Default Shifty joined the Gimmies on stage tonight.

We got a special treat at the DNA lounge in San Francisco tonight. The Foos are in town for Outside Lands tomorrow. Shifty joined his brother Scott & the rest of the Gimmies on stage for the encore. 2 Shifletts in the house!

Wow, the bruises on my arms are already coming out. Lovely but so worth it.

I have turned into a real wimp - could not hang in with the smooshing and elbows. Decided to save some strength for today. Worked out okay because I got to actually enjoy the show and Cheryl and I got to witness the chick crowd surfing who flashed her tits. Good times.

At least two broken toes are attributed to a Gimmes show at the Corner. I will gladly break more toes
I miss them all so bad. I just want to hug them all and then lock them in my basement.

Pretty sure I broke a finger at that show, or at the very least sprained it. The good news is it belonged to the douchebag behind me who tried to cop a feel.

I miss them too.

Watching the shifletts playing together is always fun, because they mirror each other in movements etc.

In other news, I may have picked up a ticket for their London show.

Yay! We have another two degrees of separation when you say hi to Scott and tell him you know me.

And that video; I love how Chris isn't stepping on Scott's toes re: the solos. He knows who the lead Gimmes guitarist is when they play live.

"Hello, you don't know me, but I sort of know someone you are friends with through the internet"

Yes, that TOTALLY won't creep him out. Especially when I turn up at the festival set the following day...

Totally works!! It also makes an excellent pick up line under the right circumstances.
