Sixteen Years Ago We Played Her Sweet 16th

Sixteen years ago, we played the 16th birthday party of Starla Ryan in Berlin PA. That was a half a lifetime ago. Literally. But we're delighted to report that she's still letting ApologetiX be a part of her life.
Starla's 16th birthday party was our 99th show ever. This Saturday, she plans to attend our 1306th show in Mount Savage MD. Here's a nice email we received from her this week:
I have been a fan of Apologetix since the very beginning. I knew you before you became popular. Back in 1995, you performed at my sweet 16 birthday party in Berlin, PA (Editor's Note: It was actually November 19, 1994 -- 16 years ago and four months ago).
Anyway, I think I may still have a VHS tape of the concert from my birthday party. If I still have it, I will bring it along to the concert this coming weekend in Mt Savage. I only live 15 minutes from there. My stepkids go to school there.
See ya this coming weekend! I am excited and hopefully you remember performing for me all those years ago. I've seen you in concerts since then but never got the chance to talk to you afterwards. I hope to talk to you this weekend.
