I had an experience where I was at a late-night party chatting with some guy named Mike for hours before I asked why he was at South By, and he said his band was playing. So I asked what band. NOFX. My immediate response was "Damn, I had your shit on cassette tape!"

Then he invited me to watch the show from side-stage, where they performed my all-time fave NOFX album Punk in Drublic from start to finish. My teenage self was dying.
