Hey Cale… sorry to hear about the 21+ venue. I hated that when I was younger! I had to miss Dinosaur Jr once for that reason. (Didn’t stop me from trying though) [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img] The more I think about their older stuff, the more I think I should go. And I’ve seen them three times in the past and they were great every time. Well… except maybe for when I saw them with Nirvana…somebody threw a shoe and it hit Gibby in the head , so they walked off before their set was finished.

Normally it doesn’t stop me either, but I doubt I will try this time…Now I have to go off topic and tell one of my stories [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img]

Last August Mudhoney was playing two dates, Aug. 30th in L.A. and Aug. 31st in San Diego (21+)…I went to the show in L.A., it was like a 3 hour drive from my house, and I met Mark Arm outside before the show…I told him I lived in San Diego and that I couldn’t attend the show the next night cause I wasnt old enough, so I had to drive up there to see them…He was very nice to me, and very apologetic…He told me to come down to the show the next night if I could make it and talk to him…So, of course I went down there and waited outside for him to get there….When he got there, I talked to him, and he sent the band members out 1 by 1 to chat with me for like 5 minutes, what a great experience, ALL of them were VERY nice guys…After Dan Peters came out and talked to me, he told me to wait and he would send Mark Arm back out for me [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] …When Mark came out, he said ‘come on in with us’, so I went in, and it was me and mudhoney alone in the club….Mark said since I wasn’t able to attend the show that night, they were going to do a soundcheck for me….So they played one song, and then security asked me to leave, and Steve Turner was like ‘No, he’s with us’…Then they played two more songs, and talked to me in between…They asked me what I wanted them to play, and they were very cool guys…

Sorry for ranting, heh

The greatest night of my life, it ruled [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
