    I used to go to a lot of rock concerts, and the only one where I felt like the crowd was getting out of control and I might actually get hurt was… Everclear. So it’s hard for me to picture them playing the America Gardens Theater to a bunch of Epcot Food & Wine-goers.

    The inexorable march of time, I suppose.

    My soul is weeping that I’m missing .38 Special by TEN days! And I get Hanson instead (no offense, early poster)! Sigh.
