my first MMJ show was this Koka Booth show. I was supposed to see them at the National in winter 2008 but Jim's stage accident canceled that one. Good show, the next night however... :)
Don't you ever turn it off

I was supposed to be at that National show too.  That was going to be my second time seeing them and first show at that venue.  I also had tickets for one of their Chicago shows that got cancelled because of Jim's fall.  My sister was living in Chicago back then and I "conveniently" planned to visit her when MMJ was there.  I had my flights so still went.  So no MMJ and still looking for live music, we ended up seeing The Whigs open for The Kooks.

crowd at mpp was electric.  from the opening kentucky derby taps to the move on up it was just killer.  and jim was on fire.

looking forward to watching shaky knees tonight.  thanks boys!
