February 20, 2005 - Shoebox turns 30...

Just Joe was not there as his car would not start. The Penguin was there for a bit. Ritchie from the Pushrods was there for about half of the show. He performed some songs, and, wonder of wonders, I don't think he got distracted, or screwed up, or forgot the lyrics even once, which may be a first. It was quite impressive. I don't know if it was because there was no Just Joe there? I don't think that could be all that accounted for it, as Just Joe was absent a couple weeks ago, and Ritchie still seemed to have just as much trouble getting through his songs. He must just have hit a really good night for some reason. The last hour of the show (as well as some of the music throughout the whole night) was all Shoebox's music, including some old and rare and/or remixed gems. This was really fun, and it was because Saturday February 19th was Shoebox's birthday, and, thus, marked 3 decades of Shoebox on this planet. Yes, he turned 30! Happy birthday Shoebox!
