I am going to "from the Jam" as well, and can't wait to here the songs live. They palyed at UMD in 82 or 83, and I have oftened kicked myself for not going. I know it won't be the real think without Weller, but should still be fun. Also, I did see the Stranglers a few times, and Hugh was really the best part. I am hoping he has a sharp young band and can still pull it off.

one would need to be pretty trashed before the Hold Steady actually sounded tolerable.
