    I may have been mistaken about the rave in question. I think I went to something where The Crystal Method was headlining. But it was that summer, it was in the strip district, and it was right before I left Pgh.

    Bathroom 'liquid'-pee dancing is still up for debate.

    Hey guys, I had alot of fun doing this podcast with you. I just wanted to mention one thing, when you asked me what bands I liked I misspelled the name. James Brown is my all time favorite artist, but I want to give props to the local Steel City Music Scene. Donora is a top quality Pittsburgh based indie pop rock band that gets alot of radio play, you can hear them at http://www.myspace.com/donora

    If your on the soul/funk jamiroquai/erkyah badu tip like me, check out the local band Omega Love http://www.myspace.com/omegalovemusic they are ridiculously talented and they put on mean live shows. Enjoy guys,

    Respect,
    Barry
