...and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?"

Nothing, baby ... nothing at all. That's why I come here.

Thanks.

My comment in a previous David Lowery post is now more appropriate here:


"Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart is one of the greatest albums of all time.

I have been listening to it since 1988. In 1989, when I was 14, Camper Van Beethoven played the Ritz in New York City, and I got in by calling the club, telling them I was my Dad, and saying it was ok for them to let me in. A bouncer advised me to do this.

I saw David Lowery open for Reverend Horton Heat last year, here in DC at the 9:30 Club. He was in the balcony section after his set. I went up to tell him, while the music was playing, how much his music has meant to me and for so long. And then I realized he must be completely deaf--I had his attention, but he couldn't hear a thing I said."

This is probably like saying your favorite Stones record is "Dirty Work," but I really like "Key Lime Pie," if only for Sweethearts.

Man. One of the best shows I ever went to in my life was a music/street fair that they played in 1989 in Milwaukee, of all places.

I've still got the phone book in my memory box that the violinist put his autograph and what I reckoned to be his CA phone number in. I never called it. For all I knew, it was fake! Actual rock star-type dudes only went after supermodels, not short, stubby 19-year-olds, right?

Nah, you're okay. Dirty Work is inexcusable. It's more like saying your favorite Replacements record is Don't Tell A Soul.

My favorite Replacements record is Don't Tell A Soul and my favorite CVB record is easily Key Lime Pie. Never underestimate the power of '120 Minutes.'
