    I haven't been to the El Rey in about 6 years. Where's the best place to park?

    Side streets. Just kind of circle. Also, in front of the Goldenvoice building is a good bet.

    Yelle w/ We Are the World was a great show! Also saw Polyphonic Spree just before the 2nd album was released and I saw people in the audience wearing the robes and was all like "WTF!".

    The Knife was the second best thing I've seen there, and MBV was a close third, but neither could stand up to Joanna Newsom doing all of Ys.

    Why not? There were tons of us board folk there. We hopped on the tickets super early.

    God, the wait to actually see them was so bad. There was supposed to be an opener, but they never showed and weren't replaced, but the Knife still went on at the same time. Still worth it, for sure. And, I think that was the first time I met Jeff and Dani.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they come around again. I wonder how awesome the Knife show would be after having seen the DVD and Fever Ray and all that. Part of it was just the surprise of seeing something so different. The stage show was incredible though.

    APTBS were transcendent (aside from going overboard on the strobe at the end).

    The Big Pink were terrible; I left early along with a good chunk of the rest of the crowd

    actually thank god for that strobe because i would have got zero decent pics without it.


    the big pink were utter rubbish. they played some new songs which sounded worse than their old songs, if that was even possible. also was there even a crowd at this show? they should have moved it somewhere smaller...

    APTBS were good as always. I thought The Big Pink were good, but dragged things out a bit too much. They had upped the stage presence since the last show (I think they have a new guy doing electronics, unless the old guy grew his hair out and decided to start dancing) but it came off as kind of strange and unnatural to me. They only played one new song and did a cover of "These Arms of Mine" by Otis Redding (which I thought was rad...they did it last time too.)

    I'm not sure what you are talking about re: crowd size. The room was pretty full.

    the room looked full but wasn't really that packed for the el rey, b/c TBP inspired a steady/slow trickle of people out the door

    Show last time was pretty good. I thought the Big Pink were good, but their slow songs kinda killed the mood. I thought their new song was great. A Place to Bury Strangers were awesome. Surprised they didn't play, I Know I'll See You.

    Actually, I have to concede that Supres is kind of right on this one. I had never listened to a couple of The Knife's songs on MySpace, but was in no way acquainted with them. I liked it enough that when Tessa told me she could get Jen and me in for free, I figured it would be worth it. And then we walked in during their first song and I was like "what the FUCK is this???"

    Still in my top 5 shows ever. Even though a lot of the specialness is because it was such a blind-siding, I think it would still kill without the element of surprise. I hope Bryan's right and we all eventually get another shot at it.

    And yet, I would trade that show for this one...

    I was lucky enough to catch Digitalisms monstrous Live set at the El Rey, and one of The LCD shows in 2007. Other than that, I need to get more familiar with the El Rey.
    Superfan will be in front of the Fonda masturbating furiously to a photo of him taking a photo of a band. Set is from 8:05 to approximately 8:05:15. Guest list only.

    Upcoming Shows: Nocturnal Wonderland Saturday, Cut Chemist/Dj Shadow - Palladium, Massive Attack SB Bowl, Festival Supreme, Coachella 2015
