hah! saw him with the wronglers
haven't been to shows in years now:
probably saw 100+ artists a year for about 10 years running until the turn of the millenium
then 9-11 came and it just wasn't fun
cops in the venues
hardcore debauchery became commonplace-
Country alt or"americana" had been co opted by labels and easy marketing-
Now if you want to see a fine act in a nice place you have to go to a day show...
