    A lot of people I know (including myself) go to Mike Dove in outer Silver Spring. He's a phone user, not an emailer:

    This x1000. I saw them on the Afterglow tour at 930 Club. They tore the roof off that place. A GREAT show. Then I saw them maybe six or seven years later in San Francisco at The Fillmore. Art had fired Craig and Greg and replaced them with four other guys. The show was terrible. Exactly as Guitar Josh describes. Slow, lethargic, no energy. Not only could Art not hit the notes, he basically couldn't sing. As much as I love "Sparkle and Fade" (probably a top 15 album for me) and "So Much for the Afterglow", that show made it obvious that Art writes the same two songs over and over. He could get away with that if he delivered them with energy.

    Sorry man. Not my intention. All this rain is making me ... :mad:

    It's not in my nature to root against people or teams. Well, except for the NY Yankees, Dallas Cowboys, and Chelsea FC :)

    I'm rooting for Art to get it back.

    No worries! :beer

    I admit, I did wonder, when I bought my ticket, why Everclear was performing at the relatively small State Theatre venue for such a low price. :eek:

    Justin at Union Street Guitars in Occoquan, Va. After Bob at Dale City Music passed, they just did not have the guy, so I checked out Union Street about a year ago and he's done a lot of work for me and several of my friends.

    I'm looking for a person who can do a fret replacement job in the Silver Spring area. I only have one guitar and would like to get it back is say less than 2 weeks time.

    Anyone in the Baltimore metro area have a TopHat Club Royale or Super Deluxe I could try out? Is that a question I can ask in this thread?

    Ok cool! Trying to figure out if one of those is actually the answer for what I need before I do a custom order with them.

    Can any one recommend a good place to buy some used home stereo speakers in the Northern Virginia area? I'm just looking for a good pair of vintage style floor speakers with like 10" or 12" woofers, and I haven't been having much luck searching on CL.

    I was just at Royal pawn in Woodbridge last week. They have several stores in the DC area and I recall seeing a lot of old stereo equipment. Believe it or not I stumbled across a vintage mesa boogie amp there and bought it!

    When in Woodbridge, try to also visit the old town, including touring the museum in the old jail museum and visiting the Drum and Strum Music Center store.

    EDIT: I just realized I’d confused Woodbridge with Warrenton! :eek:
