music: gimme skelter!!
if you haven't picked up this amazingly wonderful cd then i strongly suggest that you go out and get it right away. you can't go wrong with a buddyhead compilation full of bands such as Mudhoney, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Dead Meadow, Le Tigre, Wire, Weezer and Iggy!! and i can't forget a band called shat doing "what the fuck do you think christina aguilera is doing right now?" it's the bonus track.
It's chalk full of screaming voices and fuzzy guitars. simply fantastic.
before i forget... did you hear that SLAYER is going to be playing saturday?! I would totally go if it weren't going to be at the Universal. I read that they are going to be doing the full "Reign in Blood" album plus a full set. that would be amazing!! also Pat Benatar is going to be at Ameoba at 2pm Friday Dec 12th "hit me with your best shot" ;)
I also just read that at the Viper Room this Monday Dec 1st is going to be Metal Shop as usual but Black & Blue are playing! Now I'm wondering if it's the same Black N' Blue that I was into in my so-called "metal" years?! if it is...... I wanna go. oh but i'm planning on going to the el rey to see the pernice brothers anyway.
i just got home from spaceland. I wasn't gonna go but then my friend scott called and wanted to go see a band so i suggested we go to spaceland. The Rolling Blackouts were great. It's like one of those bands that you enjoy while watching them right at that moment but two days after you don't really remember much of what they sounded like. don't get me wrong, i do love this band and I'll go see them again and again. I think it's just that they don't have catchy songs. and thats fine with me. I love music with heavy guitars and screaming voices. I absolutely love it!! bands like blue bird, fu manchu - stoner rock if you will. it's all like that. great though.
i didn't like kittens for christian at all. scott said they sounded like korn, i'll have to take his word on that as i've somehow avoided that whole music scene in my life and never heard a full song of theirs. the guys couldn't sing, they didn't even have the guitar stance down. ha ha! the drummer was annoying to say the least. they just sucked.
i think i'm going to spaceland tomorrow night as well (saturday). besides my friend the ever so lovely sara melson playing, this Argentinean woman by the name of Juana Molina is the headliner. please check out her website, it's pretty cool. have a great w/e, whatever you do - S
