Maroon 5? Jesus.
Fuck yeah, last minute hookup for Little Dragon at Sonos tonight.
1. Flying Lotus/Boris tie
3. Little Dragon
7. Angel Olsen
8. Blood Orange
9. Presidents of the USA
10. Blood Brothers
Of the seven times I've seen them, I caught them do "Strings" just once in 2008. I wish their final show was more than a short opening set, but beggars can't be choosers and them playing before...
Nah, getting kicked in the face during "Twice" will ruin the moment, and that's the night I get back from CMJ in NYC and Slowdive/one-off Asobi Seksu reunion in Bahstin. Erah.
I was heading for the exit and sat down to catch my breath for some flying lotus. And holy shit, so glad I did. Best set of the night. Not going to bother with the strokes.
Scratch that, they still can't arena properly. Only one entrance and it is a huge clusterfuck to get inside for darkside. Arena isn't at all full, either. And if you want to move from floor to seats...
In the back of the arena for Daniel Avery right now and it isn't at all crowded. Lots of breathing room on the floor and entire sections of seats empty. Not to mention, nobody is being turned away....
An early opening would have helped yesterday. I was one of the first few hundred in because I cut that mile-long line that went down the street right before they opened the gate (was talking to...
Seconded on Boris.
Broment of the night: as Atsuo was crowd surfing during the last song, these frat dudes took advantage of the chaos and pushed several people off the rail so they could take a...
Yeah, no Darkside for me unless they open the seats. Ugh.
So bullshit aside, boris, Slowdive, little dragon, slint, angel Olsen were all ace. Great sound all around, too.
Want food? Hope you have an hour (or two for lobster). 2009 lives on.
Need caffeine or electrolytes? Too bad because Coke and Gatorade are apparently contraband. Just wasted the last 40 minutes on...
The air conditioning in the arena feels so good.
Security's thorough searches started at 2:10, they let people scan their wristbands and enter at 2:15.
$18 is ridiculously expensive, but it is the west coast. They are so good that I will probably grab one over the weekend, though.
Yup. Inside now.
I'm guessing Damon Albarn and St Vincent due to the absence of west coast shows.
Free White Lung show tomorrow at Space 15Twenty. Get wristband at the nearby Urban Outfitters.
Aw, a proper place to sit would have been a nice break for some of those arena sets.
Boris/Grimes and Blood Orange/Darkside overlaps are unfortunate, as is missing run the jewels, but overall it...
If he did Coachella, would that be his longest US tour ever?
Good to know. Isn't Blood Orange going away soon as well? I agine flylo and darkseid will both be in the arena.
They're at that point where they are too big to really do much at festivals but headline.
Yeah, more of a going back to doing their own things for a while kind of thing. In any case, their set is a top priority for Sunday.
If they ever play, Imagine Dragons will do so in 2016 with a new album, and as headliners. :puke
If the doors open at 7, maybe 30-45 minutes.
I got in for night 1 of Karen O.
Iceland Airwaves has great package deals. Ticket, flight (out of New York, Seattle, Denver), hotel for $1100-1300 last I checked.
11/15 – Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa – Rancho Mirage, CA
11/17 – Fox Theater – Oakland, CA
11/19 – Shrine Auditorium – Los Angeles, CA
11/22 – The Pearl – Las Vegas, NV
Wow. That lineup and that price should have sold tickets. Sad for everyone that was flying out for it.
Darkside in the dark of an arena sounds better than outside.
Dance acts in the arena is probably the best way to take advantage of it.
I remember the beach seemed to have as many people as the pier, and they apparently couldn't hear a thing at Cults. I had no problems hearing anything on the pier, though.
Wonder how things will...
How was it compared to Coachella?
Well, maybe you should. It would require actually being into music rather than a list of things to brag about, though.
Yeah, a story about almost blacking out and going to the hospital because of...
Outkast at NOS 9/20 with Childish Bambino, Flosstradamus, Lil B
All three posts in the past week about two just-finished and one upcoming show? Wow, poor baby, you must be the most fragile turd in the bowl.
Second only to Thrice, of course.
So if they do LA, that would likely be on the 25th or 26th while I'm in NYC/Boston. Yay. Well, good thing I went to both this weekend, even if I did get heat...
Apparently Rage Against the Machine reunited last night, but under the name Warpaint. Or at least the crowd reacted to their set as if they were. You know it got too rough when I had to give up my...
Someone find me. Boreddddd
Yeah, it's so far. Saturday was my first time (Burger a-go-go). Since Warpaint isn't doing any full sets in LA, I gotta go.
As for pre-gaming, here's a Home Depot and Carls Jr nearby.
Warpaint at the Observatory tomorrow and the Ace on Sunday, anyone?
Last week I grabbed Low & Dirty - In the Fishtank on vinyl at Amoeba for $5. And the Warpaint remixes 12"
Mish Way told me to check them out at Sled Island, but I had plans with friends to see Dan Deacon and B.A. Johnston (this guy is unbelievably awesome), which was a blast.
How bad are we talking? Going for the first time this weekend for Burger a-Go-Go.
I guess my new favorite would be Emmy the Great's guitar.
Crazy. if it were the previous weekend, I'd go.
Lol self-described "genius"
