What the fuck is up with the crazy prices for the G-n-R shows? So happy I went to the Forum show... and paid less than $30.
That said, if you missed the show at the Forum, I suppose $80 for the Palladium show isn't all that terrible. After all, Axl Rose is a national treasure.
I think Canadialand might explode from the joint enthusiasm and positivity you two will generate.
My name is Becca. Hi.
I found the meh button.

Wow, what a fantastic triple bill at the Troubadour tonight. I didn't get there in time for the first band, but Mikal Cronin and White Fence were among the better opening bands I've seen in quite some time, and Ty Segall was a fucking riot. I haven't paid attention enough to past setlists to realize that they cover Black Sabbath's Paranoid from time to time, fantastic way to close the show. I've never seen that venue that packed so early too, people showed up for the opening acts big time.
A-Trak killed it last night.
So did !!! on Wednesday.
Ty Segall tonight, not a bad week.
Not sure if it was posted (loool)
I'd go to this because it's in my city and they are kind of a guilty pleasure.

He did two sets. The first was I Get Wet in its entirety from start to finish. The second set he played about half of The Wolf, a couple songs from Close Calls With Brick Walls, and then a new song. The whole set was filled with such insane positive energy and the band sounded great. Also, the venue the show was at had no barricade in front of the stage, so the show was full of people getting on stage, singing along, then stage diving. I got on stage and sang with Andrew WK during "I Get Wet" and felt like $1,000,000. All in all, it was an amazing experience and this is a must see show for any Andrew WK fan.
Also, I met and chatted with Andrew WK for a bit before the show and he is just the coolest guy. I may have scored my band a spot on the Sled Island line up with Andrew WK too... but I don't know if he was just being nice. So it will be a bonus if that turns out. Any which way, I had a great weekend.
Yes! I just noticed there is a Dustin Wong show in Phoenix the weekend I'm there. Only 8 bucks a ticket also
Also, similarly to him telling you he'd get you on Sled Island, he once asked me if I wanted to play keyboard in his band. I believe he was 100% sincere at the time he made the offer but later realised it was crazy.
Jesus, i can't believe he's playing Close Calls songs. I need to go to this show when it comes around.
Yeah, he played a couple Close Calls songs in 2010 when I saw him. Glad The Wolf is getting fair representation as well. I'll be at the Pomona gig to kick off my spring break with some friends.
In related Glass House news, they will be announcing their 3 Coachella shows along with 3 Fox Theater shows tomorrow at 10am. So pulp, explosions in the sky, refused, arctic monkeys and some others w/ a slew of the smaller bands opening. Should be great. O and something else cool at 7am. GETTIN EXCITED.
