The Naptional? No way! I was in the middle of the floor when Matt came out into the crowd. It was so awesome. I didn't see him jump off the stage and all of a sudden there was a mic cord above my head. I was thinking "cool he threw the mic into the crowd, if it comes this way I am going to scream into it". Then I turned around and I saw Matt running right at me and he ran right through my path on his way back to the stage. It was wild. The National is probably my 2nd favorite band behind Bright Eyes though so I was pretty pumped up to see them.

When I saw Dave Matthews Band in August of 1996, about halfway through the show this unbelievably ripped dude came barging through the crowd, pushing people aside and screaming I GOTTA TALK TO DAVE! I GOTTA TALK TO DAVE!
He pushes past me and makes it another ten feet or so; then he stops and turns around. The crowd parted like the Red Sea and there's this corridor of empty space between Wasted Dude and me. He points right at me and looks me right in the eyes and says, "YOU KNOW WHAT DAVE? YOUR MUSIC FUCKING SUCKS."
