  1. That Friday show at Fontana's was just one of the best lineups I've ever seen/heard.
    I've got a bunch of photos from that day up on my site.

  2. Oh god. The Blow. I want to marry The Blow. I want to have The Blow's children and enlist them in pre-school early because of how amazing and gifted they will be. Am I making myself clear? I FUCKING LOVE THE BLOW.
