    AAAAAAAAAAAAmazing. It was like punk free jazz. I was right up front and took some pics, I'll post them... at some point... at somewhere... I hope they turned out. I also got to shake hands with Watt. I couldn't think of much to say, I was kinda star struck, I just said helluva show a couple of times and listened to him ramble on with other folks at the show.

    A kid even had him draw a Blue Oyster Cult symbol when he autographed a minutmen record. :D

    I'm really looking forward to picking up the album, they didn't have any at the show. Very cool though, I know Mike is one of those people who will be making really good music for a really long time.

    Keep up the good work Watt, good luck on the rest of the tour. Hope you stop in and say hi when you get the time. :bassist: + :keyboard: + :drums: :D

    I'm pissed I missed him when he was playing cali. Though I did catch him with the secondmen, when he opened for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I couldn't really ask for a better show. Plus, it was cool when the flaming lips and rhcp all came out and played a song with them. hahahhahahaaaa.... All I can remember is Wayne Coyne screaming into a megaphone.

    Oh! Score! I'll catch him in december in san diego. The world is once again a magical place.

    Have you read the tour diary at all? A couple creepy small world type things for me in there, but at some point Mike says that he had to go to "sh*thard center for bass strings." Hahahhaaaaa...

    Plus cameo by Darrin Huff!

    Yeah he has stayed at my place the last couple times he has come through.

    Also when you read his diary here is a little tip... hold the control key and use the scroll key on your mouse(the wheel) to enlarge or shrink the text size.
