A Totally Outrageous 80′s Weekend

The TV Guide

Whew! It’s been a bizzy weekend around here … and I still have another day left. On Saturday night, I made my way to the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA to see a concert performance by Bow Wow Wow and Berlin. Yesterday day, David and I made our way to a pool party to celebrate the joint birthdays of our friends Tom and George. Yesterday evening, we met up with our NYC friends Bradley and Jon for dinner and then last night, I made my way out to the Echoplex in Silverlake to partake of a Smiths Night dance party. It’s been go go go but it’s also been fun fun fun. More »

Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me

The TV Guide

Last night I drove 100+ miles north to Bakersfield, CA to see the amazing Morrissey in concert and let me tell you … it was a trip WELL worth taking. I got to see Moz last November in Escondido, CA (about 100 miles south of LA) so it was only apropos that I trek 100 miles north to see him this time around. I’ve seen the man in concert many, many times and he never disappoints. The setlist was full of gems, we got to hear some new songs and the man seemed (generally) in fine spirits. Click below to see some of the photos I snapped and check out video of his performances of Alma Matters, How Soon Is Now? and Everyday Is Like Sunday. More »

Hangin’ With Shirley Manson & Garbage

The TV Guide

So … last night was pretty freaking cool, if I do say so myself. As you may recall, my BFF Darion and I have been enjoying ourselves IMMENSELY at some Garbage concerts here in LA over the past few nights … but last night’s show as TRULY the best of the bunch (thus far). Long story short, after another amazing performance, Darion and I were invited backstage to hang out with Shirley Manson, Butch Vig, Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and new touring bassist Eric Avery after the show. I was fortunate enough to first meet Shirley and the guys way back in the 90′s on their first tour. Last night’s hang session just brought back all of those really exciting feelings. Click below to see how cute we looked together last night :) More »

Andrew W.K. Rocks Pomona, CA

The TV Guide

A couple nights ago I got to see Andrew W.K. live in concert here in Hollywood, CA. Last night, I made the 40 minute trek to Pomona, CA to see AWK in concert for the second time … this time around, the show was much more fun! While the LA show as good, the Pomona show was way more fun … because the crowd was really into the show. This time around, I recorded video of AWK performing his hit song Party Hard, which you can watch in full below. Check it out. More »

Andrew W.K. Rocks LA

The TV Guide

As I mentioned yesterday, I had a date with my Detroit homeboy Andrew W.K. last night at his concert performance at the Avalon in Hollywood, CA. I’ve been an AWK fan for years, ever since he made it big with his debut album I Get Wet 10 years ago. When last I saw Andrew in concert, I was still living in Detroit so I’ve been itching to see the man in concert for a long time. Last night’s show as so fun, well worth the wait. Click below to see some photos and watch video of his performance of a new song titled Head Bang. More »
