Okay, dammit Asbury Lanes, you may have won me over with the inclusion of Thursday. College-age Varacchi is excited for that one, but other than that, the rest of this lineup falls flat. The thing is, that is just evidence that supports my argument that the 'new' Lanes isn't meant for me; I can have my memories of shows there, but the new venue is for new kids to see new bands and create new memories.
