QotD: No shouting on the bus!

What was your most memorable or favorite school field trip?

Growing up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. meant the field trips tended to be a round of rides on the Metro into one Smithsonian museum after another. I have vague memories of a disastrous trip to the National Zoo that may have culminated in both losing a camera and getting birdshit-bombed.

What was your first concert?

Summer of '92! Arrested Development at the old 9:30 Club. Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy opened. It was dark and smoky and jostly. I'm going to say I probably drank ginger ale or some kind of soda, because I can't remember whether I had turned 21 yet. I was close enough to scream myself hoarse hollering lyrics back at the stage, but not to get hit by sparks when Rono Tse fired up the machinery.
