Re: Local bands inserted into Reasons Not to be an Idioit

Any thawts about the recent (AWESOME) show in Baltimore? I've posted that this was certainly one of the best shows I've seen in my 47 years on this planet. I was very friendly with the OLD 9:30 Club. Frank rocks. By some bypass to the rules of heaven, both Frank and my hockey posse will be in Montré...

Kismet Dans Montréal

I've tried to be a good person. I work in a prison and try to treat inmates with dignity. I donate whole blood every other month and platelets on the off-months. I love hockey and try to see a game in Montréal each year, even though I live near Washington DC. I am learning French to improve all aspe...

Re: Song for Josh

Bev Mac, I lost my dad to suicide when I was 9. I'm 47 now and it's still a little hard. Sometimes I listen to Lucinda Williams' song, "Pineola". She captures that I-want-to-hit-someone-but-I'm-not-sure-who feeling I get as a surviving family member. "Sweet Old World" and "Little Angel, Little Broth...

Weakerthans AND THS?!

Hoodrat is one of my favorite THS songs. Cool beans.

RHPS - Thanks

Thanks for the "Time Warp" nod in "Four Simple Words". Rocky Horror was a big part of my late teen years. Funny but I saw RHPS again last night. It was me, the mrs. and a bunch of kids. They knew none of the lines. It was jus me yelling the 50 or so lines I knew. I suppose that was my 1:45 min. of f...

Re: Old DC Venues

Ah, NSA. I work near there. With the big boys in Jessup... Tommy Keene... he was one of the DC area's New Wave claim to fame. His "Songs From the Film" album got a lot of attention and a lot of play on HFS. My favorite track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj6MrlIWols Oh, Hammerjack's. *sigh* And Fr...

That's awesome. I assume you are a DC local. Here's an awesome Zeppelin review from the Laurel Racetrack. The writer's name is revealed at the end.

Re: Old DC Venues

I saw quite a few shows at the old 9:30... The Pogues about 3 times. Great venue. Just saw Frank tonight at Ram's Head and am still stoked. Just a fucking great show. I've been to 6 so far, and tonight was the most energetic. Thanks, Frank and the Souls! So, Ram's Head was my first show. Frank comp...

Re: The Weakerthans Are Gone But We Are Not

problems of an over zealous and regretful poster. Okay I quoted myself in an edit and tried to fix it. I'm over 40. Do I get a pass with this stuff?
