Well my favorite memory in Asbury Park is waiting 9 hours outside the Stone Pony with four of my best friends to see The Gaslight Anthem for FREE for the filming of their video for 45. Was an experience I'll never forget. Never heard of this band though

Favorite memory at lanes was the first time i went to go see the koffin kats and the hand me downs about 4 years ago. some fellow didnt like that i was moshing near him so he picked me up, threw me on the ground and punched me a few times in the face. in the midst of the scuffle my elbow flew backwards and tore open some random dudes face, who later had to go to the hospital for stitches.
Once brought back up to my feet i noticed a sharp pain in the side of my face, which would later result in temporary blindness and extreme light sensitivity in my right eye for about 5 days, on top of a terrible ringing in my ear...as luck would have it, this was 2 days before my sons christianing
needless to say, the rest of the show, despite the agony i was in, kicked ass

I was in town for the All Tomorrow's Parties Festival last year.
I was looking at some artwork by Shepard Fairey on the boardwalk and I heard a bunch of people screaming behind me. I turn my head and who do I instantly see in my peripheral? Flava Flav!
People, many of whom were not there for the festival and had no idea Public Enemy were in town, were freaking out. Flav was very personable, taking a picture with every person who asked. I managed to fumble around with my crappy phone to capture a picture with him before he said he had to go. I checked my phone, fingers crossed that the picture came out okay, and here was the result:

I'm coming up to Asbury Park from Atlanta, GA, to see this show whether or not I win.
