superchunk at mergefest

I can't adequately express how much I wish I could have caught the Superchunk set at last weekend's Mergefest. I've heard that they will quit touring soon as Laura is pregnant. Hopefully someone taped the show and I can get mp3s of the set someday.

Sigh.

Comments:

Yeah, same here. I consoled myself by going out and getting the "Old Enough 2" compilation. It' of course, rocks. Keep playing the Lambchop song on the 1st disc,"Your Fucking Sunny Day," over and over..
And I'm upset to learn that Laura got herself knocked-up without me. That's no way to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the crush that I've had... bitch

I have no idea who Superchunk, Mergefest, or Laura are, but for the sake of the little one, I sure hope people in the Mergefest audience weren't smoking.

Glad Laura's taking a break for the sake of her baby, whoever she is.

The Cat's Cradle (the venue) despite being smack in the middle of North Carolina, is a smoke-free zone!
