Local boy doing well...

Tonight I'm going to see my old buddy, Joe Sib, do his one man show at the Improv.

I first met Joe, at a party my sister's boy friend was having, sometime in the 80s. We got into an argument because he told my sister to shut up and I yelled at him. He promptly apologized and we have been friends since.

He's done quite well for himself, first as a punk musician/frontman for the band Wax (they had a hit in the 90s "Southern California" and one of their songs is in the movie "Mallrats."). He then went on to start a record label for punk/indie bands called "Side-One Dummy." The biggest band on that label is probably Flogging Molly. He's also a popular alternative music DJ. Now, he's a one man show talking about growing up Punk.

I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of old buddies tonight at the show, and if he's coming through your town, go to his show, you'll hear funny stories about what it was like to be punk in the 80s where I live. Frank can't go because he has to attend a City of San Jose Chamber of Commerce Dinner and the key speaker is James Carville. Now turn off the music in my sidebar and check out a clip from his show.

I listened to the clip of Joe's show - sounds like a lot of fun.

I think it's funny how you two became good friends after you yelled at him. Good for you for sticking up for your sister!
