I’ll be in Pigtown Saturday. I’ve never seen Gaslight Anthem. They might be the best band (right now) I haven’t seen.
I don’t think I’ve seen The Mighty Mighty Bosstones since I was 14. It doesn’t mean I won’t sing along to every word of “Royal Oil.”
I’ll be “Grabbing A Bud” at Hooters Towson Friday 7pm-8pm. Then I’ll IMMEDIATELY be trying to talk my fiancee into hitting PPL so I can ALSO sing along to every word to far too many Eve 6 songs.
I will probably post about J. Roddy Walston a time or two on Facebook Tuesday. You can thank me later.

If you couldn’t remember which Star Trek movie this one was, it was this one.
If you’ve forgotten which superstar’s brother Charlie Murphy was, this one. (Language NSFW.)
