I love love love living in New York.
I take back all the bad things i have ever said about how shitty living here is with the grime and the dirt, about how crappily small the apartments are and how bad the restaurants are.
There is one upside that living in New York has over Australia in spades, music and fantastic live gigs.
I only recently found out that Social distortion are still touring http://blog.collins.net.pr/2010/01/social-distortion-can-you-believe-it.html (it seems they now live in Brazil).
This morning i opened my email to find out, in 60 minutes time, tickets for their North America tour were going on sale (doing lollapalooza) but also a few local gigs here in New York.
I woke Jodie up to tell her but not sure if it was too early in the morning but she didn't seem excited so i'm either going to have to convert her to being a fan OR someone else gets to use my second ticket.
For those of you who dont know the andrenalin pumping joy of Social Distortion imagine finding out that Bon Scott and Kurt Cobain were doing a gig at your local pub next friday and thats how excited i am at the moment.
For anyone that wants to score tickets to The Webster and hook up with me on Saturday night the 31st of July in Hartford the link is here http://www.socialdistortion.com/tours and http://www.tickets.com/browseother.cgi?minpid=6748275
