Hot Rod Circuit, TGUK, Dash. Alk3. It was... it was wonderful, for me and for all the wussy emo/indie kids.
I ran into Something To Write Home About at 16, and it floored me. Seeing it live was ace, and propelled me into near fanboy hysteria.
So: was anyone else in that crowd in 2002? You may have been kicked in the face by elaborately-scene converse while I crowd surfed.
It was the best.
