@ the Che Cafe
first off- sold out before the second band took the stage. so... i didn't even know the che cafe COULD sell out. it did, and fast. i actually have a picture waiting in line AFTER the sell-out.
a consequence of the sell out is that i only have a couple pictures, mostly of the crowd, and frankly, i hardly actually WATCHED any of the show, because if there's one thing that 18 year olds and I agree on- they don't want to be standing next to me in a sweaty che cafe, and i don't want to be standing close to them.
this really only impacts my evaluation of Mr. Tube and the Flying Objects. This was purportedly their first! show! ever! but they already had a record and a cd, which is pretty extraordinary. Could have something to do with the fact that the band contains one Pall Jenkins(right?) of Black Heart Procession. Don't know if this is a new project, or a side project. Mr. Tube is a fairly member intensive affair- horn section, two(?) drummers, bass, guitar, singer. They kind of remind me of a cross between iSociety! and, um, Black Heart Procession. They also have the guitarist from grand ole party- john paul- playing saxamaphone(simpsons reference, ok). So local music fans who've seen iSociety! or Black Hear probably have a good feeling about this group and their sound- reggae, dubby, afro beaty, multi-instrurment, ten minute songs, etc. again, if it had been a less crowded environment with better lines of sight i would have watched more.
atoms- who i saw on wednesday- great. had a good chat with joey atoms, we talked about STUFF- I hate it when I talk to people and they're like "don't tell anyone". dang! makes it harder for this to me a gossip driven blog.
talked to tim pyles- again, i won't relate what he had to say about 91x and their recent personnel move.
talked to kristen gundred(grand ole party)- about the louis xiv situation. again- won't relate the substance, but suffice it to say that Grand Ole Party is moving on and there are no hard feelings.
kill me tommorow is growing on me!! i want to do a show with them, but I know that can never be, because they are art fag and i am cat dirt. can't we all be friends?
plot to blow up the eiffel tower- wow. what a ride. those guys accomplished a lot in five years, and i look forward to watching them in bands like the prayers(tonight- beauty bar san diego). they should let charles rowland back into some girls. kudos to the plot to blow up the eiffel tower, i think the che was like their home, and it was fitting that they end their run at the che. good work.
Dedicated to classics and hits.
