Hired by some great peeps to play a private show in Mexico last night! It was a great time! Did a couple private gigs / house shows last year as well and they were all soooo much fun! Gives me the opportunity to play a ton of songs and requests that I am able to play in my acoustic set but we may not be able to play collectively with the band yet! Played so many more tunes not even on this list. It was great! I plan to do a handful more of these around the west coast and southwest in the upcoming months. Serious inquiries hit up the booking email here on Facebook or in the bio on the Instagram. See you all again soon! #TheAtaris #KristopherRoe #KrisRoe #Acoustic #PrivateShow #CrypticSlaughter #Thrash #Mexico #Tijuana

Our friends MxPx recorded a cover our song “San Dimas” You can listen to it here: https://youtu.be/cQ5eW0p1AGo I am honored and beyond flattered. I have a deep mutual respect for Mike as a songwriter and consider him, as well as the rest of MxPx and crew some of my greatest, longtime friends. I met Mike, Tom and Yuri for the first time in August of 1997. It was the first actual tour The Ataris had ever embarked on. A west coast tour with The Vandals and MxPx comprised exclusively of only the tiniest backwoods D-market towns that most other bands never play. I immediately felt a kinship with Mike, Tom and Yuri as I came to realize we were all of similar age but also came to find that we shared a mutual love and admiration for ALL and Descendents. I grew up in small town Anderson, Indiana. They grew up miles away in Bremerton, Washington. But as the days rolled on I saw how our lives were also parellel in so many of the ways that truly matter. We were both raised on that same urgent spirit for searching out the deepest cuts of music and art. And for reaching beyond the tiny confines of the places we called home to follow a stronger passion, dream and aspiration for creating our own vivid truths. To explore this world as we know it and share our stories and scars like those same artists who inspired us. When I was listening back to this song for the first time last night, ...after Mike emailed me their version. It made me think back to the time when I actually first wrote this song. I remember when I got home from this very tour, I was homeless, living in my van. I was uncertain of the future and what was to come to next. There were sadly some deep serious issues with other members of the band that I knew were just not going to work out. But even through all of that, There was this sense of hope, of optimism. I had just went out, traveled the country playing these little songs I wrote and made some incredible memories with with these new friends, these bands that I respected and admired and I had the best time of my life doing so. I had packed up everything I owned and had moved over 2,000 miles to do what I loved and all I knew in that moment is that I wasn’t going to let anyone or anything hold me back from doing that. That even in that moment where there were many great obstacles ahead of me, I was doing what I loved. I was following my heart, charging forwards towards the chaos and uncertainty and most importantly making my life what I want it to be and not settling. So with all of those thoughts fresh in my mind I sat down with my acoustic guitar, in front of my friend’s apartment on Garden Street in Santa Barbara and started writing out all these scattered thoughts that would almost immediately become this song “San Dimas” It’s a very surreal and cool full circle moment for me, all these years later to hear my friends cover this little song I wrote about all these memories of our first tour together and the first moments of my second life when I moved to California. Thanks again Mike, Tom and Yuri. You are and always have been a big part of The Ataris journey and I am beyond thankful to call you all friends. And thanks to all of our wonderful fans for listening, for allowing me to continue to do what I love and for the years of continued support! Much love. From these rainy streets of California. -Kristopher STREAM or DOWNLOAD NEW AND EXCLUSIVE MUSIC FROM THE ATARIS HERE: Http://theataris.bandcamp.com MxPx #MxPx #TheAtaris #SanDimas #SanDimasHighSchoolFootballRules #KristopherRoe #KrisRoe #MikeHerrera #TomWisnewski #YuriZaneRuley #BoysOfSunmer #BlueSkiesBrokenHearts #Pokinatcha

Our Tour van was unfortunately totaled last night by some stupid person who was involved in a high speed chase. They ran straight into oncoming traffic and slammed into me head on at maximum speeds. Nearly killing me and my dog. It was beyond terrifying. I definitely feel blessed to be alive today. We started a GoFundMe to hopefully help cover the costs of purchasing a simliar used tour van. So that we may continue making a living and playing shows. Anything at all you can do helps. Obviously it's the holidays so if you can't donate we more than understand. But if all of you can at least share this post then that alone is beyond helpful. Thank you so much for all of the kind words, love, support and generosity. From the bottom of my heart. Merry Christmas to all of you and your families. Please hug them all today and never take one second for granted. https://www.gofundme.com/the-ataris-tour-van-destroyed-by-high-speed-chase?pc=tw_dn_cpgntopnavlarge_r&rcid=r01-15451708322-92522d5ca8164af3

Tonight I was an innocent victim of a high speed chase. Some lunatic flew around the corner in Hollywood. He was being chased by multiple police cars. Traveling at high pursuit driving recklessly in a supposedly stolen car. He slammed straight in into me head on at full speed. He was traveling so fast that he sent my huge, several thousand pound Van from the outer left lane into the parking lane. He was traveling with such force that the center engine console detached and shot forward into the van ramming into my leg. I feel lucky to be alive. I am beyond shaken up. My leg, back, neck and side are in pain. Gracie my dog went flying out of her seat and I had to dig through the scattered mess to find her. I located her. I felt her. She felt lifeless. I thought she must be dead from the impact. It was the most helpless feeling. .... but I couldn’t believe it, she was ALIVE!!! I am in tears thinking about it. All the while the van was smoking and we couldn’t breathe. I thought the van was on fire and going to burst into flames at any second. I couldn’t open my door so I crawled into the back seat with her in my arms. The side door as it was pinned against a parked car we had been slammed into. So I quickly lowered her out the passenger window and onto the hood of the car next to us. I hurried and crawled out the window behind her the best I could. It’s at this point I immediately hear the sound of multiple police officers shouting forcibly at the passengers in the other car. MULTIPLE GUNS DRAWN. The entire street now blocked off with police. It is in this moment I realize what’s actually going on here. THIS IS AN ACTIVE CRIME SCENE?! They start shouting, “GET BACK! GET BACK!!” I am so confused, disoriented, dazed. Just clutching my dog in my arms. Asking her if she is OK, hoping that nothing has been broken in the wreck. I quickly hurry away from the scene. I sit on a curb where a homeless guy offers me a blanket and a chair. It’s nice to know that compassion exists in this world. I’m super thankful to be alive tonight. Merry Christmas. Never take one second for granted. Here’s video from the NBC4 LA news. https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Hollywood-Police-chase-Ends-in-Violent-Crash-503001711.html

Thanks Dallas. You were such an incredible audience. Reminded me of all the reasons I love playing music, why I loved going to punk rock shows, getting in the crowd with everyone singing along like one big family and most importantly why I picked up a guitar to begin with. Felt like some of our early shows in Denton, Texas. To re-emphasize what I said on stage. This is the email I sent our booking agent after the show with the promoter CC’d. This rings true as much today as it did the day I started this band. TO MAKE THIS CLEAR AGAIN: Tell the promoter I don’t want his money. Give our cut to our brothers in The Queers and The Riptides. I wouldn’t take a penny from him ever. Show was great, crowd was great and we did completely fine without him. Integrity and respect are much more important than money ever will be. Much love - The Ataris

One of my best friends growing up just lost his house and most of his belongings in hurricane Michael. His name is Jason Carpenter. He is a great dude and sadly in a helpless situation. Despite an inspector officially deeming his house unlivable. FEMA did absolutely nothing for him and somehow said that he was not approved for the assistance that he should rightfully receive!? He started a GoFundMe page to try and raise money to get his feet back on the ground. If any of you could help out, or just share his post, He would greatly appreciate it. Thanks. And to any and all those affected by the recent hurricanes. We hope that you and your family are all safe and able to get the help you deserve. Be well. https://www.gofundme.com/hhjmcw-hurricane-relief-assistance?fbclid=IwAR3aqGa06NS7OlTgrjKOearRjnd0TJITK4ZgsivJGjz61Y4_2OfFkUVlLd0

Very much still looking forward to giving it a go and playing a few songs at the two year anniversary of Riot Night Phoenix this weekend! Sat. Sept. 8th - Scottsdale, AZ - Rock Bar Come out and sing along! I have a few super limited The Ataris shirts left over from the recent "So Long, Astoria" 15th anniversary tour. I'll have them for sale at the show. Grab them before they're all gone. More big announcements coming soon! Thanks so much for all the continued love and support. All the positive vibes mean the world and are very much appreciated. See you all again soon. -Kristopher TICKETS: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/riot-night-presents-the-two-year-tickets-49045517463 or visit: www.riotnight.net Facebook: @riotnight Instagram: @riotnight Twitter: @riotnightphx

Hey everyone. Kris here. As some of you know from my previous post, I've been super sick for a couple weeks now. Went to the hospital last week in Spokane, they took a chest X-ray and I was diagnosed with inflammation in my lungs, definitely exacerbated by the smoke in the pacific northwest due to the Canadian wildfires. I was given a breathing treatment, some antibiotics and a new inhaler and figured that'd be the last of it. Pummeled my way through the Seattle and Portland shows to the best of my ability, then we come to our Redding, CA show this past Friday, I sang my way through about half the set, could barely breathe and felt like I was near passing out. For the first time ever, I actually had to walk off stage mid set and went immediately back to the ER. Well this time they did an X-ray they told me that they noticed some fluid in one of my lungs and that I have Pneumonia. Figured with a few days off and I would improve but it's definitely super slow going. Went into my doctor today for a check up and the doctor said that under no circumstances should I attempt to play these last couple shows. So as much as I often love to overdo it and push myself beyond my limits, this time I unfortunately need to err on the side of trusting the words of my doctor and not play any shows again until I can fully kick this pneumonia. It's definitely no fun and I would much rather be onstage than dealing with this crap. Hopefully you all understand. The Santa Ana show tonight 8.29 at Observatory and the Las Vegas show tomorrow 8.30 at Bunkhouse are postponed until further notice. The good news... We will be trying to figure out some dates where we can hopefully make these couple shows up before the end of the year. Tickets will be valid for the new date or if you would like a refund, please contact your point of purchase. In addition we will also be announcing some "So Long, Astoria" 15th anniversary dates for the rest of the U.S. very soon. So for those of you who have been asking, stay tuned for that. Have a good one, thanks again for your understanding and for coming out and singing along. See you all again soon. Much love, Kristopher
