MY WINTER CONCERT DIARY

 

Instructions: One player solicits the blank words (verb, name of car, etc.) from the other players, and fills in the diary. The completed diary is then read back.

 

Jan. 26. Even though I was hung over from drinking all night at ____________ (NAME OF BAR), The Asylum Street Spankers show at Diesel made me feel better. They did a song about a haunted ____________ (HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCE) that was pretty funny.

Jan. 30. After seeing Lee Rocker shake the Thunderbird Café, a new tattoo was in order. I got a ____________ (NAME OF CAR) inked across my shoulder. Sweeeeet.

Feb. 2. Incommunicado, plus LaGrecia, Northern Aggression and American Armada, at Mr. Roboto Project. What can I say? Their sound was ____________ (ADJECTIVE) but also ____________ (ADJECTIVE).

Feb. 5. Glad I got to Garfield Artworks early for Ra Ra Riot. Hung out with the band on Penn Ave. Cool -- and I traded the bassist my ____________ (BRAND OF BEER) for a ____________ (NAME OF SMALL OBJECT).

Feb. 26. Good crowd for RTX at the 31st Street Pub, but later my ____________ (BODY PART) really hurt. A lot.

March 5. Henry Rollins rolled into the Rex Theatre. Of course, he was better when he was at ____________ (NAME OF LONG-CLOSED CLUB), but whatever -- he was still pumped up and mad. He said the president was about to invade ____________ (NAME OF COUNTRY), but that nobody cared. Whatever.

March 15. Yeah, Bon Jovi rocked the Mellon Arena -- they still got it goin' on, but Daughtry opened. That dude is ____________ (ADJECTIVE). But was ____________ (NAME OF LOCAL MUSIC CRITIC) even at the same show? What does "____________ (VERB ENDING IN ‘-ING)' the crowd" mean anyhow? Probably be happier at home with some ____________ (NAME OF YOUR LEAST FAVORITE BAND CDs).

March 18. I wore my ____________ (NAME OF '70s BAND) T-shirt to see Drive-By Truckers at Mr. Small's. The drummer was wearing a ____________ (NAME OF ANOTHER '70s BAND) shirt. Funny.

March 25. Diary, I'm telling only you this, but I just saw Avril Lavigne at the A.J. Palumbo Center. That ____________ (ARTICLE OF CLOTHING) she was wearing was so cute!!! In my dreams, she and I ____________ (VERB) together.
