You don't like the Hidden Cameras or the Magnetic Fields either, do you?

It's killing me that I WILL be in NYC right then, but won't be able to attend.

The announcement 'secret band' always makes me get my expectations up way too high. If it turns out to have been The Aislers Set and I was right around the corner but not there, I'll hate my future son forever.

Not really.
