Tim and Eric who?

What’s the big A’s music scene coming too? ‘Course, I’ll admit I’ve been outta the loop for awhile. The last concert I went to was local dude Paul Davis at The Great Southeastern Music Hall. Pretty laid back in those days with beer in buckets and reefer smell in the air. At intermission, Paul used the bathroom urinal next to the one where I was whizzing. We talked while we stood there and then both went on about our business. I don’t want to pee with Tim and Eric.
