First time I ever saw Particle, was in a small place called the Joint in Clemson, SC. Stood right in front of Molitz the whole time and after the show was basically floored! I knew right there he was legit. That was maybe 5 or 6 years ago and now look at him. Blowing up!!

Anyone catch Particle's centeroo stage at 7am on the grass at the 1st Bonnaroo? It was epic! EOTO is always a great time as well. Can't wait for L.A.!!!!

Hell yeah Particle still rules!!! I'll be at the LA show man! I dont understand how UM gets all the love when Particle still throws down! Should be interesting with Kang in the mix!

Molitz has a lot of variety on his plate over the next couple weeks. It's gonna be a treat to have Tim Palmieri of The Breakfast in that mix come January.

Bonnaroo #1 morning fest--I sort of remember it well: it was right after the late night moe with Brandon Bayliss shredding Rebubula (I think the Keller incident also just finished?) and I saw Kang dancing to the Particle and was talking to Rob from moe when Kang grabbed his geetar to go shred with Particle! What a positive scene!!

The end of 2008 run should be sweeet.
