i can only remember going to the warped tour, a scottish festival, and seeing gaelic storm in 2003...

i think it's safe to say that the best show i will have been to this year will be dropkick murphys--even though it doesn't actually happen for a couple more weeks.

best so far:
dkm, andrew wk, or rancid on warped.

it scares me that i'm planning on going to about twice as many shows as i've seen all year in the upcoming 3 or 4 weeks.

i'm missing the chili peppers RIGHT NOW. i'd assume they're taking the stage now, or just did not too long ago. and i'm missing andrew wk this friday (but i get to meet him, so i guess that's almost as cool)

3) Wilco- 7/3/03 - Summerfest
4) Red Hot Chili Peppers - 5/30/03 - Madison

Yeah, but I'm not really willing to spend 20 on train fare + the ticket price to see him. I thought he was good at T, but not good enough to spend that much money to see.

holy fuckin shit. so, in case you've never heard of them, they're a ska band. do yourself a huge favor and go see them if they play a show near you.
