I just looked at the openers. Agreed that there isn’t much to get excited about. 

We got here late but they were still selling VIP upgrades so we were able to score two seats upstairs for $40 each.  Excellent for an old fart like myself. Don’t have to bother with the awful crowd and we have a great view.

Saw death grips last month and it was one of the most disappointing shows I’ve ever been to. There were no lighting effects other than a single strobe and a red background, ride looked out of energy / tired as Hell with minimal stage presence,  and the crowd was full of kids and parents pushing in and out. The vocals were way too quiet compared to everything else. At least they played all my favorite songs, though.

Saw Perturbator last night, didn't think I was gonna go cause work but I got out early enough to just catch his set. Missed Gost though. 

 

Wednesday I'm seeing Madeintyo and Thursday I'm seeing La Dispute, both for work related reasons, but should be cool.

So who scored with the $20 tickets today? I got a pair for Rob Thomas and for 311/Dirty Heads. My fiance wanted some for J.Lo but those went fast.

I'm getting Mastodon and Coheed tickets, then maybe some Beast Coast (Joey Badass, with Flatbush Zombies and a bunch of other NY artist), and maybe Smashing Pumpkins tickets.

I saw Pertubator and Gost last night. Had never seen either and had missed both on separate occasions. So rad they played together and it was damn amazing. The crowd was so wild and rowdy and fun, for both, i had a freaking blast!! Nonstop energy

Casey's final show in Chicago was incredible. I don't think I've ever seen so much love in one room. It was so nice to get to spend time with friends I rarely see as well as meet some new ones. I'm really looking forward to seeing the photos captured in the next couple days as they emerge online. I don't think there could've been a better send off for this band

I finally saw The Cure this last weekend, and had an absolute hell experience getting into the Rose Bowl, the show was a festival taking place in the park next to Rose Bowl and I had work, got out at 3:30 and Deftones played and went on at 4:45, went to park when a woman waved me into the rideshare drop off, by the time I parked I walked over to the line and it was about half a mile long, so I completely missed Deftones, THEN the woman who scanned my ticket scanned it twice and said it wasn't valid, I had to walk to the box office and waited 20 minutes for them to tell me they couldn't check the ticket scan history and couldn't do s refund because I didn't buy the ticket ( I got it off craigslist). After asking the guy I bought it from if anyone else had the ticket, he said no and agreed to talk to the box office if needed to work out a refund, waited in the 20 minute line again for this new person to immediately pull up the ticket scan history and she saw it was scanned 9 times in about 20 seconds. They gave me a new ticket and I saw the last 5 or so minutes of Pixies then waited 40 minutes in the merch line. Goldenvoice can somehow run Coachella but can't do anything else.

 

Also, flying up to San Francisco for the weekend, gonna catch Massive Attack tomorrow and then Metallica Sunday for the S&M2 show. If anyone is in SF and can point me to a good bar around the new Chase Center or Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, I'm all ears.

Had a punk rock week. Saw Dropkick Murphys for the first time on Tuesday, with Clutch and Hatebreed who were great as always. Then on Thursday I got to see Bad Religion do a small radio show that happened at my old college. You could only get in through radio contest but they gave my school a guest list and I managed to make it. They only did 7 songs and an interview but it was fun nonetheless. Then last night I caught Bad Cop Bad Cop and The Bar Stool Preachers at my favorite punk bar. A good week, it has been.
