Eight years ago today, I went on my first date with Katy. I had driven to Kettering, Ohio, overnight and arrived early in the morning. Later that day, we went to see the first Lord of the Rings movie. Then she took me to see local band, Shrug, perform at Canal Street Tavern, one of the coolest venues I have ever been to.
What she didn’t know, however, was that Jettingham was opening for Shrug. We had never heard of the band, and there I sat with her on our first date, with this Blink 182-wannabe band taking the stage. It played a song titled something like, “We Didn’t Sleep Together, We Were Just F*cking.” Later, the singer announced that the band was proud to be on the soundtrack for American Pie 2.
