    Sonar in Baltimore? Why not Ram’s Head or even the Recher Theater? Much less of a “dive” feeling. Still, you’re finally coming back to Baltimore so I’ll be there anyway!

    I’ll be seeing you at Reggie”s in Chicago on the 8th of October. I was there at Reggie’s last to see the Supersuckers. Great place, small & intimate. Go eat at Gino’s East for some great deep dish pizza. That’s where Me and the Missus ate at before the Supersuckers. As J. Geils said- “Just Can’t Wait” See you all there!! Thanks!!
