The Best of Showpaper "I Saw You," Edition Two

Quick refresher: Showpaper is a list of all-ages shows in the Tri-State area, a biweekly newsprint one-sheet that harkens back to the days of punk flyers and Xeroxed fanzines. But the most unfailingly superb part of Showpaper is a regular sidebar called "I Saw You," a kind of Missed Connections for DIY kids. These blurbs are hilarious and horn-doggy, flirty and fickle. So a while back, we republished five of the best. Five more awesome blurbs from over Showpaper's lifespan of 48 issues are below.
