Great pictures, and it's good to see another Old 97's fan on the board...

I really like the pictures from the balcony, it's rare to see full band live pics

i like the old 97's. my goal in life is to fall in love with a boy who loves the old 97's and when he realizes that i am awesome and wants to marry me, he will play "question" -- yes, it's trite/cliche/etc, but whatever.

Y'all are awesome. Well, the guys are awesome for letting me run all over the place and use my flash bulbs. And the Great American Music Hall staff was damn nice to me. A security guard actually apologized after he saw my photo pass. So yeah. Good times had by all. The ones with the most single-color saturations were taken without flash, when the stage lights went all pretty. I like those too. -- Alex

i hate using flash at least 97% of the time.
stage lighting + no flash = best pictures ever. most of the time, at least.

Oh Ira.

Trucker hat?

Oh Ira.

Please go back to the cowboy chapeau. You can even put a "Fuck Bush" sticker on it.

Otherwise, much love.

Your pal,
Meg

i don't think it's such a crime for guys to wear trucker hats. i only get annoyed with them when people like Allie and Jamie from Rich Girls wear them. then again, i live in Milwaukee, and our hipster population is surely much weaker than that of New York City, so i can see why you would be more opposed to them than me. do THAT many people really wear them?

Here's where I get super-ridiculous.

I was up on the anti-trucker cap tip lo oh so many years ago (THAT'S RIGHT GAWKER. I WAS THERE IN 2000, HATING!) when I went to some schmancy loft art crap crap wank bullshit and saw many-a pre-hipster wearing foam-mesh caps.

Foam-mesh caps? asked my roommate.

Yes, I said. All of these individuals are wearing foam-mesh caps. Some of them are also wearing Dickies, some Carhartt. This is creating a hilarious situation! I come from good solid dairy farm stock. My grandfather wears a foam-mesh cap every day. Also Dickies. THESE PEOPLE ARE DRESSING LIKE MY EIGHTY-EIGHT YEAR OLD DAIRY FARMIN' GRANDPAPA.

Which is awesome, hilarious, etc.

They, of course, get the last laugh, since I'm the one living in Williamsburg, wearing a Levi's snap-front shirt I took from my grandmother. Goddamnit.

Ah fashion. (Watch out or Betty'll start a cattywampus fashionista thread complete with all sorts of stupid overthinky psuedo social theory questions...)

I just have to say, on the subject of fashion trends, that I went to highschool at the peak of the "grunge".... thing. egad.

Thanks a lot for ruining every picture of my youth Seattle...

Look, I pay you to do three things.

1. Act like you like me.

2. Write my material.

3. SHUT THE HELL UP.

Now let's get on it, all right?

this whole thing raises questions.

like: whose grandpa is that dairyfarming foam-meshcap wearing guy, Meg's or Heather's
and how much does it cost Meg to get Heather to shut up?

maybe we should take this to the dumb questions section and get an expert opinion on it by someone who cannot be bought

That's actually cheap. Getting her to shut "the hell" up costs way extra.
