I went to see Jon Brion on Friday, surprise surprise. And It was an excellent show! here are some highlights: Beatles; baby you’re a rich man/ Under the radar – and – roll with you - and – happy with you – and – you made the girl all Jon Brion originals / Kinks; waterloo sunset / Brian Eno; Baby’s on Fire / George Harrison; Isn’t it a pity/Oasis; Supersonic / Elvis Costello; Peace Love and Understanding. I saw Sabrosa Purr last Tuesday at Tangier. They moved the stage to the other side of the room. I don’t like that set up anymore. They put tables up to the stage and there is standing room then behind that is a taller platform with more tables. They had a different set this time. they were very mellow but still rocked. They had to mention to the crowd that they are usually a noisy band. I’m really looking forward to seeing them tonight at the Echo at for free!
I like the comedian Greg Berhrendt, he has this show called “Bring the Rock” at the Largo sometimes; so I went to see him on Saturday night. It was just ok, there were to many guests doing the comedy thing instead of him this time. I love his stage band called “electric snowflake”. They come out and do a song which usually pertains to a funny story about a musician or rock band that the comedian on stage is telling. Another of my favorite comedians, Paul F. Tompkins is going to be there tonight. He’s a whiskey drinker and is very funny as well. The International Noise Conspiracy is playing at the Echo tomorrow night. I haven’t seen them since they opened for The Hives at the Roxy a few years ago. It’s only $5 bucks!
I’m also looking forward to The Pernice Brothers at the Knitting Factory on July 31st! Sons and Lovers are also playing at Zen Sushi that night, I’m going to try and make both!
It was so hot this weekend that my rearview mirror fell off. I had to go buy some special glue to put it back on; just thought I’d mention that exciting tid bit of news to ya! ha ha ps - who want's to go see the devils rejects this week!! i love Rob Zombie!
They don't even know what it is to be a fan. Y'know?
To truly love some silly little piece of music, or some band,
so much that it hurts.
I always tell the girls never take it seriously.
If you never take it seriously then you never get hurt.
If you never get hurt then you always have fun, and if you ever get lonely
you can just go to the record store and visit your friends.
