    I tried to have one show per artist, otherwise Boredoms would be 1,3,4 and 5, with the Fillmore show at #3. The LA show was just a step above the others for me.

    One update. The two SP shows couldn't crack the top 10. I have Longwave, God is An Astronaut, and AAC night 2 (if I can get a ticket) next week, so there is still a chance for movement. After that, my 2008 season will be over.

    There is someone on the Bonnaroo message boards with your exact precise avatar. (Albeit slightly larger). Either you're the same person, or that's kinda eerie.
