    Taylor's elephant shirt was cool, too, but I knew the one with the retarded fox on it was the one for me.
    When I found out, two days shy of my four-hour drive to The Masquerade in Atlanta, that I’d be going alone, the mewithoutYou show suddenly took on new meaning—I’d have to cover all my gas now and figure out what to do with my second pre-purchased ticket. That’s where Facebook, the hotel room my brother’d already booked, and a couple old ex-Valdosta friends with similar musical tastes came in handy. It also didn’t hurt that they gave me a cheap Kroger plastic-cup-of-wine before the show or that I was vaguely familiar with the show’s second opening act, Kevin Devine.
