The Afghan Whigs - Debonair

The Afghan Whigs “Debonair (Live at the Fonda Theatre 11/09/12)”

My buddy bootlegged the Afghan Whigs show Rachel and I went to on Friday. Stoked.

Setlist from the Afghan Whigs show last night at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood.
To say I was impressed with their performance would be a huge understatement. They sounded (and looked) absolutely incredible. I’m tempted to go see them again tonight…that’s how good they were.
So, if they come to your town on this tour, DO NOT MISS THEM. For reals…they were goddamned amazing last night.
EDIT: I knew this setlist seemed overly long - I didn’t remember hearing several of the songs listed here, but I just went with it because I was kinda drunk and I trusted the judgment of the fine folks that posted this online. Anyways, “Wicked Games,” “Let’s Stay Together,” “Little Red Corvette,” and “Purple Rain” weren’t played at this show. Maybe at a different show on this tour, but not on this one. Sorry for the confusion.

Sorry, last one. Witnessing Endeavor’s final flight was really cool. Glad I got to see it with my own eyes.
I didn’t take this picture. Check out a bunch more pics here if you’re interested.

Taking my best gal to see The Master today at the Arclight dome in Hollywood. I haven’t been this excited for a movie in a long time. Not since Vampire Dog.

Yesterday Rachel and I hiked up to the Hollywood sign (which you probably already know). It was hot, and long, and a bit strenuous (especially if you’re completely out of shape…like me), but once we got to the top it was so incredible. The views were amazing - you could see for miles in every direction. It was pretty awesome. Here are just a handful of the pictures we took.

Unfortunately, you can’t get too close to the sign. It’s fenced off and monitored 24/7 by cameras and LAPD helicopters (if you look closely in the 8th picture, you can see the chopper flying by).

Made it to the top! Check out the Hollywood sign behind me.

Mogwai “Killing All The Flies” live at the Fonda Theatre, Hollywood, California, June 2, 2012.

The guy filming this was sitting right in front of us. You can hear me cheering at the beginning. I love how perfectly clear the audio is until the song peaks, and then it’s barely listenable. Ha ha.

Tonight. Right fucking now.

Going to the Magic Castle in Hollywood tonight with my pals D-rocc and Bree. It’s going to be so absurd. But so awesome.
If you don’t know about the Magic Castle, do yourself a favor and find out.

Crooked Fingers “New Drink for The Old Drunk”

Pretty excited to see Crooked Fingers in Hollywood tonight. Especially since I missed Archers of Loaf this past weekend. Last time I saw Crooked Fingers was in 1999 when they played a tiny dive bar in Vegas to a crowd of about 10-20 people. Poor turnout, but an amazing show.

Wait, what??? Holy shit…The Music Box is closed. What a fucking DRAG.
