not to be that guy (oh who am i kidding, i live to be that guy), but there were no hanukkah shows in 2003, 2006, or 2009. and this whole thing about maxwell's being hard for new yorkers to get to only helped to separate the true fans from the nattering masses who seemed to be way more interested in seeing the secret opening bands in a tiny room than the almighty ylt.

not to be THAT GUY but ira & georgia got married on 4/16/87, well into the band's tenure. they just celebrated their 30th anniversary (and got a well-wishing tweet from yoko ono). i also just fixed the wikipedia entry which was also incorrect.

If Jay was really serious he'd take over Garth Brooks' super crappy digital music store and rebrand it as GhosTidal.

"The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, the most viscerally entertaining non-Cypress Hill act on the Lollapalooza 1995 main stage" only someone with a massive pavement blind spot could write that.

I know you probably pulled that "I was smoking a lot of grass" quote from Jovanovic's book, but Jovanovic likely pulled it from an interview the band was doing at the time. I'm 99% sure Malkmus didn't talk to Jovanovic directly at all for Perfect Sound Forever.

interesting "ohm" fact: the lyrics were written between soundcheck and first live performance at primavera.
