If you’re a fellow gen-xer and were at all into odd music during your youth then you’d probably recognize The Residents‘ signature eyeball motif. I honestly hadn’t thought of them in years, despite having really enjoyed Meet the Residents. However the almighty wikipedia indicates they’ve never really stopped creating, and now they’re coming to the 930 Club on Feb 7th of next year. I’m somewhat surprised by the venue, given that when Negativland came through two years ago they only rated the under 100 seat Warehouse.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
