Me: We have to go to Northern Lights, just one more time, PLEASE!
Hus: Why? That placed is a death trap. No.
Me: But Social Distortion is playing there! Mike Ness, you like Mike and the current drummer played for The Offspring. You LOVE them. OOH and you know Social D will do Ring of Fire, Please! I've always wanted to see them. I may have seen them in the '80's but I can't remember.
Hus: Social D will draw a huge crowd. Don't you remember how bad that place was the last time we went there. It was raining sweat-other peoples sweat-from the exposed pipes on the ceiling. Gross.
Me: It's probably been fixed up since the fire. Remember when you were young and adventurous and going to a club like that was fun. Maybe we could bring an umbrella or wear a rain poncho. PLEASE!
Hus: Do you remember how hot it was in there. You don't do well in the heat. And you have to walk a mile to get to the ladies room.
Me: Ya, but... I have a Social D t-shirt!
Hus: That you bought at JC Penney!
Me: No, I bought my Red Hot Chili Pepper's T there; I got Social D's at Rockin Willy's.
Hus: Not going.
Me: But PLEASE! Do it for you father? He loved Johnny Cash. (low blow)
Me:How bout I do something nice for you after the show?(low blow) You know how concerts turn me on, remember after Joan Jett?
Hus: No, well maybe.
Me: You know I didn't try to get you to go to see Green Day with me because the tickets were $150+ and I don't believe that a true Punk Rock band would ever charge that much (and now I change the station when Green Day is playing-but that's for another Sat Sounds) so guess how much these tickets are... $25, So cheap for a REAL Punk Rock band. PLEASE!
Me: Hey, remember the time my mother babysat while we went to a show there, and she asked if they served hors d'oeuvres?
Okay, so Mike looks a little crazy in the vid,but he's supposed to. Maybe he just needs a little less eye liner.
I can't wait to see the show!
