Actually, i'm from a small town in Northern MN called
Grand Rapids. It's the birthplace of Judy Garland!

(This was lots of fun when i was small. i was in the
Garland-day's Parade one year in my grandmother's
old prom dress as the "Good Witch." My father made
me a very beautiful crown and wand. i was the kick
ass'in'est good witch EVER.)

But, i did spend a year living in Fargo/Moorhead
when i went to Concordia. However, i managed
to escape after a year and now i'm living in Central
Minnesota (which is not any better). BUT!! i get
to move to Mpls/St. Paul this fall!!

Speaking of Mpls...GUESS WHERE I'M GOING TONIGHT!
The Long Winters/Decemberists show!!!!! (i cannot
possibly tell you how excited i am.)

As for my Amy Grant story...now i don't feel so alone.
i *loved* Wilson Philips. And i own the Immaculate
Collection.

I went to Concordia. I hated it for the most part, but made it through. I found the cynical society on campus (theatre, speech, arts kids) and I thrived there. plus I wanted to prove to the financial aid office that I could do it (upon arrival they told me I should consider another school, as my parents and myself are $less-- of course that just made me want to stay even though I hated my first year with a passion). I'll be paying loans forever, but I always gotta prove someone wrong. damn it.

where in central MN are you?

Honestly, i wish i had just stuck it out at Concordia.
Academically, i would have been much happier. And,
part of the reason it sucked so bad was that i didn't
find *any* community. i spent some time in the
theatre because i had a theatre scholarship, but i
didn't really make an effort to get to know anyone.
Mostly, i just stayed in my room and left every single
weekend.

But, i get to go to St. Kate's in the fall!!

i'm in St. Cloud now. This town is *so* creepy. Stearns
county is the sexual assault capitol of the universe or
something. And oh-so-Catholic.

1st show....

Postby thepeter » Fri Jun 04, 2004 7:09 pm

steve perry at the schnitzer in portland.....

....but i went with my parents and grandparents because my uncle was in the band. i remember the people freaking out and i remember steve had long long hair. i assume he played the journey hits. i was 15 or 16 at the time and sure didn't know any of them. and now here i am wishing i didn't know any of them.

the 1st show i paid to see was cracker with pete droge opening at la luna in 1999. pete played "beautiful girl" and cracker played most of the songs i wanted to hear but not "kerosene hat." i went to the bathroom during "infermary" and my friends wanted to leave after the 2nd encore hit the half-hour point so i went with them and i've never ever ever ever left a concert early or to pee since.

i was 17 and was grounded for a month because i got home at 230am, causing me to miss what would have been my 1st built to spill show, also at la luna. i even had a ticket for it already. what i would pay now to see built to spill in portland at any place other than the crystal...

She is pretty foxy, in that alcoholic, mentally ill, suicidal
sort of way. But the pigtails do it for me. And the
singing. i also dig the shoes. Overall, i'm with you.

My first show was New Kids on the Block at the New York State Fair in, I think, 1991. Let's never speak of that again.

If it makes one feel any better, the next two shows I went to were "Weird" Al Yankovic and Earth Crisis. So.

Led Zep - Madison Square Garden - 1977. Wasted like only a 15-year-old can get. Southern Comfort. Still can't smell the stuff. It's like Kryptonite to me.

I can't smell Southen Comfort either. When I was 15 I made the mistake of mixing it with Grape Nehi. My first concert was Dio, the Last in Line tour, with Dokken, at the Sullivan Arena in Anchorage.

I think that may have been my first as well, only the other end of the tour. Green lasers came out of the dragons' eyes, and I had to be at a district swim meet the next morning.

My first real concert was Barry Manilow at Red Rocks in Colorado. Come to think of it, it was also the first time I smelled pot. I think I was about 8.

Well, I made up for it-the first actual peice of vinyl I ever purchased was Talking Heads 77. For some reason, I think that was a more significant experience.

Please...
Southern Comfort didn't do anything to anyone
that didn't have it coming to them...
The stuff is painless, unless you're that type of drunk
that enjoys getting out of your seat...

John, You shoulda went with Sunkist Orange...
