o what a awesome phrase for a venue.
I had grabbed Silent Should, but it didn't do much for me at the time. Then Pitchfork wrote about the live shows coming up, and they had a few pictures. That was all it took for me to know I had to go to that. Even if the music wasn't great (which it was: I grew to love that album) I knew the show would be special.
It was so packed I don't think they could have fit in any more people if they tried.
Gotta love the El Rey, I can get there 30min before doors and have my choice of spots. The "party people" don't usually show up till the headliner is about to go on.
...Juno Reactor @ the El Rey was awesome.
I was standing near MarkSovel and a member of Bauhaus who both independently proclaimed Io Echo to be the best band of the night and I absolutely agree. They definitely had the biggest crowd response out of all four bands. In my opinion their new work was brilliant. Active Child, who was also on the bill that night, were dreadful. APTBS were good/loud, and I thought Milo from the Big Pink had switched to bass until I read this post which said he wasn't even there.
ahh! yes seen The Knife and bought the very last Knife shirt which was sold out before they went on... Then playing cat and mouse smoking pot while security was scrambling.. then chatting up some pretty girls upstairs going to a party with em' afterwards.. Fucking El Rey is not bad!!!
It's just a typical mid-size guardrail venue with an overpriced bar. I guess it is the BEST of those though.
Wiz Khalifa there the day before my show here in SD...might try and hit that one up too so i can party during...
11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena
Erykah Badu at the El Rey...that's an instant classic.
