Music: Hellacopters-payin' the dues / White Stripes st
You know who rocks?..... do ya?
A. The fucking Hellacopters! That's who.
Everytime i listen to *Payin' the dues* ... i actually have a vision of them just rocking out and it makes me smile. I'm talking a huge smile, *like who cares what people are thinking of me when i'm driving along and smiling all alone in my jeep*.. kinda smile!
This is one band or should I say one of the bands that I can see every night and still be interested and excited to see the very next night.... just as long as they change their pants!
The Backyard Babies are playing at the Troubadour on Aug. 11th... same sorta style maybe a little on the glam side. I've never seen them live and i'm excited about that!
I think The Hellacopters and Tom Waits should tour together!
You wanna know why? .... I'll tell ya why!
Because I can honestly say that both performers are my all time *and I do mean ALL TIME* favorite concerts I've ever seen. I think I would die of excitement if that ever happened though.
Someone should do an outdoor Pure Rock n' Roll festival with like only 10 bands and in someplace like Hawaii or somewhere other than the fucking coachella. Off the top of my head and the cd's that are near me right now.... I'd want to see: The Hellacopters, The Datsuns, The Vacation, Rooney, Verbena, The Hunches, The Dirtbombs, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Jet and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club!!!!!! fuck! ok 11. - The Willowz!! gheez i can't EVER forget them.
I can do a mellow Festival to: * I go both ways! *
... let's see: Jon Brion, Bob Dylan, Brendan Benson, Grant Lee Phillips, Minibar, Pernice Brothers, David Bowie, Wilco, P.J. Harvey and Buffalo Tom
Maybe it can be for two days..... day one *rock the fuck* day two *rock the sleep* because day two may put some people to sleep but only on a few songs.... it's all rock n' roll.
... just some rock n' roll thoughts that went through my head for about an hour today... thought i'd share.
Now I must eat! My plan for tonight is to go stand in line for Jon Brion until the doors open at 8:30, get a hand stamp or just show my face *i was here*, leave for the Troubadour to catch The Objectives *Erich* at 9pm, them come back to see Jon start playing at his usual 10:30. What a plan! The things one must do to keep oneself happy!
