I met J. Mascis last night at a Built to Spill show (Dinosaur opened for them). He was just kind of like, standing in the middle of the floor before the show started. We talked for a minute or two and he signed my shirt. He was pretty cool, he seemed kind of out of it though; then again, this is J. Mascis we're talking about.

Sean Lennon kinda brushed me while leaving the stage with Cibo Matto.

Travis Nelsen from Okkervil River SHOT ME.

...Only with a water pistol, but still. Got a hug from Will Sheff later on, so it's all ok now.

Belle and Sebastian signed me a drum head about a week after Isobel left.

I have plenty of local stories, but they're probably not bands people listening to the stuff discussed here would care about. I'm kind of a musical outlier in 'the scene.' Even lsitening to Ted Leo (used to live here) is beyond most of the people around here who care.

They played the worst cover of "Where Eagles Dare" ever at a show I saw.

I went to college with Ra Ra Riot, and I know some of them fairly well. Their manager always recognizes me at shows.

I accidentally hit the lead singer of the LunaChicks in the face with a bathroom stall door. She was pushing on a pull door, so I couldn't get in from the other side, so I kicked the door, and it slammed into her face. She was understandably upset, I feel less bad about it as years go on, but it was still a dick move.

I also comforted one of the members of Circle Takes the Square, after they played a show, and audience members asked them to turn it down so that they could hear their friends talking better. The crowd really just wasn't into it. I guess they're famous or something now.

Who the fuck would go to a CTTS show to talk to their friends?

Dude, turn it up LOUDER. Revoke their earplugs if they have any.

I don't know, I don't think that it's polite, but they weren't very good, either. Perhaps it was an off night. Almost everyone went outside, and those that remained decided to talk to each other. Although, I have heard many people say that it's terrible that people did that, but have seen similar behavior with bands that aren't really popular, and no one seems to care.

I should probably mention this was in like 2002 that this all occurred, I don't know what was going on with said band at this time, as I do not listen to them, so perhaps they weren't really popular at that point.

I've met Jon Courtney and Chloe Alper and I will be highly impressed if anyone knows which band they're in, even here
