Yes, I also got 2.  Anyone else?


- If you're talking about Purple Blue, I got four inserts.  Got one 
signed by all members except Mark, who is easy too find anyway.  Also 
got my Peter, Love Tara, and Elevator To Hell, Broken Girl, Eric's 
Trip and Orange Glass singles signed.  All members except Mark Gaudet 
were present and playing at a Sappy Records night at the Esquire, was it
Sat. Feb. 3?  I think so.  
Broken Girl played a short set (among the songs I recognized were 
dance music, laugh with me, and i don't remember what else).  Next 
was a Moncton band called Supervillain, on Superbob records i do 
believe.  After was Moonsocket, with Chris on guitar and Rick White 
on drums.  It's neat watching Rick White play, he's all hunched over 
the kit.  The final act was Orange Glass, which I only recently 
started getting into.  I really liked their show.  I found that they 
had a really good sense of dynamics, bringing the intensity down, 
then up again at good moments.  The only song I remember distinctly 
was Fate (see you dancing at the Kacho, won't be long now before you 
know). So everyone was a Sappy artist except supervillain.
It never ceases to amaze me how nice and friendly the members of 
Eric's Trip are to their fans.
