Have You Touched the Girl Talk Table Yet?

Touching the table can be a difficult and dangerous task, but it means you're usually ready to complete the transition from mainstream>alt(bag) that Hipster Runoff talks about. Sometimes other fans can accidentally end up grabbing the front of your shirt, because their neon sunglasses were really fogged and they thought the front of your shirt was the table. For Bmore residents this process isn't quite as important as, say, touching Dan Deacon's sweaty Flintstones tee but it's pretty close, especially if you can get on your knees in front of the table so your face is like right next it.
