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.
U were standing by the grill @ the Unamplified BBQ, turnin’ over sausages. I was the short girl w/ white-rimmed glasses & black shirt. U let me try a little bite but I wanted all of yr sausage.
