The Photo Atlas prepares to dance its way across the country.

Going a week without pay is serious business for any of these young musicians; despite merchandise sales and continual gigging, no one is making a dime from the music. "All the money we make as a band goes back into a band fund," Shirley explains, "to pay for our goddamned van, recording and merch."

They'd better buy a map, too, since the Photo Atlas plans to tour the country fairly extensively this winter and on into next year. For Andrews, that's far above and beyond what he'd originally hoped to accomplish. "The only goal I ever had was to play a packed club," the frontman confesses. "And that's already happened."

"So now he puts out no effort," Threlkeld quips.

Andrews gives Threlkeld a knowing smile.

"Yeah. Now I'm coasting."
