Talk about a blast from the past. The last time I was at Lupo's was in 1980.Anyway, never saw BNL (or KT) before, but this was at least the fifth time I've seen BTE (at least once at Lupos on Westminster, then Lupos at The Strand (both in Providence), also the Avalon and the Paradise in Boston).
How the mighty have fallen. I first saw the BNL in a packed TD center (Boston Garden) with Guster opening for them. A few years ago I saw what was left of them at some rinky-dink campground on Lake Webster with about 30 people in attendance.
Mike, I don't know if you can get it down where you are, but the closest station to alternative that I know of around here is 92.5 The River in Haverhill. Of course, WBLM is still going strong in Portland, ME. It's out of my reach here, but I'll listen to it all the way from the big green bridge over the Piscatiqua to Bar Harbor when I head up there in a few weeks.
The Foo Fighters are my daughter's favorite band. She even has a Foo Fighters tattoo and I'm not happy about it.
