  1. Thank you! I was hoping somebody else would say this about the 40 Watt schedule.

    From Jeff M downwards, it's pretty pricey.

    I love the Lemonheads. Hate Your Friends through Ray are all classics.

    It's a killer list of shows, but damn.

    We are, after all, on a budget. And spoiled with great music for cheap.
