New Spins for the Old Drunk

I may have embarrassed myself at the Spins last night.

Me: I don't know if this means I have a drinking problem, but if I have one beer then I just want like twelve more.
Alexa: That sounds like a drinking problem to me.
Me: Oh.

Anyway, here is what I spun at the Spins:

  1. Gray - Heartless Bastards
  2. New Drink for the Old Drunk - Crooked Fingers
  3. Across The Line - Scott Miller and the Commonwealth
  4. Trouble Doll - Matthew Ryan
  5. Charango (Isla Negra) - The Dad in Common
  6. Sangre de Stephanie - Lifter Puller
  7. Sound System - Operation Ivy
  8. Quarter-Life Crisis - The Cardinal Sin

Last Week and Next Week

My Dinosaur Jr review is up over at HWTS.

What I didn't mention is that the friend who went with me to this show was the same sidekick for the last Dinosaur Jr show I saw ten years ago. The Boathouse, where we saw that show, has shut down now. Norfolk has a new venue called the Norva. I've never been there, but I can tell you the boathouse was kind of a weird place. It was actually on stilts on the water--an actual boathouse. During shows that were not 21plus they would put up a rail running perpendicular to the stage and they called one half the beer garden. When shows would get crazy the bouncers would be stationed along this rail and as kids tried to crowd surf or jump over the rail, the bouncers would pummel them.

Next Saturday come celebrate five years of internet goodness. The five-year anniversary party.

Saturday June 9 at the Turf Club. 9pm
