Because I've long aspired to be a 28-year-old man at a Third Eye Blind concert, I attended their semi-secret “urban disruptor mechanism“-transported gig last night at Bottom of the Hill. The show itself was definitely a music concert, and the sea of people who hit puberty around 1997 were thrilled for what seemed to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience to hometown big name perform in a local small venue. But the real hit happened when lead singer Stephan Jenkins—wearing the same flag-patched leather jacket he wore 16 years ago—shared his thoughts on Valencia Street between songs:
“We're right at that moment before Valencia turns to complete shit.”
Damn, pretty rough call from the guys that filmed the video for their breakout hit in front of Boogaloo's.
