    I only went to the 2nd night and it was fantastic. The epic Stockholm Syndrome was insanely good and the aforementioned Bliss made me very happy.

    If you get there at a reasonable time neighborhood parking should be fine just pay close attention to the signs...

    And if you do find a spot, don't be too busy talking with your friend about how you skipped out on stacked parking and not having to pay. make sure you remember exactly it is what street your on. Walking back after the show after smoking and drinking all the turn offs into the neighborhood look the same ...

    The Hives outdoors at Pappy & Harriet's were absolutely entertaining fun. I had no idea the lead singer and drummer were so HOT. Gay vibes galore. The lead singer channeled Mick Jagger & Freddy Mercury with his moves. The curly haired guitar player was absolutely nuts - in a good way - and he loved having the ladies in the crowd run their fingers through his thick, curly hair. I don't know how I missed them at Coachella. Oh yeah, their music was great, too! :-)

    Maria Minerva was fucking weird and great tonight. Just her up there assaulting a microphone and tons of effects/keyboards. Crazy deconstruction of electronic dance music with live super-reverb vocals and live keyboard. Wild shit... she started with like a 5 minute harsh noise segment to wake up everyone in the bar and then proceeded to throw some really fat dance beats at us, had everyone grooving by the end of the set. Very cool, check her out if she's around. On Not Not Fun records

    Peter Gabriel is still, most definitely, the man. He did a near-2 hour, career spanning set at the Bowl tonight. The tour he's doing currently has him performing So from front to back (although not necessarily in order) as well as a smattering of his other material. It started with him and Tony Levin on stage doing a new, sparse track, then going into three other songs acoustically with the full band: Come Talk to Me (which was gorgeous), Shock the Monkey (I was concerned because it was acoustic, but they nailed it) and Family Portrait. Halfway thru Portrait, just like on the album, the band kicked into electric mode, and they went into the second set, which was the smattering. He did three more songs off Us (Digging in the Dirt, Secret World and Washing of the Water), two songs from the first album (Solsbury Hill and The Family and the Fishing Net) and a balls-out awesome version of No Self Control. I thought that would be the highlight of the night for me, but it turns out So is really a fantastic album from front to back. They played it, for the most part, in the order of the original CD release. The only change was that they moved In Your Eyes to the last track of the regular set, probably so they could more easily coordinate John Cusack coming on stage with boombox over his head and handing it to Peter. Because, yeah, that really happened.

    Then they did an encore with The Tower That Ate People from OVO, which was so fuckin' great, and closed the night with a massive sing-along to Biko. I had tears streaming down my face as I screamed, "Hear the martyr! Hear the martyr! The man is dead, the man is dead..." So yeah, Peter Gabriel's got it. Hard.

    Peter Gabriel put on one of the best shows, if not the best show, I've seen this year. I dunno if it was my good seats, but the sound was just killer. The Hollywood Bowl never gets especially loud but it could not have suited PG better. Tonight was my 10th time seeing him and surely ranks in the top 3. He broke the show down into three segments/sets- one an acoustic set, one an electric set of hits/PG classics, and one for all of So, back to front.

    Highlights musically were numerous including a driving Family Snapshot and a calming take on Come To Talk To Me. Visually he delivered with a flashy version of No Self Control which took me back about 25 years. Red Rain and Excellent Birds really shined from So. The armed lights used during the So tour I saw in 1987 made an appearance, updated from just one beam to three beams per pod. I just cannot get over the production! The Tower That Ate People was used as an encore and really capped off the visual assault. Typical PG glory with his voice in top form. Gotta get to work on making it up to Santa Barbara on Tuesday.

I held off on buying SB tickets and now realize I need to figure it out.

    A couple more thoughts on tonight-

    I've never been a big fan of Family and the Fishing Net off Security. But Peter loves it. He often plays it on tour. I missed both San Jacinto and Rhythm of the Heat from that album. Also, Up was not represented at all. I expected maybe Signal To Noise or Darkness. But ok. I'm just nitpicking at this point!

    Btw, In Your Eyes was the last track on the remastered version of So. It was always going to be the last song of the set and he normally closes with it and usually encores with Biko (like tonight). Nice little bit with Cusack.

    Peter Gabriel was amazing and blew the lid off the joint. Although the opener sucked and should stick to playing coffee shops. She was embarrassing and sucked the life out of the bowl, but Gabriel came on and brought it back.

    You do know she was the main singer for Don't Give Up and most of the backup singing throughout PG's performance, right? I agree with you on the whole. But Peter often gives either people on his label or artists who play in the main part of his show a chance to open up for him.

    Yes Sir. I was hoping for Kate Bush and got whatever her name was. A guy can dream can't he. Obviously I am being tough on her as her voice was fine, but its Peter Gabriel!

    Anyone going to New Order tomorrow? Should be fun.

    My advice is to put on Melt, drink a few cocktails and pretend like it's 1980 when random sex was still ok. I do that sometimes. Hell, I used to go to parties where that's exactly what was happening... back in the day. I'm old.

    You and me both. compadre. She eschews touring these days. Too bad. But the new girl (Jennifer something) did alright with PG's material. Better than Melanie Gabriel.

    I am still mulling over a last minute dive into the New Order show. No Peter Hook and $100+ tickets hurt. But... thinking...

    I really wanted to see Mono. Tough night in general for shows in LA. Hey, we have a plethora of riches here! Sometimes it keeps me from seeing bands I would like to check out. I had PG tickets for months in advance and there's no way I would have put Mono over him.

    Yup, yet Explosions in the Sky gets talked about quite a bit. Crazy world we live in. I've seen Mono twice and they were fantastic both times. I would be seeing them a 3rd time on Wednesday, but I'm seeing The Helio Sequence instead. Just going with the band I've never seen.

    Because they were playing the same night as Peter Gabriel, and he was just too massive.

    The Maccabees were so damn good last night at the Indy! Played a solid 75 minute set that was very professional and dynamic. The new stuff sounded even better than I had hoped. So glad they broke away from the Flo tour to do a headline set in my neighborhood venue last night!

    As already mentioned Peter Gabriel was astounding last night! I have not been that blown away by an artist that I wasn't already super familiar with since Massive Attack in '10 at the Wiltern. Last night it exactly why I love live music. There are few moments I can remember the exact day and moment where I became a huge fan. On 5/23/00 I saw an epic Smashing Pumpkins show the day they announced their break-up and I became a die-hard fan that day. For Tool it was my first time seeing them at Verizon Irvine 11/1/01. And for Peter Gabriel it was last night. I was somewhat familiar with his catalog before last night but after that show I am about to become much more adventurous with his discography! The sound at the Bowl was just impeccable. I was in section in P1 and usually when I'm that far back the sound dwindles a bit...but not last night. The sound was flawless and perfectly loud where I was sitting. Highlights for me were "No Self Control", "In Your Eyes" and my favorite moment of the night "Biko" which was a total spiritual ending to a phenomenal show. So glad I made the decision to go last night....a concert experience that will not be forgotten anytime soon!

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    The only time I've seen Peter Gabriel was with Genesis. He looked like this...

    With his hair cut in the middle part..




    He dressed up in costumes. I remember a fly costume, but perhaps it was a bat. I found a bat photo...
