It was 20 years ago (today?)

It's absolutely crazy to think it's been this long, but sometime in the summer of 1988, my band opened for the hardcore band M.O.D. at this little club in New Jersey called Obsessions. It was the best show we ever played, and it was a packed house. There's no feeling like being on stage in front of thousands of fans, all cheering for you. (And it was thousands, at least that night.) Of course, I laugh when I see the pictures now.

I don't look like that anymore. I do actually look like my profile pic in the top left of the blog, which was taken last October. (And I'm with my niece in the full pic, who's making the same pose - I know it looks kinda dorky by myself.)

Anyone want to start a new band?


  1. wow. speechless.

    post more pics?

  2. I dunno... I picked that one because it's all about the hair and you can't really see my face :)


About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.
