What a lucky boy I am: Last night, I saw the reunited Cars, live in concert. A dream come true. And after this concert, by my surprisingly scientific calculations (or maybe not surprising, based on the fact that I'm an uber-trivia nerd), I have now seen 11 of my 15 favorite bands of all time; still working on the Beatles, the Who, the Kinks, and the Jam. Wish me luck.
As I must do when I score free tickets via my day obligations, I've reviewed the show for Time Out New York. Swell photos, too, though I had nothing to do with those (I couldn't see much detail way up in the balcony with David Lee Roth, no lie).
And why has no one put the Phoebe Cates–"Moving in Stereo" scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High on the Internet? How do you think we first became fans of this band?
