Tweeting Down Memory Lane w/R5 Productions

Tweeting Down Memory Lane w/R5 Productions

Yes, we think Twitter can be TMI, but it has it’s moments of hilarity and interesting info. This falls on the side of hilarity and interesting info to some. R5 Productions was going through their files in old hard drives and decided to share with us tweets down Memory Lane that shouldn’t be forgotten. Well, maybe some moments should have been forgotten, but they just won’t go away. And now lives on through the magic of the internet. Above is the M.I.A. flier that inspired this nice escape from whatever you are doing. Here are some of our favorites. It makes sense that some tweet happy guy “DIP LO” popped up. He was scheduled to open for RJD2. However, “The Dipper” got “too drunk” to perform, but “no one cared”. M83 was doing their 1st show ever in the U.S., but missed their flights so a friend had to pick them up. There was an e-mail where they asked “‘The New Promise Ring Band’ if this new band ‘The Arcade Fire’ could open up for them for $150”. Yes, “a Tokyo Police Club show at The Church was mentioned on Gilmore Girls”. Remember when Lady Sovereign had her meltdown at Silk City. Well, you can relive the train wreck again below. And in typical DIY fashion where you truly never know what will happen, there was the time when Explosions in the Sky were in town for their second show in Philly, but no one came to let R5 and the band in so they had to cancel. You can check out the other memories that made this chain here. Stay tuned for more. Enjoy! - The Deli Staff
