Just discovered Karen Dalton last year; love her!

Just saw Yo La Tengo Saturday night; loved it!

Kind of weird seeing Chuck introduce Paul Westerberg.

Hey Beth,

Check out the PW version of Can't Hardly Wait on SNL (via Youtube) . The drummer's call out mid song is hilarious.

You were the inspiration for posting that video by the way. Paul covered Wreckless Eric's Whole Wide World on that tour. (Seems so long ago now...) ;-) But your last mixed tape got me thinkin'!

Cheers,
Sean
