hey james...if you want to get technical, the 10 year anniversary was a 
few weeks ago.  They did the show before the Another Roadside Attraction 
tour kicked off which is why it made it a bit more special that the Oils 
interrupted their family vacation and did that show.  I think it 
occurred near the end of their 3 week vacation.  That was a cool tour, 
and the SARS-stock music festival last week reminded me of the only 
music festival I went to...the Hip sucked on that tour but i have to 
give them credit for putting the whole event together.
