family slide show

i remember first reading about this little indie family vaudville group in the new yorker. it's comprised of dad, jason, mom, tina and daughter rachel.

several years ago, while living in seattle and running a dog walking business, dog-walking with Rachel, Tina found an old slide projector and a box of slides at an estate sale from a family trip in Japan during the year of 1959.
When Tina suggested to Jason that he use the slides in his music, Jason then wrote a song to accompany the slides. The song was titled "Mountain Trip To Japan, 1959"
the end result is this, kooky, catchy little act.
i have yet to see them in concert but would love to.
