Depeche Mode in SD on my bday? hell yeah.
11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena
The Green Day show last night was great. The crowd I would say was too passionate, with everywhere yelling every single lyric and pushing to get up front. The first hour I was in the second row from the stage in front of Billie Joe, then I moved back towards the middle of the pit and the sound quality was tremendously better. Could finally hear how great a singer he is live without any disturbance. The setlist was very warmup like, but he put a lot of energy into it. Some of the songs were put on hold, while Green Day would do silly stuff or make something epic out of it and then resume. A lot of people got to go on stage, they also gave out a lot of customized GD guitar picks, t-shirts, and toilet paper. I had a fun time.

Green Day was indeed awesome and a lot of fun. Never seen Billie that emotional, be it his first show back from rehab or if thats how sober Billie is, but it was damn good. The setlist was "safe" at best. It was definitely "the first show back" doing a setlist similar to the 21st century tour with only 5 (of the 37!!!) new songs sprinkled in. Though some of the most played songs since they have come out gave some of the most powerful/emotional performances ie Letterbomb and Blvd of Broken Dreams. Obviously Billie has really taken some of his former lyrics to heart; it took him a solid 2 minutes of extra chanting to muster up the lyrics "Where will all the martyrs go when the virus cures itself? And where will we all go when it's too late?" before giving an obviously much needed release of energy.
The Rolling Stone article is incorrect in their setlist, as Green Day didn't follow the stage copy exactly. FOD got swapped out for Coming Clean which was great to hear as they never play it and was very appropriate for the circumstances of the show in Green Day history. That run of Kerplunk/Dookie/1039 songs with 2000 Light Years Away, Paper Lanterns, Coming Clean, When I Come Around, She, and then Basket Case was so so much.
99 Revolutions was a great opener, and Let Yourself Go could have fit in right with that run of old songs the way the crowd gets going to it. Stay the Night and Stop When The Red Lights Flash were also really great live. Oh Love, while pulled off exactly as it should be, was my time to take a couple photos.
Very excited about the upcoming tour. I think once the band gets their feet in the water again and rehearsing the setlists are going to be amazing with all the trilogy songs coming in. Stoked on my seats at the Sports Arena show!
O and of note, Idiot Club/Idiot Nation is the best fan club ever. We arrived at the venue maybe only an hour before the doors opened to be greeted with a line wrapping completely around the Fox. Never seen that before but hey its Green Day and it was a Sunday night. Going to will call for the tickets we were told there was an early entry line for the fan club and automatic floor passes. Really great experience even though I kind of felt bad going in before the people that were there since midnight-7am. Just kind of though

Now that the Key Club is gone, is it going to become another club or be leveled and redeveloped? Does anyone know?
it'll probably just remain empty for the rest of the year until a new owner comes in and buys it. The only thing you'll probably see will be a new sound system and possibly a new name (but most likely not since it's already established), the building will more then likely remain unchanged.
While in New Orleans this weekend, my brother and I decided at the last second to try to get into day 2 of Buku fest. We bought wristbands off of people leaving the fest early for $20 each and managed to see Passion Pit, Calvin Harris, SST9, and Nero. One of the stages was in this big warehouse filled with huge, crazy Mardi Gras floats. it was super fun. SST9 is a waaaaaaay more awesome band than i imagined. i will definitely be going out of my way to see them when they come around from now on.
The Key Club was consistently one of the most poorly run venues I've been to in my life.

Seeing Parenthetical girls this past weekend was great yet I left disppoint not competely by the band preformance yet just how they came on late because of other bands,they didnt have a proper sound check do they had a few instrument problems, and they had their set cut early.Besides that it was a good show.

Recently when I went to Club Nokia, we were being searched and we emptied our pockets. The person who searched me opened my wallet. My friend who's a lawyer started lecturing the door person about how illegal that was, a supervisor jumped in and apologized.
On March 5, 2004, Terror and some other bands played in LA. Chaos broke out with what appears to be a small riot. Continue reading to get the full story as reported by correspondent Marshall from the Warriors...
The staff here hopes that anybody injured is ok and that Doug (the gentle giant) doesn't get charges.
...as stated by Marshall of the Warriors. Let me break it down for you. The Whiskey A Go Go is a venue in Hollywood that runs hand in hand with the Roxy. At the Whiskey it's pay to play, which means that the bands have to give the venue 20% of what they make from merch. Last night Terror, Shattered Realm, Born From Pain (Holland), Internal Affairs, and The Promise played along with some other weird bands. Long story short, The Promise got $2,000 jacked from their merch box. This pissed everybody off. Rumor has it that the meathead/mafia bouncers while checking their bags in stole the money. I believe this to be true because the chances of somebody else doing it is highly unlikely. Anyways, this pissed everybody off. Also there was no stage diving allowed, which also pissed off a lot of people. The sign says "You stage dive, you go home." Well Terror proved that wrong when not even a quarter through the set Scott says "I need more stage dives. . .I need 20 stage dives right now! Who's gonna stage dive?! Is it you?. . .YOU!. . come on! This club means NOTHING TO ME!" And then all hell broke loose. Everybody started stage diving and one anonymous hardcore kid butt bombed off the stage right into like 3 bouncers in which they dragged him by the collar of his shirt out of the venue. Everybody rushed outside and the fight broke out. People ambushing the bouncers, people swinging metal beams at each other, kids and bouncers picking up trashcans and anything they could to hurt each other in the middle of Sunset Blvd, which obviously stopped traffic and a bus. Pure mayhem for about 5 minutes. Then the 3 huge ass bouncers that were fighting (with mouthpieces) rushed back inside to stop kids from re-entering. Some guys didn't like this . . . . . so they shatterd the windows of the club and talked shit to the bouncers for about 20 minutes before 6 cop cars came. Haha, to be honest the cops didn't know who to arrest because apparently the whiskey and roxy (mafia ran) pay off the cops and when shit goes sour they got their back. So Scott Vogel got gashed by a metal beam in the back of his head, blood everywhere, the Donnybrook, Terror, and Internal Affairs crew are tough as nails, it was the best Terror set EVER, the tall huge guitar player from Terror got arrested (despite the fact that he didn't do a damn thing, gentle giant) and most importantly hardcore left its mark and destroyed that corrupt shit hole. No more hardcore shows at The Whiskey. . . . .thank God.
Pretty bummed that Calvin Harris lands on April 12th but whatever, hate the Palladium anyways.
