Van Halen Tonight

I’m going to Van Halen in Oakland tonight, and it’s sort of an historic occasion for me. 

 The last time I saw Van Halen at the Oakland Arena – or whatever the hell it’s now called – was my first arena rock show - 1981 on the Fair Warning tour. I was a week out of eighth grade. I feel like a 40-year-old geek, but I’m totally stoked to go again tonight for a couple reasons:

1) I saw them a few weeks back in Sacramento and they were great; funny enough, the best I’ve seen them since Dave left the band.

2) I’m going with a bunch of the same high school buddies with whom I went to all those great Van Halen shows in the ’80s. We’ll be in the north parking lot a couple hours before the show. If you see me, stop and say hi. I’ll talk about the show on my blog tomorrow. Anyone else going tonight should feel free to chime in.
