Matt Stairs

Kerry invited me to the Lancaster Barnstormers Season ticket holder pre-season party with a Q&A and autograph/picture session with Phillies 2008 World Series Winner Matt Stairs.  There was about 100 people in attendance and not all wanted pictures or autos so went through the line once and after it was over got to talk with Matt and signed some more cards.  See below for some pictures of what I got signed and his ring.

Red Dragon Cartel

Ben and I went Rams Head on Stage in Annapolis MD to see Red Dragon Cartel on Wednesday.  This is Jake E. Lee's band he is a former lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne (Bark at the Moon days) was also in Badlands.  First time we had been to this venue was interesting it has all tables and chairs small setting and no opening acts from what were told which was nice they went on at about 8:15 nd played about an hour and half.  I was able to get the set-list from the drum kit and a Jake pick and we hung out after the show and got some autographs.  See below for some pictures from the evening and set-list.

Steve Aoki

Last night I went to the spring concert at York College of Pennsylvania that featured Steve Aoki with warm up act DJ Money.  DJ Money was on for about 30 minutes.  Then Steve Aoki came out and did his thing for an hour and forty minutes.  I waited after the show for about an hour and was able to get a picture with Steve and a couple autographs.  The show was interesting I was probably the oldest person there except for maybe a couple professors that were there.  He went through 5 cakes launching them at the crowd I was no where near that activity if I was 20 I probably would be tho....
