Looks like I'm seeing Flaming Lips up in pacific northwest in July. Some other good bands too
Capitol Hill Block Party 2013
I'm seeing Black Sabbath Sept. 3 at the Coliseum..anyone else??
they're also playing in upland on a friday so i might go to the 909 for that.................
It was one of those "which band are you hear to see so I can mark it on my chart to see who gets paid what" type venues. Man...used to go see hoobustank (when they had a U, not an A, and a sax player) there all the freakin time in high school.
I was very close to going to see Strife there a few months ago, but passed. Should go back as now it's only about 10 minutes from where I live. Might be a trek from orange county, but that vinnie caruana is pretty dreamy...
Been awhile since I posted here. We just saw The Tubes at SLO Brew the other night. Yep, The Tubes. 4 of the original members too and they were f'ing fantastic. Bill Spooner is simply a guitar god. Fee Waybill still pulling out all the stops at 62 years of age and sounding great.
And just to catch up, we've seen these shows so far this year:
James Hunter 6 (Bimbo's - SF)
honeyhoney/Ryan Bingham (SLO Brew, we left 2 songs into Bingham but honeyhoney were great)
Los Lobos (SLO Brew)
Jello Biafra & the Guantanamo School of Medicine (SLO Brew - one of the loudest, most rocking shows I've seen in a LONG time - had a f'ing blast)
Dr. John (SLO Brew)
Upcoming shows we're hittting:
Junip (Bimbo's - SF)
JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound (SLO Brew)
Rosie Flores (SLO Brew)
Son Volt (SLO Brew)
i never really got into i am the avalanche or the movielife, but you're right, vinnie is a dreamboat. haha. i have geoff rickly's solo mixtape so i'm heavily inclined to go to one of the shows, likely the upland one.
