Conan played Asheville... CA?

Conan came through Asheville, North Carolina (NC) in late February of 2018. They Played at a venue not far from where I live on the west side of town called The Mothlight.
My buddy J and I met up before the show. Coincidentally J & I used to both live in Oakland, California (CA) although we didn't really know each-other when we lived there.
In an effort to lay down a sturdy foundation for an evening of potential heavy alcohol consumption we met up at my place to grill a pizza beforehand. (side note, if you have never attempted to grill a pizza, it's a game-changer, go for it dude!)
February in Asheville is always a toss-up and that night we'd lucked-out, it was like 60 fuckin' degrees outside. So we were standing in my backyard, drinkin' a beer, and talking about how weird it was that we'd basically lived like a half mile apart on the other side of the country for years without ever actually meeting.
I pulled the pizza off jah grill - pepperoni - and J added our second topping - mushrooms.
We scarfed the pie & walked to the show.
For it's size, The Mothlight is one of the best sounding rooms I've ever had the pleasure to witness live music preformed in.

Conan was insane.

It's a good thing we each ate half a pizza. Hey booze.

Conan was fucking insane.

I could see Jon Davis' riffs, erupting in mid air.

Conan was absolutely fucking insane.

I could taste Chris Fielding's bass-tone-sludge, sloughing outta those cabs.

Conan was totally, absolutely fucking insane.

What a fucking unit. What a fucking set.

After the show I picked up a water from the bar, and this tour shirt from the merch table.
About a month later J and I were hanging out again. I happen to be wearing the shirt and he asked if I got a good look at the tour dates on the back.
I took it off, turned it over, and looked for The Mothlight show.
And there it was.

February 28: Asheville... CA.

Through a primitive elixir of friendship, fungus, and feedback we'd somehow forged our missed connection in California right here on the back of this goddamn T-shirt in North Carolina.
What does it mean?
Fuck if I know, their graphic designer was probably just stoned.
