I think I'm going to try to go to Low End Theory on Wednesday - "secret special guest" the day after FlyLo's album is released, wonder who it could be? Anyone else going?
Isn't that the one with Erykah Badu? I'd like to see that one also, no info yet thoz...
Nah that's the Boiler Room set on Tues and I'd be shocked if any of us find out how to get in.
Technically, you are supposed to buy a transfer, but to do that you need to go upstairs.. It would be easier to just buy a day pass.
I never get a transfer ticket, it's never been an issue even when getting my ticket checked. We're taking the metro from k-Town as well, gonna go hang out at Boho Gastropub beforehand at hollywood/highland.
3/21/15 - Tweedy @ Theater at Ace Hotel // 3/27/15 - At The Gates (w/Converge, Pallbearer) @ Wiltern // 4/14/15 - Cloud Nothings @ Echo // 4/19/15 - Electric Wizard @ Roxy

How is Section R2 at the Bowl? deciding which tix to grab for Neil Young
11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena
Hell of a setlist tonight at Wilco. Joanna was wonderful as well, especially Cosmia.
Pemberton (7/18-20) ~ FYF (8/22-23)
I'm horrible with her song titles but I definitely heard Bridges & Balloons, Inflammatory Writ, and Cosmia.
Pemberton (7/18-20) ~ FYF (8/22-23)
Bridges And Balloons
Have One On Me
Joanna and Wilco were both great tonight, and, as usual for a KCRW sponsored show, were heavily marred, for me at least, by the very talkative people all around.

For your health
Super seats is the line I impose as well unless the tickets are a really good deal.
If you wanna be surrounded by people talking, be my guest.

Are Orange County residents always just drunken messes going out to concerts? The crowd for Alt-J at the Observatory/Galaxy tonight was ridiculous. It seemed like everyone was just wasted and being obnoxious. Huge parties of people just screaming conversations at each other during the whole set, and being absolute mean assholes about it when you ask them to quiet down. Then drunk girls to our right screaming out the lyrics to the song over the lead singer. What a frustrating show. Despite that, they had the best reception I've seen out of the four shows I've been to, now. The crowd was going absolutely apeshit for them and it was easy to forget they were the opening band.
Fingerprints set was a much more respective (respecting?) crowd. It was rad being up that close and able to see everything they did on every instrument. Got to meet them after the show and talked for a while about the tour and what bullshit it was to be compared to Radiohead. They were like "How? How is it even possible for someone to be the next Radiohead when they're still here?" I talked up reddit with the drummer Thom, who is a fellow redditor. We laughed about how he posted the link to his band's album like four months ago and no one at all responded to it, but suddenly within the past couple weeks he's gotten like 700 private messages. I told him he's gotta be careful what he writes, now. But yeah, got them to sign my LP and a poster and then took a group shot with them.
Overall my three Alt-J shows in 24 hours were pretty fantastic, and Carmageddon helped a lot. Gus said they're gonna be back at the Troubadour in December. Can't wait!
Everything about the Bowl show tonight was so good. Probably the warmest it's ever been while I was there, glad I dressed light. The run of songs from Trying > Almost > Misunderstood (32 nothings, haha) > Jesus > Handshake was absolutely incredible. Sunken Treasure was amazing. Seeing Ashes of American Flags for the first time, and for the first song of the encore no less, left me speechless. Joanna and her band were predictably wonderful as well.
There were moments when the wind was following their ''noise'', it was great. Also, the poster was badass. Only 250 made...
