You know it’s going to be a decent show when the parking lot behind the venue is packed with a bunch of tailgating teenage punks. There were more than twenty cars last night at The Airliner, whose occupants were drinking and doing other things, preparing themselves for The Vibrators.

Also, I will try to include a couple of extra bits and bonus info when your read it on my blog. What’s the Glutster.com exclusive tidbit for this post? Hmm….well, The Airliner has an open kitchen that serves gourmet fries all night long! Veggie tempura fries with Wasabi Aioli? Hell yeah!

Ohh yeeah, I discovered that I write best (i.e. don’t over-think, therefore way faster!) when I am a little buzzed. Those craft beers happened to be a sampler 12 pack from Red Hook Brewery, plus I took a little mini shot of some Jager, haha.

Drinking and writing is so much fun!
