A few things to note about me:
• The only song I can karaoke is “Paul Revere”.
• I’ve had a crush on Adam Horovitz as far back as I can remember.
• My best friend Josh and I have text conversations comprised solely of Beastie Boys‘ lyrics.
• I risked my life in middle school to sneak a tape of Licensed to Ill out of my older brother’s room.
In May of 1995 I saw the Beastie Boys perform at the CSU Convocation Center touring for Ill Communication.
Aside from the show itself, the two things I remember are: I was wearing a navy blue Boy Scouts button down shirt (complete with merit badges) that I got for 25 cents at the thrift store; and at the end of the show, Ad-Rock, handed my friend Jesper a 2 gallon jug of water which—God love him—he poured over my head in the parking lot.
