By Double O Joe We sat in a Los Angeles parking lot style traffic jam on the Rhode Island highway, our speedy trip to the show now an impossible dream. The kids in the cars around us kept jumping out to piss in the bushes or change seats. Basically it was a slow moving tailgate party, which is fine if you don't have a life, but we do. L7's road crew is a precision machine,
