  • Interests:I'm your typical 16 year old kid. Well, not really. I hate emo music, I've actually heard of Rush, and I'm not scene. My favorite bands are Rush, Genesis, Van Halen, and Motley Crue. I love baseball, football, basketball, and hockey. Unlike your typical 16 year old in this generation, right?

    I'm funny, I like sarcasm, and I will use it against you, so be ready. I'm witty, I'm charming, and you will grow to like me. Peace. Amen. Out.

We arrived just before the show began, unfortunately, so I didn't see anyone I recognized as we walked in.  It's a long drive from the north side of town.  We would have tried to show up at a meeting place, but my wife was tied up at a work function downtown during the day.  And I forgot how awful it is to get in and out of this venue.  I wish they'd play anywhere but that place next time Rush comes to town.  I hope you guys all got to meet up and have some fun without me, though.  Next time.
