Flagpole Sitta

The first Saturday of every month, the Knockout in the Mission hosts a party called Debaser that features 90's alternative music. We went last night. It was a total blast.

Want to know what it was like? Picture a bunch of kids with ironic hipster moustaches dancing to songs like "Possum Kingdom" by the Toadies and "Holland 1945" by Neutral Milk Hotel and "Been Caught Stealing" by Jane's and "Last Splash" by the Breeders and "Song 2" by Blur and you'll have an idea.

I realize this photo isn't very helpful. I wasn't using the flash. For some much better pixx (not from last night, but from other nights), check out our friend Chris's set here.

There was also a live performance by Ocean Spray, a Cranberries cover band. Yes, there is a Cranberries cover band. They were really good. What struck me was how many songs I recognized. I guess the Cranberries achieved greater market penetration than I realized.

When I was outside smoking, I heard some guy say "Five bucks just to get in a bar?" Well, fuck that. It was worth way more than that. I forgot how much I love those songs. I would have paid six bucks. Maybe seven.

Earlier that day, we went to see Stephen and Jessica's new dog, Todd. He's some kind of chihuahua/terrier mix. Todd kicks ass.

Sigh. Yeah, I know, the pictures didn't work at all.

your previous post seems to have had no effect since they went ahead and named their dog.... Todd.
