didn't you also attend a Travis concert w/ Phil and I in Minneapolis during your undergraduate years? at the Quest club, I think it was?

No, Shawn, I didn't make that one. But I did go to a Tilly and the Wall show last summer, which I've inserted to update the list. That concert was the hottest (literally) show I'd ever been to, as the venue's air conditioning was broken.

The hottest until tonight, that is. The Granada was ultra hot and super steamy, and so was the rock.

I knew I had seen ween at some point in my life. Thanks, Dan, for reminding me when (approximately) and who they opened for.

You saw WEEN when you were in high school? That was Pure Guava era, right? ugh, I am jealous.
A few years back, I thought that a ween t-shirt might be sort of an asset in reeling in fine looking, interesting males... But the last time I saw them, I thought maybe it might only draw in hairy smelly males. I never bothered to get a t-shirt to test my theory. I think maybe the moment for the ween t-shirt lure has come and gone. If you can think of a tshirt that would have such power over fine looking interesting males, please pass it my way.
