My first concert ever was The Gin Blossoms opening up for UB40. I think I was about 12 or something like that; I can still laugh when I think about it.

That’s why it’s funny to me. Also, I remembered it smelled like Otto’s jacket once UB40 came on. Yeah, and it was in the Chicago suburbs, so that’s cool too.
