It’s been about three years now since Trent’s band, Two Headed Spy, officially broke up.
It happened not long after we bought 3675 and moved to Oakland, but it was in the works for a while. The guys had been together for years, writing and performing and recording and dedicating themselves to their music way more than your average weekend warrior, but those “grown up life things” had just started to happen. You know – big jobs and real relationships and family and houses and stuff.
No one was really surprised when the end came; everyone might have been a little relieved, even. Still, it was the end of something important in all our lives: especially in Trent’s and my relationship. The band was a huge part of our early days together, a tremendous creative outlet for Trent, and you’ll have a hard time finding a bigger 2HS fan and promoter than me.
It should therefore come as no surprise that when we bought 2381, Trent and I instantly agreed we had to find a weekend to “get the band back together” there: all the now-grown-up members, with their now-families. And that just happened this past weekend, nicely coinciding (roughly) with Trent’s 36th birthday.
I know the whole weekend made Trent super happy; hopefully the guys had fun, too. We plan to make it an annual tradition, and I’ll continue to play my superfan role.
And since NO ONE ever took more pictures of these guys than me, I dedicate this mash up of then + now to Trent, Troy, Matt, and Justin.
I know it’s only rock and roll, but I liked it. We all did. Always will.
