PostSubject: Hello!    Mon Jul 30, 2012 12:22 am

After lurking for awhile, I thought I should register. Been listening to the guys since early 2008. It had been about 15 years since I first heard a band that affected me like TGA. They immediately went right up to my top 3 favorite bands and never left (REM and The Cure being the other 2). Like so many of you, I find it nearly impossible to put into words how much I admire, respect, and just love their music. Never had the opportunity to meet them. Living in the Southern US, I feel that I sometimes miss some of the Jersey references, though! Embarassed We also don't get the chance to see them nearly as much as you lucky folks in the north!

Looking forward to joining you guys! Super impressed with everything I have been reading and your dedication and love for the band. Very Happy

Marla

Hi Marla,

Yeah, you chose a good forum to join. As Mr. Fallon says, "It's a great place to check out and hang with some really nice people." Smile

Oh, and yes there's a bunch of dedicated folks on here... or crazy folks. One of the two. scratch

Hi Marla, I'm Shannon. Welcome to the forum! Smile There are so many terrific people around here (dedicated and crazy like Konrad said!) and we have a lot of fun.

If you don't mind my asking, what part of the South do you live in? I live in VA and Gaslight never plays near my town. Someday I hope they do though!

Hi Marla! I'm Beth and I just joined here last week. It's great to have people to talk TGA with!

I live in the north but have only seen them once (last week). I'm definitely looking forward to seeing them more!

Thanks! I'm in Georgia. I was able to see them in 2009 and 2010, so we are way overdue for an Atlanta show!

Hi Marla!

Welcome! I've been to Georgia a couple times (mostly driving through) but it's a wonderful state from what I've seen. You southern peeps are really nice too (it's almost unnerving for someone who lives in the NY-NJ-CT tri-state area).

If you want to get the Jersey references, the easiest way is to do two things. 1) Go to Asbury Park 2) ask Jersey people haha. Then you can be like me who gets (almost) all the references but feels weird about it b/c I'm not from Jersey.

I'm like "yeah Cookman! I've seen that sign a ton of times...but I don't live there" *hides face*.
