idk if they played in my town or when they formed
but all the members of alkaline trio are from my town
i know the red hot chili peppers played around here once after their first album
the only reason i know this is cause my parents were going to go but they decided to just go drinking instead.

Blink182... except Poway is about 25 minutes away from my hometown, and I was only 4 years old, so I guess that doesn't really count.

The Chariot ARE from Douglasville, Georgia, so of course they played here.

And Job For a Cowboy, I think. We have this venue called The Se7en Venue, and I'm almost positive they played there abuot two years back before they got really big.

I'm not TOO fond of JFAC, but The Chariot are decent.


Also, speaking of The Se7en, that's a sad place. It's such an amazing concept, too. It's an old two-screen movie theater converted into a two-stage venue. Just big enough for some good shows, but the bands that play there are nothing but horrible metalcore, hardcore and grindcore bands.

Now, if they were GOOD metalcore, hardcore, and grindcore, it would be different.

Sad times, are these. =/

+1. My dad and his brother were working in a bike shop I think it was, in Sydney. Some drunk bloke was trying to get on a bike, but he stumbled around and knocked it over. My dad went out to help him, and who was it? None other than a drunken Bon Scott at 11 in the morning.

Other than that... Not many other bands I listen to were playing here before they were big.

Personally, i'd buy her a can of Coke, then as she's drinking it say to her "Whats better than Coca Cola?" She'll go "What?" and you shout "CREAM SODA!" And ejaculate in her can.
