Memories from an LA TMBG show & instore.  The first time I saw them was at XFest III in 1990 with B-52's, Ziggy Marley & the Cramps.  I did not jokingly get down and kiss John Flansburgh's feet  as he walked through the crowd.  That just didn't happen.

GEEK NOTES
First acts with three songs: THE KOOKS & CATHERINE WHEEL, both with exactly 43 points.
First act with four songs: TRAVIS, just two points more than the Kooks & Catherine Wheel
Best song: Groove Is In The Heart (name a song with more hooks). Worst: that Train song (by a LOT). What do YOU think?
