So much oozing hate, yo. So, there's sitting involved. And like: a weird junior-highschoolish stage. And sound issues, at times.
Reasons I secretly love DAR Constitution Hall:
1. The first time I ever went to DAR was on a date. It was 1993. I saw Tears for Fears Elemental tour, I wore Birkenstocks (w. socks), and the opening band (wait for it): Jellyfish (I THINK.) I still have that teeshirt, and it. is. awesome. I do clearly recall that the boyfriend lost his wallet that night, and some dude in Maryland called him up and returned it the next day, all money/ID/single Shell Gas credit card his dad had given him perfectly intact. Also, I wore the shirt to school the next day, and a kid I hardly knew complemented me on it, an we became fast friends until graduation and college (me)/joining the Air Force-slash-getting into rockabilly intervened (him).*
2. The N and I once saw BB King and Clarence Carter there. We sat kind of near Marion Barry. If I recall, he was sweaty. Also, it's the only venue in which I've witnessed Sonic Youth. Although Marion wasn't there for that show. UNFORT!
3. I'm legacy, dammit. No seriously, I am. Hilarious, I know. It's like Viking boinked** good ol US of A hillbilly, and this is what you get. If Pygs participated in memes at all, that might be one of my "6 weird things you don't know about me."
Oh, nevermind, no it wouldn't.
Post yr fondest DAR memories below, if they exist. DARE YOU.
