BEST…DEBUT…FAREWELL…REUNION…SHOWS…EVER

Through accidents, coincidence and ridiculous prioritizing, I’ve ended up seeing a few first/last shows.  I’ve been meaning to put this page up just to talk about a few times I saw a few alt-rock bands’ debut performances. Typically, it turned into more when I started thinking about some farewell and reunion shows plus some American debuts I caught. I know I’m forgetting some.  You’ll understand when you’re my age.
