, but all these extracurriculars have been keeping me away from that. And even when I do have the chance to sit down and write, I’ve been struggling with some serious writer’s block.

But there’s good news on the horizon! I’ll be opening for TWRP in June! All you Atlanta people, be sure to come out for that one! It’s going to be a heck of a fun time! All ages, so you can bring the grandkids!

Speaking of that show, I’m currently stressing out way too hard over the set list. I want to mix up the songs I’m playing, but picking the right ones has been a real chore! I’m actually writing this very letter as a way to avoid making decisions. Hooray!


I’m trying to get on the Perturbator show in September, but so far it looks like he’s not looking for any local support acts. We’ll have to see how that one plays out. I’d certainly love to play Terminal West again. Those guys were awesome. (Details on that story in this old letter: https://vampirestepdad.com/sendy/w/Dd8kkqL3nNKL5eg0fuLsxg)

Oh, check out what your sister, Jalysa Leva drew!

Won’t that look awesome on the fridge, right next to all the others? Man, you kids make me so proud!

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know what’s going on with your dear old step-dad. You should write me some time! I’d love to hear from you.

Talk to you later!

Vlad, your Vampire Step-Dad
