12 RODS LAST SHOW
12 Rods, what can I say? You were one of the most creative, innovative, talented, energetic, challenging, anguished and euphoric bands I've ever known. Notice I didn't say "local." You rocked me hard. You made it okay to have special geek boy feelings. And whether you know it or not, Lorika and I acted out dramatic performance art everytime you played "I Am Faster." It was bittersweet putting on our little show one last time tonight. That's always been our song, but tonight "Rock N' Roll Band" became our new song. We weren't acting for that song, just holding each other and soaking it all in, the perfect end to a perfect day.
Somewhere I have a much better Quicktime version of this...
