    Re: Upcoming Shows

    Pulled tickets for Slowdive at the Warfield. So excited Low are opening as I've never seen them. I had tickets to see them at the Brickhouse in Phoenix when that was a thing but the show was canceled.

    Re: The Default Thread

    Apartment hunting in San Francisco was successful! We got a place in the Mission so my wife will have a very sorry commute. Mine will be zero so also wonderful.

    I am very excited!
