curley's. tuesday. november 30, 1999. 9pm.

it was almost joe alonso's half birthday... it was bono's birthday... it was mmhg suburb style. the waitresseswere tired from a long day of ap tests and we were doing our best to look like bad-asses with our amps cranked down to 3 and chris toting bundlesticks. luckily, our oldest friends and family members didn't seem to mind. everyone was really happy in fact, except for lenny g. who was confined to the car after his horrible behavior at phyllis'. highlights of the double-set show included solo performances from john and travis and the triumphant (?) return of joe alonso's heart-pounding,reckless-disregard- for-meter-sting-rolling-over-in-his-mansion version of "message in a bottle" this time complete with all three verses and some bonusgrowling of "bo-ttle bo-ttle." the crowd seemed to really be smiling during that escapade though some people might have been wincing... anyway, all of the earnings from this performance not given to our fifth member, samuel adams, are headed towards our new disc so inclined due out 5-14. so it wasn't exactly like selling out, right guys?
