best celeb spotting at shows (2008)

JAMES IHA

It's an unspoken rule that you should appear unfazed when you see a celebrity in person. That's why it's been sorta funny to see everyone notice but, er, not notice the ubiquity of JAMES IHA at many of the city's venues for the last few months. The co-founder of Scratchie Records looks just like any other rocker checking out a show at the Knitting Factory—there's no V.I.P. attitude or treatment—and rumor has it he's scouting local talent. Hell, I'd rather see him than Billy Corgan any day.
