my all-consuming hobby

hmmm, according to my muzak page, i attended 36 shows in 2003. that works out to about a band every 10 days. good lord. that also means i saw a lot of shitty opening bands.

how many did you go to scotto?

    i did miss one, but the one i missed was arrested development so i guess that’s understandable.

    i had to edit my post – 36 shows. 15 is pretty substantial. i wanna see the list.

    mayor mcca is very……interesting…..
    he calls himself “The One Man Band Singing Sensation.” it’s pretty cool to see him play. he’s this skinny guy with really long blonde hair that covers his eyes that plays a whole lot of instruments. he’s got an electric and acoustic guitar, harmonica, kazoo, bass drum, keys, and a clarinet. he also wears tap dancing shoes. he got up on top of the bar and did a little dance for the crowd. he also tells pretty cool stories. i think he probably did some sort of hard drug a lot when he was younger, and now he’s screwed up for life. he’s rather strange.

    yeah, action makes is laura’s brothers band. i only went to see them once. the other two times they were just playing with another band that i wanted to see. i didnt even know they were playing until i arrived. they’re ok…but nothing special.

    i think it’s safe to say that you’ve seen more “big” bands in one year than i have in my entire life.

    i’ve seen barenaked ladies a few times, but only once since they got huge. spiritualized (not really “big”, but big-ish)? does great big sea count? or blue rodeo? cake is genuinely big i suppose. cold play? sam roberts? sars-fest sorta helped my cause i suppose.

    anyway. that’s my story.
