    I'm bummed

    Camper van Beethoven are playing in Montreal tonite, AND I CAN'T Go!!! They are on a very short list of bands from the my mis-spent youth, that includes The Jam and Stiff Little Fingers, that I've always wanted to see live. Anywho, I just can't do another school-night show that won't allow me to get to bed before 3:00 A.M. Bummer! Why can't the backwater town I live in get any decent acts to show-up. Maybe I should get into the concert promotion business.

    Has anyone heard the new release from these college-rock gods? Allmusic.com gives two thumbs up. Here's a link: http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p...1l67uy040jg~T1

    If you like them that much you need to find a way to go because if you don't you will regret it!

    There are countless times when I want to see a "must-see" show, in Toronto, during the week....and I have to take a pass. I only have a 45 min. commute -- not 2 hrs, like you my friend -- and it still irks me to find that the band is playing New York Fri, Sat, and Sunday when they leave here, on Wednesday.

    Oh, well

    1. intro
    2. all her favorite fruit
    3. sweethearts
    4. tanya
    5. eye of fatima I & II
    6. 51-7
    7. white riot
    8. wasted
    9. shut us down
    10. instrumental
    11. history of utah
    12. might makes right
    13. good guys and bad guys

    Wow Jim,

    Thanks for the link. I'm definitely going to download that show. Wish I had a faster connection.

    Cool, "White Riot" and "Wasted." I'll have to check that one out too. Thanks, JC.

    This is what was reported-

    Message from Jonathan:
    all of camper van beethoven's guitars and violin and our merch got
    stolen last night in montreal. if anybody has any contacts up here,
    tell them to look for our stuff in stores. or hunt down the robbers and
    kill them.
    jonathan's violin with stickers all over it jonathan's 1971 strat (sunburst) (with a couple stickers, etc.)O
    victor's 1969 precision bass (natural finish)
    david's green charvel surfcaster
    david's black jackson surfcaster
    a couple ibanez acoustics
    johnny's black eric clapton strat
    greg's frankenstein strat (black) and tele (tobacco sunbusrst)
    (warmoth esp or something)
    plus mike duclos' precision bass and ezster balint's gibson sg and danelectro semi acoustic.
    maybe more.. not sure yet. a few tshirts and a road case of cds. including the email list we collected last night, preventing this from going out to montreal fans!
    And the world will turn to flowing pink vapor stew.
