Mar 24, 2016 No Comments by

by Rich S. I saw this website and then saw a ticket stub from a show at Merriwether I thought I was at. Turns out I was there the next night. I wonder if you guys have any full stands of the Dead (like 5 straight shows from someplace) To my dead-head brothers & sisters […]

The Fat Man Rocks Merriwether – 1985

Even as they grew older (Jerry) and played with less of the energy they once brought to the stage – there was never any doubt that the Fat Man still rocked, and right from the start – Half-Step let us know this was gonna be a Jerry show. Being so close to all those colleges, […]

Could Georgetown lose to the American University Eagles?

Nov 04, 2015 No Comments

Could Georgetown lose to the American University Eagles? We’re #5 – no WAY Coming off the loss in the biggest game of the year – “Ewing vs Sampson” (a ticket  they must have sold separately cause I can’t find it and know I was there), we were ranked 5th – and they were American. So […]

Living Colour Concert

Aug 28, 2015 31 Comments

Ok, I admit it…..I totally fell for this novelty act. (If that sounds harsh, go back and listen to the debut album again…..Although, I’d be remiss not to point out that the “Stain” album a few years later was a hell of a lot more interesting than most of their schtick. Hiring the badass who […]

Hoyas Saxa! – What Rocks!

Oct 27, 2013 No Comments

Coming off the win over Syracuse – going up against UConn – really before they began to establish themselves as the power they become was expected to be a solid game – but as usual being 18 and a Hoyas meant expecting a win. With a 74 – 53 finish it looks like this was […]

Oct 10, 2013 No Comments

The first thing I thought of when I saw this ticket was “Wow, the Pitt Panthers, I’ve got a friend and business associate who played ball for them, gotta tell him he’s about to be in a Stubstory.” So, Willie Kelly, power forward for the 74, 75, & 76  Panthers, this one’s for you – […]

Joe Satriani – Constitution Hall, DC – 1990

Oct 08, 2013 No Comments

I can’t believe I was as excited as I was to see this concert. I think this was my second concert ever, and I went with two total guitar geeks. (Note: I do not even play guitar….or did not at this point in time). None of us had a lot of experience driving in the […]

Freshman year continued to roll along. After a squeaker on the road against Mighty Kentucky – OK Western Kentucky – it was home against perennial powerhouse Alabama State.
