Hey everyone! I'm posting this on other boards too, so post here, and come on down! Last one was just me and my friend(:p to me) but now we have an occasion, so I don't want any excuses like "I have to work" That is so-holy shot, I'm gonna be late for work! Copy/paste

Jimmy Chamberlin Complex pre-show gettogether!

When? Saturday, April 9th at 3:00 PM We will wait for late folks :)

Where the hell is it? On the steps of the art gallery in Downtown Vancouver...Robson Street side!

What will we do? Much like the making of Adore, we will do Whatever we wanna. We will field suggestions from the more creative and decsisive members of our group on the day, and we'll go with the grooviest suggestions :) Me, I'm down for whatever.

Why??? Because the meetup last October when Billy came to town for his newyorktimesbestseller was so much fun, even though hardly anyone knew eachother before, and we were all so different yet so friendly, we oughta make some mo' magic, and some more good times...And the last meetup, in March, was just me and a buddy of mine lol

Who?? Anybody and everybody, no clique-ish things goin on here, just a common interest bringing some good people together. What else are you gonna do on a Sunday afternoon? I'm looking forward to your RSVP's, your emails, your message board posts, and most of all, your Arrival at the meetup! See ya!!

Notes:

Hi everybody, I'm Josh, and I'd love it if you, yes you, whoever you are, will come and hang out with us for a SP meet-up! We had a similar get-together when Billy came to town to promote his book! We had over a DOZEN awesome people show up, say Hi and stick around. All in all, we all had an excellent time and made some new pals. Considering the niche a big pumpkins fan that would read something like this, we all got along great!
FUN ~ yes something that is only present in the first 28 times reading scrawled Siamese Dream liner notes...;)
So come on down! You can always ditch, and I'd wager cash you will not wanna
Everyone is welcome! 13 or 37, whateva! Bring a friend if you want to. The human security blankets can be good motivator's ;)
!!!Sunday, March 13th, 3 PM on the steps of the art gallery in downtown Vancouver! Robson St!~Activities, locales etc = Suggest whatever you want, and we'll take on-the-spot polls! Questions? Email me! RSVP if you can, and do come! See ya there!

okay josh! i'm coming. :D No excuses that weekend as i'll be in the first week of my term. Now that Jimmy is coming it is the perfect time to get together. We can try to talk to jimmy outside the club and tell him how excited we are that they came to vancouver. It will be such an amazing show. Hope to see some more of you there,

I just bought two tickets today. And two of the three people I wanted to go with can't. So.... I'll try and make it but I still don't know exactly what I'm doing!

They played everything off the record except lullabye, plus three songs including Sloth, which was the encore. Jimmy's drumming was consistently stunning and I was smiling the whole night, and Sean and Billy both played great too. Cranes of Prey and Owed to Darly and Sloth were well over ten minutes each which and we're the hilights. After the show I got to shake Jimmy's hand but never got a chance to get LBA signed...

In conclusion, Jimmy is the coolest person ever.

Ah cool. That means they're playing quite a bit longer than on the mini tour in January.

We also did a good job getting an encore lol By the time they came back out, the whole venue was slamming their feet and fists while chanting "Jimmy":D
