    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?

    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.

    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!!!

    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 :P )

    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!

    so, the consensus is go :mrgreen:

    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 ?? :idea: :idea:

    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… :/

    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.

    if that fails you could guesstimate based on the no of bands appearing before the 3 headliners, right ?
