Randomly listening to This Is a Standoff’s Be Disappointed on the stereo upstairs. Realizing I saw them live (just) once, in Brussels. Thinking of all the shows I used to go to—how things have changed! Thinking of Rob Weychert’s site of all shows he’s ever been to.
Was able to create a surprisingly complete list of shows I’ve ever attended, mostly from memory, old emails, and some googling. A few Facebook and other web pages with old flyers came in handy, too—visual memory much? There’s at least two, and probably more, gaps, but still.
Capdown! Liberator! Skin of Tears! The Get Up Kids! Jimmy Eat World! Kris Roe! Mad Caddies! No Use for a Name! No Fun at All! Shelter! Gorilla Biscuits! Bring Me the Horizon, come to think of it. Etc., etc. (× 1000)
