Erica and I enjoyed the Format show on Sunday night at Station 4 in St. Paul. Lindsi was there! I love Minnesota - everywhere I go, I see someone I know (also talked to a girl from the Boston 2004 trip).
The main room with the stage was alcohol free, so to drink beer you had to go up where the bar was and watch through a couple openings in the wall. Erica and I hung around long enough to get to the front of one of these and so we stayed there the rest of the night. It was above the crowd and a lot less sweaty.
They played lots of old songs that I could sing along to and some new songs that make me want to buy the CD. The people behind us where fun and cool. The girl next to us couldn't stop texting. Who is so important that she could put it away for a couple hours?
