While We're On Thrice....

826 Valencia is a cool little place in San Fran that is one of the charities that Thrice has given a portion of its proceeds to over the years, namely during the Vheissu era when 826 founder Dave Eggers (author of my favorite book of all time What is the What) did the album artwork. His writing workshop offers after-school writing help for kids ages 8-18, adult writing a literacy workshops, and yes....a legit pirate store.

Its a cool non-profit organization and you should take a look at what you can do with your time if you have any over summer (or you could just donate that paycheck), they also have a place in Venice Beach called 826LA which is closer to us.

Eggers & Thrice are some cool dudes.
