I could go to the show and see Sebadoh, J and Sonic youth but hace to drive 4 hours, take off half day at work, probably stay over and if not drive another 4 hours back, and spend like 200 easy. Or I could see Sebadoh in Brooklyn with the guy from Love as Laughter and then see J in May with Cat Power, and leave my wallet recovering from the $40 t-shirt I just bought. Opinions?April 19, 2004 at 1:36 pm #101260
I think you just answered your own question by asking it. I would stay and catch J in May and then see him again with the fog in (my intuition says) November in New York.April 19, 2004 at 1:52 pm #101261
money permitting, i’d do it all :aliensmile: … but then again i’m a libra, so decision-making is not my forteApril 19, 2004 at 1:53 pm #101262
hey annastefka, does your intuition say anything about a london show ?April 19, 2004 at 2:45 pm #101263
Gosh, I just think of J as so New York now. When was the last time J was in London?
NOT to distract from AMMARINGNYC’S question:
I love the fact that the first two suggestions are different, you say go, I say stay. He saw J at the shoe store and in that club on Rivington street and he can again in May, thats a pretty good record!!!April 19, 2004 at 2:59 pm #101264
hey ammaringnyc, didn’t you say you saw J playing over 9 times last year ?! lucky New Yorkers
the Smith College show appears to be something special, also Sonic Youth are playing there, and J & Lou playing on the same evening…
ok, the Fuck Cancer Benefit is also special, so if the money’s tight just take that one. But maybe you even find a way to see both events? …you’re about to win the "luckiest FreakScene member" trophy, anyway (just kidding )April 19, 2004 at 3:12 pm #101265
shit man, im coming from maryland to the show.
if you need a place to crash, it’s taken care of.
if you need a ticket, i have extras.
if you smoke cheeba, it’s taken care of too.

OKAY Rambleon, I’m a gemini so I often change my mind. After reading Anthony’s post I would now say to AMMARINGNYC "GO"
You have a place to stay, that is the biggest expense, It would be great for both Anthony and ammaringnyc to meet up. "Cheeba" is a big expense also. You still will be out a few hundred dollars.
Hey guys find Pete (Kracked873)at the show and take a photo of all of Y’all and post it HERE for us to see!April 20, 2004 at 6:05 am #101267
so, the consensus is go
annastefka, to answer your when was j last in london question : j was last in london with the asheton, asheton, mascis + watt stooges tribute show in dec of 2002 … before that it was a solo + acoustic show in nov 2002 + before that it was sept of 2002 – another solo + acoustic show … 2002 was a great year for london j fans like me …
this kind of gets me thinking though … maybe there could be a part of this site (or the jmascis.com one) where there’s a list of j’s shows ??April 20, 2004 at 11:21 am #101268

I would go overseas to Sweden to see a J Mascis show. But my situation to live here in Finland is a little bit different than yours.. J Mascis visits Scandinavia maybe once in 8 years or so… :/April 29, 2004 at 3:46 pm #101270
Well now I kinda want to go but the show starts at 4 and I can’t take off work so I would have to drive in rush hour traffic. What time do you think J, and Sebadoh are going on.April 29, 2004 at 3:51 pm #101271
can you ring or email someone right now … like the college or the charity + find out ??April 29, 2004 at 3:53 pm #101272
if that fails you could guesstimate based on the no of bands appearing before the 3 headliners, right ?April 29, 2004 at 3:55 pm #101273
1. what would be the absolute earliest you would be able to get there ?
2. is there any way you could get out of working tomorrow ?
