    No your memory is right on. I remember watching Sean Penn with you and Tessa. Then right after it was like "raping babies, really?" I was just wondering which exact Sean Penn "performance" you were refering too haha.

    Ah! I forgot Goldfrapp, the list will definitely change. The biggest disappointment this year was definitely Soulwax.

The venue was tiny - only about 150 people were allowed in. There was no backstage. During the act before us, Ulrich was standing 2 feet from me just enjoying the music and himself. I got to meet him and everything, and for me that meant alot because he's one of my all time favorite producers.

    Here's a picture:



    no light show or visuals or anything. just him in the dark playing music. definitely one i'll remember.

    That show was so great. It was my first time at the Troubadour. It would be higher on the list but there were so many other good shows this year.
