2 Skinnee J's 2/12/10
Talk about a great Valentine's Day present! One of my favorite bands in college made their way up to Alexandria's Birchmere for an "Acoustic Tell All Show". I felt instantly old when I realized that 1. a band I like is playing the Birchmere and 2. it was going to be a vh1 style remembrance show. It was amazing except that J Guevara didn't show up. The band, led by Special J, played all their greatest hits and filled the night with funny old tour stories. It was a very intimate show setting that was highlighted by a casual meet and greet after the show. I even got to trade stories with band members when I bought a cd of a Norfolk concert I was at!
