The Traditional Conference Music Purchase

I have a little conference tradition.

At OSCON 2002, in San Diego, I wandered around for a few hours the day before the conference started. I stumbled into a small record shop with a nice selection of rock/alternative/indie and bought a CD, which I ended up listening to during any free time in my room. Any time after the conference that I poped in the CD I would think back to San Diego.

Since that time I've tried to do something similar and get out on the first or second day and grab some new tunes to listen to at the conference (typically in the night when I'm working on the laptop). For me, buying just one CD is difficult, but it actually works good to buy two or three in case one isn't so great.

I'm not sure if it's a "way to remember the trip" as much is it's an excuse to buy some music.
