This is a List of Why I am Hard of Hearing.

So last night as I stood in the lawn of the Verizon Wireless Center watching people pump a fist in the air to various Def Leppard songs and trying to ignore the gyrating topless girl behind us I thought: What if people think I only like cheesy music? I only blog about going to see bands like Def Leppard and Christopher Cross, neither of which I find cheesy. I thought I would validate myself by reposting a list of all the bands I can remeber seeing that used to live on my old zine. I used to be really good about keeping up with all this, but I can’t remeber who I have seen at all those years at SXSW and Austin City Limits. So anywhoodle I present you with the list. Not that exciting of a blog entry, but what can I say I’m a little tired today.
