The Details

Well, this was it, the final concert of the year!!

I headed up to Buffalo in the early afternoon to visit some college friends who were also going to the show that night. Headed to the venue (Ogden St. Music Hall) around 7pm, in plenty of time to get a good spot to see the show. Got my 8th stamp, found Marty and Cathy pretty much right away, but was still waiting for everyone else to show. Tonight would be the first time I would meet Colleen, so I was excited to have absolutely all the Früfans there that night.

Colleen and I met in a weird way. Sharilyn had shown up by then, and we were all standing in a big circle saying hello, when Colleen looked at me and just nodded. I had forgotten that she had only a textual web browser, so she didn't know what I looked like. I said my name was Chris, but she said later that she thought I said "Chip" (Marty's friend). When I finally said (rather loudly) "Chris O'Malley", her attitude quickly changed. :-) I was once again greeted with a large hug.

We got real close to the stage this time (about 3 rows back). Tory Chassis once again did a quick set by himself, which was very cool. The teeny-bopper rating was still kind of high, but not nearly as bad as it was the night before. Moxy hit the stage earlier this time, around 9:30. They played til about 11:45 or so. This set was definitely the longest of the three.

Hung around after the show with everyone, talked to Murray real quick (this is when the 'triple crown' thing came up), and stayed til about 1:30 in the morning. Headed home to Rochester, very happy that the past three days had been some of the best in my life. I had such a great time meeting all of these people that beforehand I had only known through e-mail. Everyone made me feel so welcome into a group that admittedly I just became a part of very recently. I can't wait to see you all again as soon as possible!! :-)
