foot set.

club foot set 8/31/09: JOHN HUGHES TRIBUTE EDITION.

this was awesome and uh pretty unbelievably packed (!?!). also a perfect theme in which to utilize my endless knowledge of 80s pop culture, sigh. every song in this set was either: 1) used in a John Hughes film, 2) by a band whose song was in a Hughes film, and/or 3) by a band referenced in a John Hughes film (poster on a bedroom wall or whatever). also i had to disregard my usual "never play the same band/artist twice in one set" rule because i just had to.
